I'm going into high school next year. I'm wanting to start a band. I influence

The Buzzcocks
Nirvana
GnR
The Clash
Bromhead Jackets
Arctic Monkeys


How could I advertise. I am a guitarist, and through the summer I'm writing material. How could I get a drummer, bassist, and a singer? Ways of advertising?
#2
making friends, talking about music, asking around who plays an instrument, get friends to learn to play, etc etc etc

Stick mini posters around the place, meet new people who could be into getting a band together, you know, basicly do something.

Dude, if you've influenced all those bands, people should be lining up to play with you.

It's always much more fun to play with friends or people you know. if you just pick any person who can play and it turns out that they are a dick then things are going to suck!

Go to the music dept. talk to some of the people there, or people in your classes who appear to have similar tastes in music as you, especially if they play an instrument etc etc... Also in my school, in english class we had to do a presentation kinda thing to the class, if you have to do that, tell people you ar einternetsed in music and want to form a band...

GOOD LUCK!

That's one of the few times i've seen that meme really work.

Also, take music classes. Theory, Jazz, and history if they have them.

You influenced Nirvana and GnR? Goddamn those are serious accomplishments.

****, you're pretty young to be on this forum. Also, you're pretty young to start a band, tbh. There won't be many good musicians who play non-classical music at your age. Give it till about 14, then start one. And you'll know/find out who plays what instruments in your year, so you can just ask them.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.
