2 groups of my freinds have made bands and both want me to be in it, band 1) has 4 people guitar(me), singer, bass, drums and then band 2) will have lead guitar(me), guitar, bass, drummer and will find a singer later.

band 1) is more established and set up and the bass player is older and has been in a band that had a recording contract before, but the drummer and singer arnt that great.

band 2) the bass is fine fairly newbie, rhythm guitar complete newbie and drummer is very good.

i have been playing for 4 years and i am very serious about my band getting far

whats your thoughts?

There's only one way to decide.

I'm gonna have a really hard time if we're both cannibals and racists.

obviously first one. Contacts are EVERYTHING. You don't have to be particularly great at your instruments to be famous. I mean, I love 'em but look at AC/DC
#6
Have you tried swinging both ways, if you know what I mean?
So come on in

Option 1

They are good at their instruments, they're just repetitive.

Do both and if it'S too much just quit the one you enjoy less.
1. You're surfing the internet.
2. You're browsing through the UG forums.
3. You're reading now.
5. You didn't notice that there was no #4.
6. You just checked it.
7. Now you're having a lil smile.

What do you mean repetitive? They've only got one song.

I'd say the one with the singer, singers can get better, but anytime i've been in a band that was going to 'find a singer later', it's always ended up not happening. I'm sure Slash would tell you the same thing.

Also, could you not hook up with certain members, like the good drummer and the good bassist, etc., or are they very tight units?

the one with the singer.


the singer is the hardest member to come by and if you have a amateur guitars AND bassist, theres really no point in joining that band because its not going anywhere for a long time.

Stupid question, but what type of music do both bands play? do you both play the same or does one play one thing and then one play the other?

Edit: They both seem the same to me at the moment, but id say band 1 because they have more combined experience over all. Then again, Everyone has to start somewhere, if ya get me.

Join both bands for a bit. Stick to the one you like. How was that not obvious to you?

So the second has a good drummer, and nothing else going for them?

I'd go for the first. Unless their music is rubbish.
