Well the title is self explanatory...Me and my band were practicing today and my neightbor complained... has anyone had any similar experiences? and if so what did your band do about it? Like so far my friends and band mates have narrowed it down to Connecting to a Small Mixing board and feeding off it with headphones. and someone even said to practice at a public storage area not sure if thats even possible :/ all i know i felt like shet after that old man told us to turn it off i dont wanna stop playing im willing to play softer with the band but im pretty sure he'll be back and in for the kill.

please help anything will do any suggestions. rumors. anything thnx.

buy electric drums and do silent session jams via headphone mixers. I do metal and it works fine. its always nicer to have loud amps going.. but in some cases.. like yours and mine.. its simply not an option.

some cheaper headphone mixers run about $40 or so.. they clip when they get loud tho.. so i'd suggest getting a higher quality one.

i'm using a lower quality one by Apex called an AHA-4. it does the job for now.

find like a parking lot or something with acess to a wall outlet...

or find a random building with an outlet and setup out back!
Not the way I play guitar hero. I 5 stared free bird on the first try! Ima be a rock star..... as soon as my parents buy me a guitar.

the band I'm in uses a storage. if you're a punk band, it's great for recording demos. gets a nice sound. use a mic and a laptop and you got newschool DIY.

Yeah, I used to sing for my band, well, scream. The guy came from across the street and banged on the garage door, so I opened it with the garage opener, told the guys to keep playing, screamed "Get the fuck off my property!" and whipped the mic at him.

Community service is fucking gay.

Not too much they can do about it if you're jamming during the day. Most people are off at work anyways. You're in an enclosed space, and I assume you have your parents' consent to jam there, so tell the guy to screw off.

Tell them to piss off and suck on your balls. Asking a band to stop playing so loudly is just asking for ridicule and an increase in volume.

The most peculiar thing ever: My most recent band played street punk, and we had a screaming vocalist. After our first practice, the 90-year-old next door neighbor called us over to the fence and told us we were good, especially the singer!

once i ripped sh*t at 8 oclock in the morning, and because it was in the garage is was extreme to the nth degree. so much so that the neighbour thought she'd greet me with a morning "shut the f*ck up" notice
#20
One time my band..when we first started out.
A woman came over to our garage, threatening to shove the drummers drumsticks up his arse...and throws the guitars at the walls.

We laughed and played more. Just ignore the bitches, eventually they'll get use to it. And if they call the police, your doing nothing wrong, your obeying the law (unless your playing very loud past 11pm). Your doing nothing wrong, WOOT more music please.

So keep on playing!

TS, try sound proofing your practice area, carpet does wonders.

If he still complains throw a ridiculously massive spear through his gut and watch his organs fall to the ground in a hilarious cartoon fashion.

REBELL!! THATS WHAT METAL IS ALL ABOUT!!!

+if he's making you guys miserable, make his fuking life miserable! & another suggestion for revenge would be every party or whatever he has ring the cops & file a noise complant, the next morning tell him it was you! & he'll never be able to host another party again if he complains about the noise again! (works wonders! thats asuming he's not 'freaky old' and actually has partys or for that matter FRIENDS!!

Dude I got these strings the other day that couldn't be tuned to higher than 4 octaves below middle C then I realized that they were shoelaces and they weren't making any sound at all.

If they ask you to turn it down, turn it up and play more than usual until they move away.
#29
Damn...make your room soundproof,I did this and no one tell me shut the f#$@ up!
You know some people hate electric guitar sound.
