Topic: Finally got a band started
I finally got a band started, which is a dream a year-and-a-half in the making. We have not decided on a name yet, but we are close. It consists of a drummer (the youngest of the group, me (second oldest) on lead/rhythm/bass guitar, and a lead singer (the oldest) on rhtyhm/lead/bass guitar (we agreed to switch bass between us). The drummer and I originally had been playing for a little bit, but neither of us are very good at singing and playing at the same time. Well I had known the singer for about a year, when he finally moved into the local area. When I asked him if he was interested in singing for us, he said that would be awesome. Now we are all decent at what we do, but our singer is the real talent in the band, you know Claudius for Coheed and Cambria, well, his voice has that kind of quality (and is in the same octave) , and he plays some complicated lead/rhtyhm stuff while singing. Our drummer is good at writing lyrics, and I am good at writing music for them, and the singer can come up with some awesome melody lines for them, so we already have our own songs (not bad for a band that has been together less than a month eh?). I's just wondering if anyone has had experience in a band? Just want to know how to handle practice, what type of places we can play gigs at that don't require you to be 21 (we are all underage).
