you need to put yourself out there more and be a solo act, and go to events and meet musicians

Laid-to-waste's advice + don't try to specify your sound too much until you get to jam with prospective joiners, or it'll turn them off.

I've seen quite a few guys just go to local shows in the genre a bunch and just being friendly with everyone, usually find out about bands who need someone or end up starting something new with some people. network and shit.

if you're really good you can do the solo act thing and people might jump on board eventually, I know a few guys who are very good guitar players but just started with a drum track on an ipod and impressed enough that people would want to jam with them.

I thought rubber bands were just extruded tubes that are then sliced.

Best way to do it is to go to shows and get to know people in the band. There's always other musicians at shows.

Go to guitar shops and practice pentatonic scales really loud until you get discovered.
