I am looking for a band to join. could be covers or originals, but most important i would love the band to rock. my interest span somewhere from blues to rock (more like classic rock and not much like shredding metal - think deep purple ac/dc black sabbath led zeppelin etc).
maybe just a songwriting buddy would do as well. someone with good vocal/lyrics skills?
i am a pretty versatile guitar player - i have experience with slide (e standard or open g) , acoustic - a bit of fingerstyle, drop d playing, normal tunings. i can do rhythm but tend to lead or play riff/oriented rhythm.
i am pretty good with major/minor/pentatonic scales i think still trying to get my head around modes and other tricky things.
i did play keys live before but i would really prefer play guitars. i dont mind occasionally try to do keys , say on records or something but i dont want to specialize in it.
i would like to find either lead guitar or rhythm guitar with shared leads position in anything blues to rock related.
alternatively can do blues keys on my roland vr 09
not both in the same band -- too much hardware to lug around, been there, done that.
i am in 4x age and i have a fulltime job so i cannot dedicate all days but can rehearse once a week or a fortnight.
hit me a message or find me on facebook (marat bakirov).
or mbakirov@ would do

John Legend - All of Me - Acoustic Cover
John Legend - All of Me - Acoustic CoverThis is a cover of a wonderful song called "All of me" by John Legend. Since I heard this song I immediately started to picture it played on the acoustic guitar. My friend done a very good job on vocals here.
Perfect Child - A tribute to Jon Lord
Perfect Child - A tribute to Jon LordJon Lord of Deep Purple is one of my greatest inspirations about the music. His works like Concerto for Group and Orchestra ,Sarabande and others are my all time favourites. I've been shocked in Juliy 2012 when I knew he passed from darkness to light. So I made this track with lots of emotions which I tried to express in a sound. It took me some time to start learning the keyboards, I actually started in January 2012, but Jon's death pushed me to do something and record something. So here is my composition as a tribute to Jon Lord. You can here three tunes (or their slight variations) from all star Deep Purple songs plus my own melody and harmony. The idea to make a track appeared when I realized that Perfect Strangers is a very beautyfull melody when played calm on a piano. I've tried to make the song in a way I see Jon - lots of classic music, some hammond, but also some experiments with the synth (I've heard Jon using synths in Windows ans Sarabande). Also it ends suddenly. Just like a death is always unexpected. So here is my second composition. I devote it to Jon Lord - the man who changed the music. R.I.P, Mr Lord, you will be remembered for a long time.
