I need a drummer as soon as possible. I go to a small school and there are almost no drummers. and tips on finding one within a 10 mile radius in the next week.

Why the rush? You can also look for previous threads onn how to find people.

just ask everyone if they are drummers. ask mates outside of school. ask them to ask their mates. etc etc

Theres really no way you could find a drummer and get them up to speed with your material in a mere week

It took us 4 months to find a drummer, but it was worth the wait! He\'s only 15 minutes away too. Just take your time and look around, and make sure you get the right person. Truse me, we\'ve went through many drummers and none worked except now.

not nessecarly true. my band had a show where our drummer couldn't go because he qualified for state in track. So a friend of ours played with us and did quite well.

find the local music stores and post flyers, and hope. We got lucky, most likely you'll have to be too.

I can't find a drummer anywhere in my area that plays anything but in church and school band, so I gave up and learned the drums myself, I've been playing for about 3 months, I can pass for a drummer, just not a good one.

Same here, a band who im mates with had a gig, but their drummer didnt show up so my drummer actually got up and drummed the song, without having rehersed and it went perfectly

it does work, but there is one thing that has to be done... you must play the songs they are playing to them
