If you've ever dared to venture into the "Musicians" forum on Nashville's Craigslist, you'll know that this poster has a point...at least initially:

I see a lot of ads by the same posters, looking for a bassists, looking for a drummer - and then I see a lot of ads by the same posters, bassist looking for band, drummer looking for band...does anyone actually read these messages? Besides the ones criticizing the music industry. No one but no one gets famous without being rich first, and absolutely no one is "discovered". Some marry producers (Faith, Shania, etc...) Some are born into money (despite press bios claiming otherwise; Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift, Paris Hilton, Brooke Hogan). So how about us Nashville musicians just do something positive and fun. How many guitar players are out there? I'm going to set a Guinness World Record for the most guitar players at one time, and I need over 2000 guitar players. Be a part of music history, and help establish the nickname "Music City" as a moniker that means something!!!

So how 'bout it? Over 2,000 Nashville noodlers wanking in one another's faces! The poster linked to the MySpace of his band Hydrophonic Space, and given their influences, music and inexplicable pictures of dragons, Ultimate Warrior and 420 propaganda, they'll be looking for something along the lines of Jerry-Garcia-meets-Steve Miller-meets-Jimi Hendrix-meets-Warcraft-meets-a-fat-bong-rip.
