Has anyone tried forming a band, but had one position that's pissed you off, because no one can do it? For my band, although we've had trouble because our drummer is too lazy to show up to practice, but mainly, we haven't found a singer yet... there's a hundred guitarists in our school (although only 3 or 4 good ones, 2 of which are in our band), there's one other bass player (who sucks), and a few other drummers, but no ones sings. Anyone else has this problem?

I got it pretty bad. I can't find a bassist, a drummer or another guitarist. I'll probably be stuck with singing and lead.
#3
yup. but i know someone who is outgoing enough to actually step up to the mike so its ok.

I can never find a drummer. I've been searching for at least a year. I've looked everywhere they hang out too. Chuck-E-Cheese, the special ed room, even in lockers but one can't be found. At least they make machines for that...

Well I've found all the above (I do the singing) but KEEPING a drummer is always the hardest. We went through 3 drummers within a 6 month time span. I just lost an amazing bassist unfortunately, and not many people are true bassists like he was, so thats gonna b a hard position to fill. Guitarist grow on trees, but finding a good creative one is equally as difficult.

The Singer and Rhythm guitar is never an issue, because I do both, and I always have either a drummer or a bassist because my buddy's really good at both. We just found a really good lead player, but its getting a bassist which is hard.

Well, i've been trying to find Waldo for my band...

That bitch is tricky

EDIT: Dammit, beaten to the punch!

i have a pretty good singer, the bassist is a pretty good one but the drummer sucked and i couldnt fire him cause if i fired him the singer and the 2nd guitar would leave (they are close friends). now the drummer is leaving to a far away place so im in search of a good drummer, but its been hard to find...
LESSON: never hire a close friend as bandmate, cause u wont be able to fire him or if u fire him he wont be ur friend anymore

bass, drums, vocals. Impossible in a 6000 person town to get a band together that has goals to be something bigger than a weekend bar/cover band.

Theres ALOT of guitarists, though not many good ones (I dont consider myself good enough for a band yet so no im not just being a prick)

Theres a fair amount of singers

Like no bassists or drummers


Too many damn guitarists who dont bother trying to get better

I know. The only two REALLY good guitarists in our school are in our band, and the rest of them just know a couple songs that they think make them cool, and, fairly often, suck at those too.
