You have correctly envisioned every fault to every bassist or drummer that I've met and tried to jam with. I'm into a whole bunch of music, while theirs is strictly Falling In Reverse and Sleeping With Sirens. Oh, and everyone brags about how they've seen so many bands and I'll be like "Oh, who?" and they'll say "Everyone at Van's Warped Tour 2011, lawlz it was awesumme".


Mhm, makes me want to go all Trent Reznor and do it all by myself.

I'm seriously at the verge of being done looking for people to be in a band with. Everyone's into the same type of shit. It would be easier to record everything myself and I'll probably end up doing so.

Band #3 (Current band): This band was sort of established when I joined, and they had a show booked for a little under a month away from the day I joined. I learned the songs decently, but definitely not well enough to play a show. Then the other guitarist of the band quit. So we got a fill in 10 days before the show. We thought we were completely prepared, we were going to win the battle of the bands and all that jazz since we sold all our tickets and we were "amazing". So, we play... It was the single worst performance that probably could have happened. Video here, skip to 1:50 for plot summary of the whole thing.

We proceeded to play more shows that were slightly better than that, but it never really got a lot better until we got a new drummer.


That was too good. Sorry that happened in your band, but seriously...someone from the audience picked up the cymbals!

Yeah... Hard to find people with similar variety of preferences and such.

There would be no chance i'd be able to convince some people into playing Ska-Punk, Folk-punk etc. And the ones that would wouldn't do the other stuff i'd like to try and so on.

I play folk inspired punk and love the sound of ska punk even though I don't listen to it that much anymore. I probably don't live anywhere near ya though.

Sorry for the shameless plug, but if you go to my bandcamp in my sig, the first song that ques up is some slow whiteboy reggae type stuff, and the rest is all folk inspired punky stuff. Free to listen to all the whole songs, no 30-sec preview crap. The song Thylacine in my link is an acoustic hyped-up folky song along the same lines. /Shameful, disgustingly commercial plug.

I can't really call them 'band' experiences, but until sometime in 2011 (when I joined my current band) every time me and my friends decided to start a *insert sub genre of metal we most into at that point* band it'd always end up in us just hanging out and playing games without picking up our instruments....the next day we'd be like '**** yeah I thought of this awesome idea for a song/band name/logo' as if what we'd accomplished the day before (Sweet feck all) had actually been productive and inspired us.

My band in high school pawned my drums for drug money. I legitimately believe one was a psychopath.

A lot of times, even though it may be hard to do, leaving a band is the best option. If a band doesn't click within the first couple months or so, it's probably not going to.


I agree. I've been jamming with one of my friends more recently and we actually wrote a song. After playing it, I could tell that we clicked. There was a feeling of excitement that we had created something good that I never felt with the other "band".

My last band was doing really good. Had an EP out that was well liked and people seemed to like our material at shows. But with the growing amount of poopy show (bad venues, playing with bands that didn't fit our genre etc) and my band mates were offered openings in other bands, we broke up.

I'm the only member of that band that still isn't in a new band. Feels bad man.

That's all I got. Still upset about it because we really had something going.

But if your band doesn't break up then it's not skramz.

All the hardcore kids have a band. They usually play Champs in Jersey or St. Pauls on Levittown Pkw.


The last time I played at Champs, the sound guy walked out on us mid set because he found a dead squirrel on the street or some retarded shit. Needless to say, I'm not too keen on going back there.


Aside from that, we just solved the problem of a guitarist that doesn't have any interest in being in a band whatsoever, and slowed our progress down as a result. As a matter of fact, in a half hour or so, we're having an audition so to speak with a possible replacement.

But seriously, I know nothing about writing music. I'm just started to get better at it. Have been doing a lot of lessons and stuff on here and various other websites to get better at theory and improv and all that stuff.

Well if you really want to actually give it a shot sometime in the future, I'll PM my number and what not. There is a decent enough back catalog of songs done you wouldn't need to really write if you aren't ready anyway.

We were thinking about covering Hair Trigger for fun as well.

I'll think about it in the future. To much stuff going on right now though. :/


I'm no where near the level to play Hair-Trigger at the moment though.

I was in one on and off for about a year a while back. There was something wrong with all of us.

Me - I was the typical egotistical lead guitarist. I would solo in-between songs and other shit like that. I have since become more humble (I'd like to believe I have anyways)
Drummer - Very talented, but started getting into drugs. I mean, we all smoked pot, but he started getting into hallucinogens, molly, etc.
Bassist - Quiet kid. His image didn't really fit us. We were playing 80's rock/metal and he was more emo. Often played out of key.
Rhythm Guitarist - WORSHIPED Dimebag. Had all the exact same equipment Dime used, or so he and his brother told me. Wasn't nearly experienced enough to play in a band and was insanely moody. We wouldn't have practice sometimes just because he didn't feel like it.

None of us knew any theory, we didn't write any songs and we never played a gig. We were going to do the battle of the bands at our high school. We even had the three songs picked out (Enter Sandman, Caught In A Mosh, Symphony of Destruction) and practiced them at least once a week.

One week before the show, however, the Rhythm guitarist decides we're going to do a totally different second song (Cemetery Gates) and that he was going to do the solos. The drummer, for whatever reason, had his back. I, seeing that there was no way we could perfect the song in a month let alone a week, just left.

That describes me perfectly in the band I was in

What the hell was he doing on the street during a set? Too funny though

The first band I was ever in, I sang and played lead guitar and then the "drummer" (who couldn't really drum for shit) decided he wanted to stop drumming and be the singer. I quit straight after coz I wasn't going to go through any band drama. I heard they got another singer (the drummer still had to resort to learning to play drums lol) and broke up soon after
I'm not saying not to trust the internet, but there's an alarming discrepancy between the number of iPads I've won & the number of iPads I own.
