if your starting a band you should focus on your favorite style, and if it is ska if your a decent musician you should know most of the styles and ways of doing stuff in that music,

Hmmm... When asking a serious question on UG, shall I take it to the section of the boards where people know what they're talking about, or shall I take it to the section of the boards where the only thing that can keep the average user's attention for more than five seconds is the discussion of penises, boobs or vaginas?

Yep, definitely The Pit.

It's not like we're trying to be douchebags or anything. If you consistently out threads in the wrong forum, it can not only be annoying, but the mods will either just move your threads or just close them and tell you the same things we're telling you.

Just calm down, dude. Like I said, it's not out of hostility, we're just trying to help.
