Re: Putting myself out there ( uncle Larry, this ones for you)
Just wanted to agree with everyone else. It's a really well worded ad. (I also like the bit about the "live in boyfriend").
I put out a similar ad some years ago. I actually only got one response - from a guitarist - but it turned out that was all I needed. We played together for a few months and I learned such a lot. It gave me the confidence to start auditioning for bands shortly after.
Good luck, I'm looking forward to hearing how it goes.
