We used to use recycler in the early 80’s, but mostly word of mouth worked the best
Thank you all for your replies.
There's a ton of pretenders and real deal bands out there.
Unfortunately, we remember and focus on the crap.
I don't profess to be the next EVH; Bettencourt; Yngwie or SRV but there's an expectation of superior ability from callers.
I think I'm more of a Mike Campbell/Joe Walsh vibe player.
At least, that's what I tell inquirers.
Am I good enough or is this situation legitimate?
I think I give an honest assessment of myself and hope callers do the same.
IMO, playing situations are a 2 way street........the auditioners sometimes forget that they're being auditioned too.
Id rather listen to Campbell n Walsh any day
That's the beauty of bandmix. Each musician or band has a profile page to describe who they are, and some even post videos of them performing. So you do get a little more information before wasting your time to initiate contact.
IMHO, the best way to find bandmates is to put yourself out there, get out and play! With ads, you may get lucky but you'll probably have to wade through a lot of losers to find people you're compatable with..Open mike nights are a good way to make yourself known to the better bands and players.
Use to be the back of the New Times here....
man i miss the ads at the mom & pop music stores..weekly to the bulletin board,,that is how every band we ever played in was formed..musicians used to go to em just to talk gear and next thing ya know you were jamming..now its all hidden behind the scenes,,
In my most angry moments, I've never felt like this................
This band is not for me.
Good church song, that would go over big with the vicar!
Yeah, happy, happy, happy, joy, joy, joy.
It would go over big with Monsignor Sam.
A loving song to play for my wife when she gets up this morning.
I don’t think it would go over very well.
