STILL PLAYIN AFTER ALL THESE YESRS

Hi my name is John. I started playing guitar in 1966 when I was 15. I have always played rythmn
guitar. Over the years I played on and off with various bands. Then a couple of years ago finally
hooked up with my old bass player from 68. We are now working on alot of original music and
after all these years of playin now takin lessons to play lead. Really getting into lead and my old
friend is now playin rythmn so basically two guys goin back to our old roots. Also when all
said and done we already check into recording a Cd. But I have learned over the years music will
always be a big part of my life.

Calling fellow musios

Hi,

My name is Andy.I live in Switzerland and i have my own band Cosmic pimp band.Mostly its me playing bass and guitars with session drums and keyboards.
I am looking for a drummer/keyboards/singer/sax, anything goes basically.
I am 4 songs into my latest album and all the players haven't met each other but have contributed to the music with file sharing.I like this concept very much and have decided to keep pursuing it.
The music is a nice mix of fusion and jam..using Hammond B3, Fender Rhodes, Clavinet, drums, bass and guitars.
If anyperson is interested in joining me on my project, i would love it to be someone with a strong connection to the dead and jam music as this is my main inspiration.

thank you and keep on truckin

Me and My Dreadful Grapes.

ONLY About~23 - 28 years ago, I was the lead singer/part-time percussionist for a (mainly-mostly) cover band in the redwoods-region called the Dreadful Grapes (our groupies/fans went by the name 'Grape Nuts'!). We had two guitarists - both of whom dosed before each & every show (I did NOT: Someone had to remember (to sing/) the lyrics; Jeff and Nick kept me 'on my toes: there never was a 'set' playlist.... they would jam after a previous song until (just like the Band) a musical sequence/ chord would 'pop up' and I (after dancin' with the audience off-stage) would hafta get back up there and attempt to remember the words ''on-the-fly'': which Wasn't That Easy to do! Just 'You Tubed' my old band's name (wondering if anyone had taped any of our shows): got an ''avant-garde'' fusion jazz-rock band somewhere out there recently: Cool!

Cave Street

When I left Texas in 2007 I lost my band. I was thinking I'd need a name for my new musical project when I was driving through New Providence near Clarksville. I saw a street sign that said Cave Street and it stuck with me.

Six years have passed and in that time I've recorded dozens of songs and soundscapes, some on my own and some with help from friends far and wide. Currently, I'm participating in the National Solo Album Month Challenge.

I wouldn't say that my music necessarily sounds like the Grateful Dead, but without the Dead's influence my music would surely not sound like it does.

Cave Street music is a 'first take' experimental blend of modern folk sensibilities, psychedelic textures, and stream-of-consciousness lyrics.

Immersing yourself in this improvisation-minded music can be like entering another person's dream but leaving before it's finished...

Thank You 26

Hi my name is Chris Dopey,
Im 47. Been writing music since I can remember. I can't say i'm a dead head, but my Aunt did take me to a show as a child. Boy did she get in trouble. Boy did it open my ears. Because of that show I began digging thru her albums much to her dismay. I was blown away, not just by the dead. I found Rare earth the tower of power. These massive jam bands the sound was everywhere. Changed my writing style for life. I no longer heard a single instrument but multitudes in my head. But sadly those weren't the bands I could create at the time so I wrote for 3 and 4 piece bands. Though I still heard the full potential of each song in my head. I always wanted to write a dead song but I could never get that sound. When Jerry Garcia died I was learning box of rain from a song book. I thought it strange when I found out. I was learning a dead song when I got the sad news. So I went to the index of the book. Something happened I can't explain it, the song title began to tell a story. so I grabbed up my guitar and wrote Thank you 26 in 5 minutes. Ever since I wrote it I all ways wanted to get it to the band. Whether they liked it or not wasn't the point. I just wan't them to know how much there music influenced me. So here is my last attempt. And I'm fine with that. Anyone who wan't it can have it for free. Just contact me. and I will email mp3. Here is the the link for the slideshow on youtube. plz don't come after me for photo rights I took them from google images. And I am very poor you won't get much.
