    Clearly, spelling and proofreading were not a part of this person’s education. Maybe they were too busy studying music.

    That reminds me. The Faces were a great band.

    That's too bad. It's a good thing they're not discriminating for the inability to spell and use of proper grammar.

    What do "veterans" have to do with it?

    Does he mean veterans as in military, or does he mean veterans of other
    bands?

    Either way, it does not make sense.

    I dunno, i think it's a good ad. I know what they want and it sounds like they have their act together. I'm not even close to the skill level they're looking for, nor do i live in ny so i have no dog in this race.

    But when a non-blues non-rock band wants a guitarist (especially in a megalopolis), they probably get tons of mediocre guitarists. Hell, if you took every musician in the world, stuck em in a stadium, and threw a rock into the crowd, you'd probably hit a mediocre guitarist.

    In tan pants.

    I get why they're frustrated.

    :hide

    *edit*
    Or ifallalot is correct and this group are delusional, bunch of dream theatre wannabes who just like looking down their noses at the masses. Who really knows?

    OP, go try out and let us know if they can bring it!

    That read more like a forum rant than an ad.

    Yes, like asking the wrong Gear Pager the weight of the guitar they have for sale.

    I think they had some bad experience. Totaly agree. Why waste precious time with 30 guys when only 3 fit your needs.
    To have a solid job means that your band mates don’t have to deal with your unpaid bills.
    This guy just want to save himself from some headache in a kind of unusual way.
    „No old poor blues guy who doesn’t come to rehearsal because of the long
    train ride“ would have been enough.

    Military status or service is a protected class for employment discrimination in New York. I wonder if this falls under that.

    The best musician I have ever known personally was a veteran (Iraq). And he was in his twenties. (RIP Mitch)

    "Jimmy" was in the Army so maybe they put too and too together.
