Yeah, I was watching the film about half an hour ago and it was at the end of course. Everytime I see this movie I just get chills down my spine thinking about being in a band. I've been playing guitar for almost 7 years and have had like 0 band experience. All I have are solo recordings of ****ty quality songs on my computer that I've made. I live in a nowhere town and it just bugs me so much and I can't even describe the sensation I get when thinking about fronting a band and just having everything sounding so fantastic and all as one. Anyone else get this feeling or am I just insane?

No man. You're not insane.
I live in India.
Thankfully in Mumbai where there are ALOT more guitarists and guitars.

It's a major pain in the rectum just to find a bassist/drummer because decent equipment etc is expensive.
And the one drummer I know thinks Green Day is satanic because of Bullet in a bible.
Retarded isn't he ?

Being on stage is orgasmic.

i suppose there's a chance
i'm just a litte too shallow to consider
that maybe i've been a little more eager
each day to wake up and take a shower
brush my teeth and smile for the mirror

Solo projects are ok, you just need to get out and play publicly more.
Why should I come down?
From here, I can see forever.

Of course there had to be one dick...

But yeah I was watching it on TBS lol. Watching Orange County right now and just realized that it has one of the best soundtracks ever. The Offspring, Cake, Social Distortion, etc.?? Insanely good.

I'm off to Ohio State University in September. Do you think theres a good chance I may be able to form something there? Or will everyone be too distracted?

I saw it too. TBS? Lol.

Anyways, I'm in a band, but we're not really going anywhere. Like. We try to write and play actual songs, but we always end up just jamming over a random riff. I mean, it's fun and great, but...It's missing something. Not so much the stage, or money, but rather...Just the recognition and entertaining other people with something you came up with. Making good music is like inventing something as revolutionary as the microwave.

You will be surrounded by musicians. You shouldn't have much of a problem finding the right people to play with.

I live in a tiny hell hole of a town... And after about 2 years of trying I finally have a full band.. And we will hopefully be playing in a few months.

You just think there aren't any, you have to really look for them, I looked for band mates for a year too thinking there were none in my town, you just have to know where they are, ask everyone you know to ask everyone they know to ask everyone they know to ask.. Look for places that have rehearsal studios, there are tons of musicians there obviously, bars, guitar stores, even cd stores will work, place adds on forums, flyers, .. And yes the feeling is the best thing I've ever experienced, when you play a song that you all wrote together and it's just perfect.

Yeah the only problem with looking in any bars, guitar stores, studios, etc. is that there aren't any around here lol. The biggest thing here in Wal-Mart or Mcdonalds. The nearest real city is like 2 hours away

When I went to Chicago, one of the McDonald's there had a stage outside and featured jazz bands on Sundays.
