SEEKINGRhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar.
We are a 7 pieces Band, bass, Keys, drums, Guitar, Mezzo Soprano, Soprano and Alto vocalist, female singers only . We are looking for a guitarist to replace the one we had who is leaving for personal reasons (To take care of his mother...). Our guitarist should be and have:
- Be an Excellent buddy
- Have a very Good Groove and the ability to play in the pocket
- At the same time, ability to play on a click when necessary
- Having good timing
- Being open minded on how to get the right sound
- Liking the type of music we play and having the Blues/Funk attitude (compared to the Rock and roll attitude...)
- Knowing what chords and charts are.
- Having good ears
- Open to use the gears that are proposed to him (sometimes guitars and effects provided as they have been taylored to the sound of the songs...)
- In other words:
"having the ability to adapt his playing and his sound to match the requirements of the songs and the request of the BL/MD"
More a kind of a "studio/session guy" than a Rock/Metal guy.
- Having the time to be dedicated to the project
- Being able and/or having the time to learn his part in practicing alone
- Coming prepared to the rehearsal
Even if you are young at your "Craft", the positive attitude and groove ability is more important than being a pure Rock Lead guitarist...
Our current repertoire is mainly based on Pure Funk/Pop/Dance post 2010's songs...
If it's older, it has to have a connection with the vision of the band...Think Chic/Nile Rodgers...
Our show is 4 hours, 3 sets of 16 songs.
Is it something you could be interested in....? Contact me at philippe dot baudet arobase yaa hooo dot fr like France...You understood...I have to write it this way to avoid the filter that will cancel my email address...
And yes, I tend to practice 2/3 times a week my own part but we rehearse with the full band once a week.
