Pit i need your help once again. I am trying to form a band for about forever now. I already have two guitars ( one is me of course), a bass, and a singer. But there seems to be a sereious lack of drummers where i live. The ones that are here, already ahve bands, and the only one i found that doesnt have one is a stupid ass, who didnt even bother to show so we could talk whn and where we would practice. I posted ads on some forums, but as till now, there was still no reply.
So pit, how can i get a drummer, or how can i motivate one of my friends to start playing drums? Bying a new drum set is pa pretty big investment, and to top it off, all but one of my friends play guitar. Also, advice on how to steal a drummer from another group would be apreciated.

1. Sell friends guitar.

2. Buy drumset with cash.

3. Hypnotize friend into wanting to learn drums.

4. ????

5. PROFIT

Steal a baby and train it for the sole purpose of playing drums ONLY good enough so it doesn't steal the spotlight

Start recording some originals with a drum machine or something like it. Then, put up flyers, want ads, have tryouts, or maybe you could find some1 who likes the songs you guys have, and will drum for you.

Do you have like, a school band with percussionists? That's where a lot of the drummers at my school are obtained.

i got the smae god dam poblem, except my drummer lives about 50 miles away and only shows up every two weeks or so

A. dont make such a misleading title for your forum post... instead of NO DRUMMERS put CANT FIND DRUMMER unless you feel like destroying the hopes of the bassists, guitarists, and vocalists that come in.

B. Drum Machine only works for a NIN cover band or if your singer is Beck

C. you know you COULD take up drums... just saying... its fun and knowing more than one instrument makes you MUCH more well rounded.

I dont really want a drum machine, because then i wont be able to blame the drumer for all my screw-ups. I have actualy considered taking up drums, and even play it every time i am at my friends place (they have a band and a drummer) But i just cant get as excited when playing the drums, doesnt feel as good as my guitar in my hads.

Get a bunch of bass drum pedals.
Buy drum set.
Set up each drum with a bass drum pedal (may replace pedal mallet with stick).
Play.
Or, get your singer to play drums, too.

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.

Start a string band. All the cool kids are doing it.
