Your always ready to be in a band; as long as you can find musicians of about the same skill level and interest.

^ This. Just find other kids you get along with and have similar musical taste as you and start playing.

+win after grammatical corrections.

You might not be ready for playing stadiums or large clubs, but as long as you have friends who want to play, you're ready for a band.

Agreed. Just make sure not to perform until you are all comfotable with what you are playing. Don't rush someone to learn something they simply can't do yet.

This, I have a bunch of friends who were all not even 6 months into learning thier instruments and they started thier band with a cover of smells like teen spirit, it was terrible, but now they have an EP with 6 songs and it is actually quite good, they have only been a band for like months

I sort of started a band (we never did any shows & split after about a year), but it was about a month after I started playing bass, & I could barely play Blink 182 stuff, but now I'm in another band & we play fairly technical stuff
So you're always ready to be in a band
#11
i kinda feel like you just have to get in one.. your first band is probably gonna be the worst one hah.. you'll learn about playing with a group and how it's much different than solo.. that's how it was for me anyway..

just have to go do it

Try always to find someone better than you, so you can evolve.

if u get in a band now u will probably learn alot faster than if u were to stay playing alone

Now. You're always ready to be in a band. Best way to get better in my opinion.

When your on the same playing level as your bandmates.

Jamming with people is always good, no matter how good or ****ty you are, it's just a matter of finding people that are at the same skill level as you are, you guys will all push each other and progress better. Also, learning to play with other people is probably the most important thing about playing an instrument in my opinion.

i agree with this. you should be playing with others as soon as you can. its good to have people to bounce ideas off and have them show you some new things. dont be surprized though if some guitarists wont actually show you how to play that cool lick they just did. feel free to watch though and get ideas. im the opposite though. id show you if you asked...thats if i can remember what i just played as well lol.

i would say when your skilled enough in your playing to harness your creativity

I would say when you can play a song the whole way through and always be in time.

Definitely get into a band as soon as you can. People say that 1 hour practising in a band is worth 10 practising by yourself. If you can, try to get into a band with people who are better than you (I know, always hard to find, right? )
