Go to local music stores (Guitar Center, Sam Ash, etc...) and see if they have a bulletin board. Years ago I found a decent singer that way. Colleges might be good places to post something too.

Every time I've been to music stores like that I've seen some god awful adds like "influences similar to KISS, Dimmu Borgir, Stone Sour, and Guns N' Roses" lolol or something similar of that sort. My college doesn't have bulletin boards or anything like that, to be fair my college is pretty diverse but the ghetto of it outweighs that part haha

That sucks. You could also try hanging out at clubs where local bands play. Are you wanting to form a band as a hobby, or are you hoping to make a career out of it? If you're just wanting to play music for fun and aren't looking to tour or anything like that, you could talk to members of other bands and see if they want to play in your band as well... or they probably know other musicians that might be looking to join a band.

It's really either/or honestly, as long as it's something that sounds worth wasting time on. One of my friends in like 2 bands and makes his own music, it would be really ideal for him and I to just play together but it never works out and I'm not going to wait forever lol I know of a lot of guys from the scene they play in and most of them don't live even close to me nor do we like similar types of music. On top of that most people don't want to help others anymore because of their ill-thought out preconceived notions. Our local scene is pretty much garbage, there's barely anything decent coming out unless it's in conceited elitist Williamsburg sadly.

I don't really know what to tell you. If there are local bands that are playing the type of music you want to play, then go to their shows, talk to their fans, friends, band members, crew, etc....

Well... good luck... If you just want to play, you could try finding other musicians online (maybe even this board) who would want to record parts and email them back and forth and put them all together digitally. Obviously it would be difficult to jam or do live gigs, but it could still be fun

LOL I don't know where I would even look? and yeah I'd prefer a more personal thing for sure

yeah... I'm kinda grasping at straws, but it could be fun... different than playing with other people live for sure, but it could be interesting
