okay so me and my friends are musicians. metal musicians to be specific. we have been making music for over a year together but are going nowere without a backbone. there are NO drummers we know in town that like the metal we like (black, death, folk, whatever). what are some advertising techniques that you guys have used to find musicians for specific genres? all the drummers here play gay ass screamo **** and are in bands already because people are desparate and that **** is easy to play on drums
#2
Ya drummers are hard to come by, i know. I'd say look/post on craigslist in your town and surrounding area, and Guitar Center usually has a little board for Musician Ads where you can put up a little flyer.

Bandleading forum nigga, check it out... also that's where this thread should go.

I was implying(Or rather, TS did) that drummers aren't musicians.

Make a drummer.
Really, it may take some time for him/her to catch up, but its a lot easier then finding one, and it can be one of your friends, if you think they can handle it and such.

Your idea of screamo probably isn't right. You probably don't know much about screamo, cuz you probably don't like, since you called it gay ass...

You're probably thinking of harcore or metalcore. In which case, I'm sure you would be able to find a suitable drummer.

So you can criticize musical genres, but others cannot?

You seem to have set a double standard...

A standard I shall not stand for!

Same dilemma here. We're good, too. But there's no drummers. There's this one good punk drummer who would be perfect, but he's thirty years old and has no desire to play with our ****ty little teenage punk band. Best resort: Get a drum machine.

In my honest opinion, I think that you, TS, should maybe have stated your predicament in such a fashion that was less critical to said genre of music. "Gay ass" is not particularly a nice way to get your point across, ergo, people probably aren't helping you as much as they could. Also, you posted in the Pit. If I were you, I would have posted in the Musician's Forum, they have a specific board for advertising, i.e. looking for drummer (insert area here). But really, drummers (I've found, or rather havent), are difficult to come by these days.

On a helping note, flyers. Stick flyers everywhere. Even in hardware stores, little shops, that kind of thing.

Good luck, and good day to you sir.

No, this is the pit. What is a musician? They all were raped back in 'Nam.


edit: No one's helping you because you defamed an entire genre of music purely based on personal opinion. What if I don't like death/folk metal? Does that mean it's gay ass? Absolutely not. Grow up.
Do NOT look behind you.

I'm a drummer!

Idk, but it gets annoying running into people who only know how to "blast beat" or ridiculously use double bass...especially when they don't have any idea that there is more to drumming then just playing fast.

You might want one with a little variety...
Oh f*ck it,

+1 to dawginator..

I would definitely just say that you're looking for a metal drummer; if the drummer was into screamo stuff, and is decent, it shouldn't be that hard to get them to do what you're playing, but be nice about it man

I'm 15 and in a band that just lost a drummer, and finding one's tough. We found one that lives 50 minutes away that is apparently good that we're trying out tomorrow..


Good luck dude

This too.

See what I mean? Keep your mind open, just make a bit more effort and try and find someone that is open to playing new stuff.

yeah iv been using drum machines the whole time weve been working together. also i split an 18 pack with my guitarist so im just being honest with you guys. i dont like screamo ****. i just dont. nothing will change that. iv already passed through that phase yu know? quit being judgemental people. i love metal and if im gunna be in a band id prefer playing it. people are all different and we all mustaccept that
#37
I don't want to sound as though i am flaming you as thats not really my thing (you know what they say about internet arguments and special olympics...), but *good* drummers are hard enough to come by at the moment without segregating what genre they play, true, some drummers will find it difficult to play in a band that is the polar opposite of what they are strong in, but this "screamo gay ass ****" is not a million miles apart from your tr00 metal, plus, you should be looking for an original drummer, not Lars Ulrich so that you can make make a band that sounds almost exactly like Metallica, but with everything is tuned down a step.

TL;DR-Open your mind, ts.

How about get out of our forum?

You're an August 09er, therefore you've been here for a week at most.


If you don't like it, then leave. You have no right to tell us to leave your thread.

drummers usually hang around real musicians so any studio should have some kicking about-

another good way is to order pizza. 99.9% of drummers are pizza delivery boys.
