I saw a recent post from @eric.kiser (I think in response to someone asking about ideas for finding other aspiring musicians to play with) And he listed a few of the past band related threads from our members. (myself included, I think starting back about 3 years ago)
Thought I would give an update:
Now that things are opening back up, I just started a 90s alternative band project this month. (same game plan as before: placed a Craigslist ad and found a few older folks willing to participate) Really surprised with the response this time around- had probably 5-6 vocalists, 3 or 4 guitarists and a couple of drummers interested. I think people (at least where I live) are ready to start getting back out again and doing stuff!
The drummer and guitarist have plenty of past experience- but the singer has never played with a band before. (and I am pretty basic on the bass but still having fun) We are trying out about 5 new songs at each rehearsal and hopefully will have maybe 10 or 15 decent tunes by the Fall and attempt to start playing out a bit.
Here is a sample from the first get together earlier this month. I just got a Fender Mustang and was able to use it for the first time at this rehearsal. (phone speaker is not the best reference audio… you probably need to listen with headphones in order to actually hear any noise I am making!) Although maybe its a good thing if I am hiding in the mix, haha!
