My brother and i have been trying to find a place to practice for a few months now. we live in apartments. he has an electric drum set so we still get to play, but at low volumes(nothing beats a cranked guitar amp and exploding cymbals). we've tried renting storage units but we've pretty much got straight across no's from everyone. any suggestions?

sorry if there is a different forum category for this type of question.

Find a musical friend who has a house.

Or soundproof you're apartment.

I practice at my friend's. And at my house.

well, I don't have this problem personally, but I know a band that rents out an old gigging place(can't remember what its called). You're aloud to practice as loud as you wan't and its pretty sweet.

dude that sounds awesome.

as for me i just practice at home, or friends houses, my neighbors arent sound nazis, so i can play drums and guitar as loud as i want, althought it is a house not an apartment, hell sometimes i practice at school, take my acoustic, play for friends or anyone who will listen, its pretty fun.

so TS, find a bass player or another guitarist who has a good place to practice, or rent a practice space.
