Yeah, but no matter what,

My band, is better than yours,
damn right, it's better than yours,
I could teach you,
but I'd have to charge.

Sometimes, I hate the fact I remember annoying songs...

I was in a club in school and these guys were like" wow he's pretty good at guitar, he's better then the other guy we were going to get, so lets just get him instead" and thats how my band was formed.

become friends with the musicians/band kids. i'm sure some of them play alternate instruments such as the drums or guitar/bass.

The most important thing is to have a clear idea with what exactly you hope to accomplish with said band. Just lookin for somethin to do in your free time? want a career? hope to make it big? Just enjoy makin music? all these things factor into how well a band can form and stick together. Do a lil soul searchin, and once you have that part figured out, you just gotta advertise and hope some people out there feel like you do about makin a band.

This is also true. And since they're in the school band, it's guaranteed you won't get any theory n00bs, which is nice.

Draw up a poster that says looking for bandmates etc. but then put "Free Hat!" at the bottom of it.

Advertising is your friend.
Got a question about Baritone guitars? Feel free to PM me.

Thanks to UG, I converted from Metalcore to some "real" Metal.

- If you're still at school, just keep your ears alert around like your music area.
- Friends
- Friends of Friends

That's how I got mine together.

EDIT: just adding, go to your local music, listen to some people. If you like their playing, just ask if they wanna jam or whatever.
