Some of you might remember the thread I posted a few months back about joining a band as a vocalist and I asked for a critique of my vocal demo. Since then, the band has been doing great, writing quickly and playing some killer shows....

....then some of the members decided that one of our guitarist had to go. It was a bummer for me because the dude was my closest buddy in the band, but shit happens...

To be honest, it's definitely been better for the band...everything is that much tighter and sound wise it's working out for the better (volume wars and too much distortion were some negative points previously)...and I'm fucking LOVING having my hands tied with playing AND singing.

So, here is the first tune I did guitars and vocals on. The rhythm guitars are a mix of me and my other guitarist Bill, the solo is me. (And...I guess all the solos from now on? Bill told me he was done the other day after he listened to this, but he's a fucking monster player himself)....

Pretty stoked about this tune...I busted my ass off vocally for this one....the solo was/is a blast!

For gear nerds- rhythm track is a Gibson V into a Mesa Stiletto and an Ibanez JEM into a Peavey XXL, solo is also the JEM/XXL + Jerry Cantrell Wah and my TC G-Force for delay/reverb.

So what happened? Did you stop playing guitar or did you stop singing? :scratch:

Your post made it sound like you're still playing guitar and singing, even though the title says you aren't. :scratch:

:scratch:

Yeah I fucked it up and can't fix it....(I'm a case deep...)...

It's supposed to be "So I'm NOW singing AND playing guitar"....if anyone wants to fix that instead of jackin off to hermaphrodite midget porn, feel free.

I joined the band as a vocalist but ended up doing both.

Ah... My memory must be going... :scratch: I thought you've been singing and playing guitar in your band for a while now. So you were first playing guitar, then switched to just vocals, and recently switched to both guitar and vocals?

Either way, congrats. Guitar+vocals looks cooler than just guitar or just vocals. :lol:

Have any live videos? I'd be interested in seeing them. :yesway:

Yeah, He tried to put together a band about a year and change ago, some stuff happened and whatnot, and it never happened. He also called me about playing bass to fill in for a show for he was going to play in December, but I guess they found a permanent member in time or something :lol:

I'm working on putting getting a sabbath-y stoner rock type band together and in shape to play out. I'm doing bass and vocals on it. No demo tracks with vocals yet though.

It's been about 2 months since I started playing guitar after another guitarist was canned, I was just singing first.

I have played and sang in every other band I've been in but 1 other one. I prefer to play and sing, (Yes, looks way cooler! hahahah) the guitar is a safety blanket for me and I don't have to worry about what to do when I'm not singing.

It was interesting singing and playing some of this stuff at the same time, I'm alternating when I go on auto-pilot....it's getting close to full on auto-pilot where I don't think of anything while I'm playing, which is the goal.

Yeah, I haven't met Cole yet, but he's certainly an active Facebook guy and posts whatever he's thinking whenever he wants. But hell, he's been busting ass for this show....which I think is in a mechanic shop.....should be interesting.

Oh....no live vids yet, at least of my playing and singing, just some stuff from our previous shows when I was singer-only.
