So I downloaded this program called mixcraft. I knew I can make songs on my own, and I can, but, I am not in a band, is that a bad thing? OR is that lame? I cant seem to find a drummer or anything. I will soon, it perfectly fine to make songs with out a band, just me?

No, it's not bad or lame. I much rather writing on my own. I don't like doing live shows. I'm way too worried I'll **** up.

I just write music to express myself and my ideas. Also, it's good 'cause you have complete control over everything, which you wouldn't in a band, in most cases anyways.

I do my music by myself and so far everything is working out just fine for me.

So I was wondering, are black people capable feeling love? I mean can their brains comprehend that kind of emotion, or are they not programmed that way.

There's nothing wrong with making songs without a band. Gives you that much more creative influence

Steve Winwood's Arc of A Diver was recorded entirely by himself, as were several other albums I can't think of at the moment.

I used to make songs all on my own for a while. Then I realized "wait, how am I gonna play this live?"

Dave Grohl started Foo Fighters as a 1 man band...

Being a one man band isn't so bad. You can have practice whenever you want, you are not held back by a lame band member, no fights, you'd have a song exactly how you would want it. Although live, I wouldn't know how that would work.
If Rock is a life-style, then Metal's an addiction

Yelloooow!

Its cool, I do it quite often, Im in a band right now, and I keep doing it. Mainly as a side project of sorts.
But you should play with other people too, they are both great and different ways of experimenting with music.

That didn't help any cause.

Honestly it's just my opinion but that guy is terrible. I hope you were sarcastic when you expected all of UG to watch that clip and agree with you.

There is a one man band around here named "Goot"

You can find him on myspace if you are interested, he is really good.

He writes and records all of his own stuff, and for live playing he has a couple guys that play with him for his live band.

If you want to get really technical about it..

1. Grab sticks.
2. Bang sticks on drums.

Yea dude, this is NOT lame or bad. The true purpose of music is to make yourself happy, as boring as that sounds. You dont feel the urge to show off for anyone, good for you!

I have 90% of the say so in my band, they know I'm the lead writer.


It's not an ego thing, but the individual members in a band need to understand their roles. I'm not talking about them getting to write their own instrument lines, but maybe that they need to understand that certain people are better at certain things than other people. Like, I'm the best writer in the band and I'm in charge of writing the music. Our drummer is energetic and has such a warm personality that you can't help but love him, he does wonders for our stage presence that nobody else can. Our bassist has an amazing voice and can sing wonderfully, but can't write lyrics to save his life. etc etc

I am a 1 man band. I use audacity though.

Although I play guitar, drums, and bass (and the occasional other instruments such as mandolin and setar), I jam with my brother whenever he visits from college; me on drums and my brother on guitar. we pull off a cool garage band-black keys kind of sound. I would much rather work on that more than my one man band.
