I do my vocals, and i try to write my own Lyrics though they need work. My voice is raw and edgy, but Dean and the singer from his band, and everyone else too,[ sorry buddy, forgot your name again. I'm really horrible with them] defined it as a low howling yowl punky gritty sound, harharhar.. nice guys XD
I have had one casual Jam session with one band, i wouldn't want to play with them again, too much negativity for me.
my influences, most noticable
JOAN JEAN AND THE BLACK HEARTS
Janice Jopline/Grace Slick/Jefferson Airplane
some others i'm sure to
I need to work up my confidence in myself and in front of other people though, and ultimately probably a bit of stage fright.. so
my current goal is to find a decent steady band, who is willing to take on a newcomer who needs practice. If i practice with people who are better then me, then i have to step up to bat and become better. I always give 110% even though i might suck, i learn fast.I am a hard worker, but my personality is very casual and laid back, though when i get nervous or around new people i become a bit hyper, which is when i go up to the mic to wear down my anxiety and just let her rip.
I am looking for someone who is willing to give some lessons and do some training in a very casual setting.. i'm broke though now, so as Bon scott once said "Open to charity."
update: friday 4/10/08
i had a jam session with Dean Johnson and his band. They were really good speechless. I was intimidated, and as much as my guts were turning, I shook it off and got up to sing. I screwed up just about all the songs i did, BUT how ever i kinda got my shit back together a bit for USSR, rebel yell, and if you want blood, even though i fucked up the lyrics on it, i kept going and they were really supportive. I've been practicing all week and oddly enough, they welcomed me back up to sing a few more songs through out the night XD i was nervous, but they made me feel at home. Thanks guys XD
anyways if people are interested in me, and i've sent out emails and will send out more till shit works out XD hahaha, hopefully i will find my place.
