As a musician and songwriter, I've always wanted to collaborate with people who had similar musical influences.  Of course, my main musical influence growing up was U2 so it would make sense to inquire on here. Did a little searching and didn't find anything. 

Example: I live in Southern California (Long Beach) and have looked for guitar players (who play similar to the Edge's style) that are looking to possibly collaborate a bit (I'm an vocalist, btw).  I've taken out ads on Craigslist but response is spotty.  Not looking to lock anyone into starting a band per se... I'm a busy guy myself... just thought I'd throw it out there and see if anyone is interested in having a conversation about it. 

Anyway, here's a sample of a demo I started with someone (we ended our collab).  It's just a start but I think there's a good idea in there somewhere.   8)

Me and a friend have been messing around, trying to make some music and do some cover songs, and we have improved quite a bit. Neither of us can sing though!
We both live in the San Fernando Valley though, not so close to Long Beach.

That's great.  Do you guys have any of your stuff online?

Not yet, I'll work on getting some of it online so you can take a listen.
I must add I thought that sample you posted sounded pretty good!

Hey wes, I was wondering if you might possibly have an extra mic for recording that you would be interested in selling? I am still in the process of getting the necessary gear together.

I'm so sorry I'm just seeing this.  I never got notified.  I didn't have one anyway.  Did you ever get your stuff online?

Hey man, it's cool. I haven't put anything online yet, because we still don't have anyone for vocals.
We have a cover of Ordinary Love just about done except for vocals. Would you want to try doing a vocal for that?

Actually, if you have original music, I'd like to hear that.  However, I'd love to hear your instrumental of Ordinary Love.  Can you send it?  Or upload it somewhere I can listen?

We have some original music we can show you soon, it's just not ready to be heard yet lol. I can send you a partial instrumental of OL. Do you have logic or pro tools?
