Sorry to hear it.

You'll find some other people, ask around.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.

Post up flyers or something. Are there any music stores in your area? If there are, just ask if you can put up a poster or something.

Oh yeah *holds hand up for hi-5*
"You're a twat!"- That dude in morrisons

"You Ugly git!" - That girl in the restaurant

"You Were a Mistake!" - Mum

just a few of my fans..

Assuming you're the guitarist...

Keep gaining skill, lots of it. Eventually along your life someone will see how good you are and want to collaborate with you, or vice versa. Or just go solo if you can sing (or even if you can't).
Nope. None at all.

When life knocks you down, get back up, wipe the dust from your clothes, and kick it in the balls.


I don't know how that will help, I just thought it sounded cool in this context.
Dear God, do you actually answer prayers?

Yes, but only in a way indistinguishable from random luck or the result of your own efforts.

Quote by Buffalo Phil
No, they said because they are either

A) Not serious
B) Not 'good enough'

If they're not good enough, tell them they are...

And if they are going on about being serious, rape them, their sisters, and their mothers. They joined my band after I did it.

Either of those could be an excuse for leaving cause you suck.

Were you like, the main person in the band? Did you write most of the music?

Quote by I_Am_Iron_Man
Maybe they quit because you suck?

Yeah, whole bands fall apart because of one member's skills.

Hey, that guy doesn't play exactly up to par as us, lets all quit in unison instead of helping them out because that solves EVERYTHING! Hell, because if I can't have a great band no one can! AMIRITE?! WHO'S WITH ME!?

Sadly I know exactly how you feel...
#31
To be honest, if you wrote it all, you're probably better off without them.

Look out for stuff at youth centres, and advertise your looking for members at schools/colleges/music shops.

Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best...
And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...


Don't know how that will help.. but it always cheers me up

Plus I bet you will find other people to jam and/or write songs with eventually.
I can't afford a signature
#34
By "they all quit" do you mean that they all went their separate ways or have they all quite and then all gone into another band.... If it is case two I think you just got fired...

But yeah, sucks. My band hasn't be able to play as much lately and it isn't cool.
#35
pick up and find some other guys that will be serious. its hard to do i know, my bands only a trio, but we get by we just have various friends come in to be our 4th member for maybe 1 gig.

Its fun

Leave us a comment, we'll get back to you =]

u don't neccisarily need a band to make music......u can learn instruments or hire guys and do recordings. What you can do is write songs. And then look for guys at UG to fill in like session musicians. So write a song, then request some one to lay the drums, then bass, et al. You'll have recordings like that. Look at KT Tunstall....she performs all alone. Check her out http://professio.blogspot.com
