I've been playing bass for about 2 years now, guitar for about a year and a half. I'm not the best in the world by a long shot, but I am really really anxious to get a band going. This coming fall I am heading off to college and am hoping to join a band but I'm not sure how to go about it. I have a few major concerns. 1. How do I meet other musicians that might be interrested 2. I've never met another punk/ska/emo fan in maine, how much luck am I going to have finding 2 or more who play the right instruments* *I will play music beyond punk and ska and such, but those are really my strong points. I will not have a metal band, I don't think that's in anyone's best interrest. 3. My amp sucks. also, I really want to do some cover songs, but i don't think i'm going to find that many people who would be interrested in the songs I like. If anyone has ever been in such a position and knows how i might go about addressing my concerns, please post.
