How do your band jam? Do you forge jams into compositions?

My last band recorded all our practices and got a lot of ideas out of long, drawn-out jams which got pretty messy. I'd listen to these in the following weeks, and extract ideas out of the things we...

Thanks again everyone! I also wanted to ask if anyone thought any questions were weirdly phrased or any options were missing? I already edited it slightly due to one person's answer earlier.

Thanks so much guys!



If you've ever regularly jammed with people in the past, and tried to form compositions out of that, we'd still love to hear your response!

Yeah, I find it easier to have one person as the "director" of where the song goes. They may not write all the parts exactly, but they can explain to the group what their ideas are in a song.

Try Bran Barr (especially latest release) and Aes Dana. Neither of them are particularly brutal, but it's celtic folk (tin whistles etc in both bands) fused with death/melodeath/black metal. Also,...
