I think what you're looking for is people just to jam with. Cuz you're really not going to get technically better by playing in a band. Unless you find a band that has another guitarist who's better than you, but u learning technique at a band practise will piss of the other band members.

Good for you Zack, start a garage band and have a great time. Ask around your school, you might find some band mates there.

Thanks Dwager, finally someone nice. Thing is tho i can't find anyone. everyone i know likes rap music and stuff, or likes rock and dosn't play anything. Thats why i'v been searching here. Its not a matter of getting more technique but just the feeling of of playing a song not by yourself but in harmony with other band members is just such a good feeling, and i used to have a guy here who i was friends with, SICK Drummer but he moved, so u see i can't go to anyone in my school. i Just wanna be in a acoustic band.

Cuz I will hunt you down...
You know very well that you can't bothered to hunt anyone or anything. It will take time away from being on the net, buying and playing new gear.

Sorry , I don't want to start a band with you . I live about 600 miles away , so it would get annoying to come to band practice :tongue:

Seriously though , find people at your school...Yeah , starting a band when starting to play an instrument in pretty hard . I had to do everything the hard way : found two other friends , got a rehearsal space , asked around for people to play with us even though we sucked and people didn't want to , made fool of ourselve at our first gig , etc... But that's the funnest thing I ever did . I still play in that band( with a few lineup changes) , and we're even beginning to get recognition in our town . And I started playing at 18 , so you still have the time .

Good luck young man :food-smiley-004:

try putting an ad in your community newspaper, put ads up in the local music stores too.

I too started in my first band at 14. Back then it was pretty hard to find any guitar player, so if you could play at all you could get in somewhere. Even as the rhythm guitar player, you learn really, really fast when you have to play in front of people. Pressure is good.
