My Band

Posted 31 December 2010 - 10:32 PM

Although most of you probably don't want to listen, I thought I'd post this here just to give it a shot, it couldn't hurt.

I am currently in a band, as a drummer, and we are currently playing covers and small gigs.

Here is our best cover.
http://www.youtube.c...h?v=n_WUYSpuorg

Quality isn't studio or anything, but it's pretty decent.

This was at a party for our school.

We are looking for some CONSTRUCTIVE criticism.

Things We Already Know:
1. Our singer sucks
2. Guitarist needs to lay off the bar chords
3. Bassist needs to be more original
4. Entire band needs more energy

Thank you,
Andrew Gould

Not bad. But if the singer got some lessons, or whatever. I'm sure you guys would be pretty good.
Main things with bands that I've seen is confidence. Have confidence, and people would want to listen.

Goodluck with it m8s

I think a good bit of the singers problem is he didn't seem to know the song that well, little more practice.

Although it's kinda hard to tell on the video the crash symbol sounds a little stiff. Might want to look into getting a better crash to give it a little more color.

Bassist needs to crank it up some, and the guitarist needs to loosen up a tad, he seems tense and his chord changes are very sudden.

Not bad for a bunch of youngins.

The cymbals are pretty high-cal. Zildjians and Sabians. There all about $300 each. Except the hats, they weren't very expensive.

I don't know. If you look at my channel there are some other videos of me playing on them.

I've been on B&. I'm personally a B& head. Not what I'm looking for.

Drumming was definitely the most impressive thing in the whole ensemble. Shame about the song choice. If you're into punk, might I suggest some Minutemen to give the guitars a chance to do some real work.

Yeah, the drumming was the best.
What you need to do, right, is:
Get the bassist to hold his instrument less like Mark King and more like Nikki Six. He might require a longer strap.
Get the guitarist to stop wearing a hat. Give him a delay to cover some of the chord-chord-chord-chord lacklustre strumming.
Wear more black. Learn to mosh.
Get some topless chick to crowdsurf past 3/4 of the way through when the audience is starting to get bored.

Then you need to rename yourselves "Orbital Sander".

Your guitarist needs to learn palm muting and also some rhythm.

If you can achieve this, you don't even need to be good. People will just think you are.
