Am quite curious why Bassoon players are crazy?

Um, which one is the Bassoon anyway? lol

It's a great mystery in the music world ass to why all double reed players are crazy.

We have yet to determine if it's that crazy people are drawn to double reed instruments or maybe its something in the sound or vibration that drives oboe players especially nuts.

A lot of times DR players can fake sanity, but when you scratch the surface just a little the absolute psychosis is revealed and it's not pretty.

Synchronystic event!!!!!

Went to my farmers market this morning; there was a bassoon ensamble there playing marches by Sousa.

I probably haven't seen any bassoon players in 10 years; now after posting in this thread I see 6 of the scurvy moogs. Im freaking out now!!!

They were even selling Tshirts and CDs.

Lol... I really like sousa. DR players are prolly crazy because their pissed that their lips/mouth hurt from putting their teeth on both top and bottom lip. Also might wanna fix the spelling error there.

I know a singer, very well - when she gets in a writing slump her best option has always been to back off from it, not push, and let the songs come back to her.

A lot of her songs come from dreams. They are working on one right now this way, from a dream, just can't get it "just right", ya know? She wants to get the dark emotions she "felt" during the dream into the sound of the song.

She also likes to get to a, damn - forget what the word is, a certains state of mind via meditation if she is wanting a song to be quite deep in context.

I have a thread her with 4 of their cover songs (rock), but no one gave any feedback, so it died.

i fronted and wrote songs for a garage band (origionally called oxymoron, but we were gonna change it due to threats from german skinheads) but then a had a fight with the bassist over a misunderstanding. im still writing songs and stuff (ie "The End of the World", "Oh #, Where Did I Park the Car?", "Salvation in a Slim Jim Box") but the drummer and i decided to put the band on hold until we find a new bassist.

Those can be very difficult to come by. Guitar players all want to play lead, sluffing off the bassist as "can't play a real guitar". But, can you imagine a band (especially rock, imo) without a bass?

Come to think of it. My band has been a bit of a stop starter, because people who I don't wish to name, have arguments over nothing, like "Im the bassist, I wanna play guitar!" "I don't want to cover that song!" and "The Earth is flat baby!" It's terribly annoying when you want to start a band, yet they just can't play together because their egos overshadow their instruments.

This band does a simple vote. Band is 5 member, so vote is always a yes/no deal. When they get a keyboard in, it wil still be a vote for song deal, but if it is a tie situation, one that voted no for that song can use one of their "black balls" to veto the song. So many black balls are given per member per set, use all your black balls and ya can't veto another song until the next set of tunes is created. This way, there is never an argument.

I hear ya on the ego. Lead guitarist is on one of those right now. Practice is tonight, it's aaaallllll coming out bud, heh. Hell, the bassist told me yesterday he's not even bringing his guitar, he doesn't want to play - he wants this ego thing gone first. Jeez, it's not even "technically" the lead guitarists band, the lead singer formed the band, but she and the other 3 want a "no boss" band.

It's really daft in my view! I don't care if we make it big. Forming a band is just about a couple of mates jamming and having a laugh, not about who can play the best guitar, or who has the best looking guitar or whatever. It just completely throws me off.

Man you are going thru the exact same scenrio we seem to have here. This band was formed to have fun. The lead guitar has the ego trip now, and thinks they are ready for prime time, visions of fame and glory, etc etc. The other 4 are "pphhfftt, ya, uh-huh".

What is it about lead guitarist? It seems they are always the first to get a head trip going. Go figger.

No big deal if the lead bails in this one, as the other 4 members agree with my suggestion that this would give them the perfect opportunity to work on original material - which is what they want to do. The lead, for some reason, is stuck on doing cover tunes. Have you ever heard of a cover band making fame, fortune, and glory in the spotlight doing 80/90's tunes? lmao

I used to play bass and have sung in a band before.

When I was at my old highschool my friends and I would regularly put together bands to enter the battle of the bands with.

The sad thing is that we never got to play in our school battle of the bands and I believe the head music teacher was the reason why.

I went to a Christian school but was not a Christian and neither was a few people in the band. Now, Im someone who will listen to any music at all ( britney spears to mr bungle to the beatles) and I guess Im a bit 'strange' ( well I dont think so but to an elderly christian music teacher I might be).

So this music teacher sort of had the idea that we were some kind of satanist outfit masquerading as a Christian band and would never ever let us audition!

We did enter a few Battle Of Bands outside of school though and did win a few, so that was cool.

I know someone else mentioned it on this thread, and I agree...being on stage is such a rush, I love it ! Theres no other feeling.

As of about four days ago, I was asked to join a local metal band by the name of, Destroy the Last. We're currently working on an E.P, which should be finished in a month or so.

I'm in a band called Ocean Over from Minneapolis. I sing and play rythme guitar, piano and synths. It's loads of fun, even though we have no real talent.


You can hear our first E.P. which we recorded and mixed ourselves here.

heres a pretty good band, they use to live a couple blocks from me.

they made it on attack of the show.
i think crouton would have been better if he listened to me.
I told him to use lower pitch sybol to make the song a little darker

WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE!!

Seriously, haha I've always longed to hook up with a bass-playing muso chick and play gigs and life happily ever after. And my tastes are *also* the entire gamut of music, from my all-time favourites The Beatles to alternative rock and grunge. It would be great to hear from you if you're still following this thread.

I played guitar in a rock band through high school and university. We played in a couple of Battle of the Bands - we got a 'best original song' prize one year. Our demos made it to #1 on the local student radio charts for like weeks on end, I loved those days.

I've always been a songwriter, since age 6 and full-on from 11 onwards. Recorded my own stuff on 4 track and now computer of course. Recently bought myself a set of Roland electronic drums for recording, now they are a lot of fun! It's funny using the cheesy 80s'-sounding gated snare on a Slipknot song you're jamming to, makes everything very Beck and very eclectic. It's great to have fun with this stuff.
