Any other musical brewers out there? Use this thread to share your videos/recordings/webpages! Whether you do solo work, play in a band, sing in a choir, or play the electric triangle. Lets show each other some support in our different crafts.
Music=art. Beer=art. Music=beer? (cue twilight zone music)

I'll start! Check out my band Restless Ammunition! Its me and three guys I went to college with playing gross punk songs. We just finished up a 5 song EP you can download for free here:

I find I play better and easier when I'm drinking. Especially on stage.

True that. It is a fine line though and many a times I have crossed it...

I'm a guitarist, used to be bass player but guitar fits my personality. I'm fiddling around with trying to learn to play the banjo a bit.

I have some kind of guitar learning disability, but I keep ridin' that short bus to class...

I find that the more other people drink while I'm playing, the better they think I sound.

Funnily enough when I only played guitar and did a bit of backing vocals I could get really tanked and no problems whatsoever. Since starting up this band I tend to do a lot of main vocals and all the guitar, and I'm really crap at remembering lyrics at the best of times, so certain songs are really demanding plus I also notice that drinking alcohol makes my vocal chords fall apart faster than having a pint of soda and lime to get me through sets. Mind you, we frequently do about 35 songs a night of which I'm main vocals on about 50 to 60%.

Here are a few vids if anyone's interested.

I play as a hobby. Once in a while I'll have a glass or two while practicing and there is a spot where I sound really good, then shortly after that it's all down hill.

Wish I had a few friends who played bass and drums. Wish I could find the time to install some software and learn how to program bass and drums...

I am a "solo musician". I have been playing guitar for about 15 years. I played in and out of bands for 10 years, and decided that I don't play well with others! So, this project I have recently started working on is called March of the Sloth. I named my brewery Sloth brewing because of it. But here is a song I recorded some months ago. If I continue to post any of these on HBT, please know that the sound is going to change dramatically. I would like to focus more on what I love most, which is instrumental metal. But here is my ambient song!.......................................
