What are the best ways to recruit members to your band?

I've been in a couple but they were all friends, I have since moved and don't know a lot of people. Suggestions?

Do you still go to school? if so ask your music teacher. Or maybe hold auditions? Or ask your friends if they have any friends that play musical instruments?

its pretty hard to find band members at school, go do a solo at a gig and you might attract someone

just get the word around that you are in search of a band. at school, if you have a job, clubs and the like, just let people know.

Thank you, here's another question.

What are some suggestions for practice, as a band. Me and my friend have a hard time cracking down and pounding something out. Should we lock ourselves in a room, yell, what should we do? I'm having extreme difficulties with this one.

Haha i have the same problem... I'm stuck with a couple of kids who are great and very talented but don't want to gig...yeah

Thank god im goin to college in august

For the second question...have a jam session if at all possible and record it. Then you can write songs based off that, crit yourselves, etc. Good luck!

Well, we wrote a full song today excluding an outro/solo. We need to tighten it up but this is the most progress we've really made in a long time, so thanks.
