im looking to move away from Rocksmith and play with real people. Nothing serious, just throw back a couple beers after a hard day of work and rock out.

 

thing is, I don't know anybody where I live now.

 

Can I get some pointers on how to start a band when you don't really have friends (this sounds more dramatic than it is really)

 

I'm thinking maybe put up some flyers at local music shops, will that work or am I wasting my time?

 

any answer is appreciated

Does anyone in Poland advertise on "Join my Band" (or similar web sites)?  It's not ideal - it's like internet dating for band members, but I have managed to join a band through it, and have had a couple of interesting experiences along the way...  :wacko:


All about the bass, no treble...

I used a band finding website, for my country. You can try posting flyers if you have a local music shop, I know there a lots of flyers in mine. Otherwise, I have no other idea  :D I was in a band for a while but it didn't really work out, so since I can't find anyone else wanting to play what I want, I just do everything myself. It's tough and time-consuming, but it pays off in the end.
