Okay.

So this freshman girl came to the United States from China when she was 12 or something. Dunno much more than that. I know this other freshman girl because we were both on the same bus. (we both live in the country) She doesn't really play guitar very well. The chinese girl wanted to start a band, cuz i guess she's decent at guitar. I'm a junior. I can keep a beat on drums, play the bass decent, but mostly play piano.

So I got into this band with 2 freshman girls.

We had one practice awhile back, and I mean we kind of sucked, but not too bad, the main problem was that there wasn't anything to play.

Today was supposed to be the 2nd practice, so I was going to go... but when I drove there, I kind of didn't want to go, cuz it'd be awkward. So I just went home. And I find out later that the other girl didn't go either.

What does this mean?
and do you know anywhere I can get some music to play/whats a good song for a chinese girl on guitar and me on bass?

Why did we need to know that the guitarist is chinese? Will that affect the answers we give you?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I just don't get why we needed to know she was chinese, just don't be in the band if u don't like it or if it's gonna fail, if ur band sounds bad or ur band members don't show up, then yes it fails.
#8

You should suggest covering 'Turning Japanese' by the Vapors, then claim you 'can't tell the difference'.

practice regularly, gig, record.

i've played with loads of people for a song or two, but it doesn't mean i'm in a band with them.

I guess I should ask myself a question..why am I asking the Pit how to start a band?..
#21
You didn't go to band practice because you thought it would be awkward? Why the **** are you in the band in the first place then?

I dunno I've never been in a band myself, I guess the chamber of commerce or some sort of bureau where you can register your band name as a brand

The fact that the threadstarter said the girl was Chinese would imply that she is from China and not Japan.

I think that's right? Hmmm, i'm pretty sure it is. Could be wrong though.

You're in a band with two freshman girls, and you didn't turn up?!

Problems here:

1.You should have gone. Possible scoring opportunity is possible.
2. See point 1.
3. Your band has even phailed at beginning. Give up.

Seriously man, you didn't go because it would be awkward? life's too short to miss things because they're "awkward".

Just have a tiny amount a courage at least, and tell yourself and the two freshman girls (one of whom happens to be Chinese..why we needed to know that is unknown) to get your **** together.

Good luck.

well i'll try to answer this thread since everybody keeps being unserios...
If there's one thing I have experience of it is failed bands, I myself is a pretty good guitar player and have a number of bands and attempts of bands behind me. Most of them not any great succes but my latest actually went pretty good but I moved away from that town which led to the unraveling of that band.

But in my opinion the most important thing for a band is that everyone at least can stand out with each other, after all it's about having fun and playing rock n' roll (music) together=)

Good ways to start that I recommend is really easy songs.
No i'n serious REALLY easy!!! like three note songs like Spain (swedish classic first or only song on any instrument song) or something like that and make sure that you get it down perfectly. Completely PERFECT rythmically and harmonically, then when you can do that try making that ol' booring song awesome. Add a solo, duplicate the riffs creating a completely new version of the song, your version!

Then start playing real songs but still keep it simple at first, like punk or something, simple straight beat then simple chord progressions and so on.
You asked for good songs for starters i'd recommend:
"Hit Me" - The Sounds
"Seven nation army" - White Stripes
"Holiday" - Green Day

Most important to make it work is that you develop a style that everyone in the band is comfortable with and they have fun while playing even though this might mean that you'll have to alter any songs you're playing very much.

Plus if you have that kind of motivation within the band that peolpe decide not to go to practise for no reason YOU ARE FAILING!
