Allright here's the deal. I've been playing my Essex BG-205 since June. I suck. A friend of mine (guitarist-Mark) wanted to start a band ever since I got my bass with his other friend who's also a guitarist,Peter. Peter seems to be a highly disorganized person who doesn't care about music,he missed dozens of jamming sessions without calling ahead and such...so we said screw him,we'll find another guitarist,since around here everyone single soul plays guitar. But with that aside we still need a drummer....and never had any luck finding one.I always thought as the drummer to be one of the most important people in the band...but Mark thought it was the vocals and there was no convincing him otherwise,regardless,we can't sign either.So we turned to the internet classifieds...and I mean I couldn't find a single drummer. I couldn't find ANY musicians close to our homes...but in the 100 mile radius we found another guitarist...and he had msn so without thinking I just added him. And today he's online and we started talking,he's a guitarist,sure he's far,but he can sing,he's been playing for 5 years,he's our age (16) and this friday he's meeting with a producer. He has a hookup downtown,where we can use a fully equipped studio (mixers,amps,drum sets,instruments,recording ourselves live) all for 15 bucks an hour,and split that by 4 and it's a sweet deal. He also has a few friends who play the drums. We talked on the phone for a little while and decided that we're gonna meet this Saturday...I told him that I've only been playing 4 months,and he said he'd be willing to give anyone a shot. Oh and he said he could do vocals in our band too. So hell I'm nervous...he seems like a great guy but I think I'll suck too much for him to like me. I've been playing 4 months,and like all I can play is Fur Elise by Beethoven,Iron Man by Ozzy,Nirvana Teen Spirit,EMinor Pentonic Scale,a song I wrote myself,and a few random riffs I wrote myself,and a song Mark wrote. He said his major influences were Skidrow,Iron Maiden & Creed so we'll get along really well... Anywho,you guys wouldn't happen to have some advice for good ol' Mikey now would ya?
