I was just wondering, how many of us UG'ers are in bands, and how many just play with themselves (no pun intended) or with a friend occasionally.

i am in a band (myspace link is in my sig )

I snapped my high E once and sliced my finger open, so I can only assume snapping the low E would put me into a coma or something.

What is this 'UG' you speak of?


Recreational, but I hope to join a band someday.
Did you know the odds of a Vault-Tec shelter failing are 1,763,497 to 1?

So imagine life in a Vault-Tec Vault. Not just a future.
A brighter future... underground.

Same. We already have me, my other guitarist friend, and my bassist friend lined up, but our drummer friend is kind of reluctant to get in on it.

I'm just a recreational player right now. I've always wanted a band though, just to see what it's like. I don't plan on trying to make a career out of it though, considering how competitive it is.

make sure you know rhythm and melodies too. no band without that is worth listening to. solos arnt as important as you think.... well depending on style of music.

Recreational.

I can't handle being in a band right now, I need to get a job and school, it would be too much for me. However, I would love to play rhythm and/or sing in a band sometime.

I play by myself. I just like playing guitar. If anyone asks me to join a band, then sure. But for now, I enjoy being solo.
