    Are there any musicians here?

    I've been a musician for quite a while - mostly in the heavy genres. Actually I have a soft spot for classical music, extreme metal and experimental/electronic music and what I make is kind of a mix of all that.

    May 1st my 4th album was released. Its done pretty well.

    (sorry about the seperate URL - the youtube tags don't seem to be working for some reason) Here's a video preview of my latest release:

    Anyone else in here play, write and record music?

    Really like your music OP.

    Been playing guitar since I could read. I have a rough cut of one of the songs I have written recently:

    There isnt any bass guitar or vocals on it yet.

    I like your music as well! Its good!
    Couldn't help but notice a little bit of a Meshuggah feel. ....also noticed you're a Soilwork addict.

    Man, I haven't listened to that band in ages!

    I'm more of a Carach Angren addict.

    Awesome thread there's some good musicians in here. I am a drummer of 12 years and have recently picked up the guitar about 2 years ago.- This is a vid of me improvising on the guitar. Kind of a metal/ Hard rock feel.

    Sorry not very good sound quality.

    I'll throw a wrench in the gear and go classical on ya'll ass. I played trombone for 15 years, still pick it up to gig every now and then, but only if they pay me enough, haha. I subbed professionally after high school for the Dallas Opera Orchestra and Dallas Wind Symphony, but never landed a full time gig. Also played on a few local rock bands albums and did a few sound checks with Evans Blue, but they decided to go a different direction.

    My username kinda gives it away for me!
    I've been playing bass for quite a while now, though I don't practice nearly as much as I should. On the upside, I've finally started writing a bit of stuff with two guitarist friends of mine, and it's gotta be some of the best fun I've had in a while.

    Bass Player for about 8 years. I am mainly a heavy metal and classical fan when I listen to music. When I play I gravitate towards funk, stoner rock, blues etc. I like to be heard, and not just be filler. Love tapping and slapping.

    Got a midrange Yamaha 4, a maple 5 string Ibanez jazz bass, and just sold a Kramer aluminum neck 8 string. Want a Music Man. May have to check out the Bongo even though it is fucking ugly. Great reviews.
