I'm 15, nearly 16. ive been in a number of bands, playing a few different genres of music. I joined the first one, and ive started about 4. right now im not in any bands. i dont want to start/contribute to a serious band until im 17 or so with serious musicians. I figure i can just join some cruddy "punk" bands or something, and i will get my first gig, get gigging experience, other good stuff like that without the pressure of really carring about the band. By the way, i play guitar. Is this a good idea? just joining a band to stay on top of playing with people, to learn about gigging? or should i start a serious band?
I say both, Getting gigging is always good, especially if you're going to lead another band. The search for serious musicians can take a while, so do both at once.
if you REALLY dont want to start a serous band ( i dont know why you wouldnt, its never too early) the yes, thats a good way to go about it, als pracice constantly so you will be a machne when you find the musicians
i play in a band and we write songs but we cant play anywhere except school cause were only 14 what age do you have be to gig
no set age really, but it depends on the venue. And as for joining not so serious bands untill you can get experience, thats a good idea, but start loking for seious musicians now, because that can take forever, ive been trying to get a band together thats willing to tour and whatnot for over a year now.
