My soon to be band

ok, so the other day i met a guy and found out that he played guitar. So we exchanged phone numbers and yesterday, had a jam session. we are hoping for a ska band and, its just hard to start a good band, you know, gettin everyone organized. another thing is that i promised id start a band with another friend, so i was wondering if its possible to have a band with three guitarists. Any tips are welcome. also i kind of need help starting my own ska beat, so can you please help me?

thanks

find a time of the week when you guys are all open, and just meet at a designated practice area at that time every week. And for the other question, well, Lynyrd Skynrd had 3 guitarists in the early days didn't they?

We had a similar problem with our band. We had 2 guitarist, but one quit because of a job and we hired another guy. Then the guitarist who quit said he wanted to come back so we had to make a decision. We ended up firing a long time guitarist for us for professional reasons and the other guy left with him because of friendship. But he recently came back which was a problem because I play guitar for our cover set along with the other guitarist. 3 guitars would be too much, so we made a deal that I would play lead guitar for our cover gigs and the guitarist who came back would play guitar with our other guitarist for the original gigs while I play synths.

You should ask someone to switch to bass though. It seems like bass players are hard to come by in all areas! It also wouldn't hurt to jam with 3 guitars to see what it sounds like.

Whitechapel and Iron Maiden.

A saw a few people on the Metal forum just talk **** about Whitechapel and how they were pointless because they had 3 guitarists. I guess they just don't hear the harmonies they have like in Father of Lies.

well my first advice is you got to commite to it, every step of the way. cause if you don't it woll fall apat, like my band, which at the moment consiss of 2 guitarists and a bassest, but me nd the bass guy are the only ones who ever do anything. second,find a drummer and fast, without the beat you will not get very far.

3 guitarist, seems like alot, i couldn't play with three.

I find that really the trick to having three guitarists is writing music accordingly. same with all instruments, it can be way overload, but if you all share the load you can come out with something quite incredible, it's very difficult to be simple with three players, but it's alot of fun... i was in a metal band with three guitarists, we played strange harmony progressions, and accounted for it though, so some of it worked out some was way too much... good ears in all is a must and even one ego can throw everything out of wack quickly and easily... but it's fun when it gets going.

Ska bands don't need 2 guitarists let alone 3. Unlike your standard band you're also going to have a horn section. If you can pull it off good for you but I'd suggest dodging the headache and going for 2 or even 1 guitarist.

Three guitarists?

Rhythm and harmonizing leads...?

That's all well and good in power metal and such, I guess...
