    i have tried out for five bands in my area and none of them have taken me, some of them didnt even wanna hear what im all about. whats tha dal with that?
    ill tell you what i do and u tell me whats wrong with my poor self.
    Im 16 years old i got my first bass when i was 14 so i have only got 2 years experience but i love that son of a gun bass so i play it non stop. i am in the jazz band and the varsity chior band from my high school. i cant read sheet music too ez but i can if i try for a while, but it hasnt really been a big deal since i can just listen to the licks on a cd/tape and hear how everything fits together. i can play any style of music i feel like, but my fav is funk/rock mixed with some stuff i just make up.
    PLZ TELL ME WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME!!!!!!
    y CANT I GET IN THE DARN BANDS????

    Ok, to start with, this is in the wrong forum.

    And to answer your question:

    This is why no one wants you in their band. This is a horrible attitude. No one wants someone who thinks they're that much of a "badass" in their band, although I'm sure I'd change my mind once I hear your "badass slap solo" though.

    well, for starters, something like this would be better served in miscellaneous. the basses forum is for questions related to specific bass guitars.

    secondarily, if you are really serious about finding out what your shortcomings are and what you can do to make yourself better, i would suggest finding a good teacher.

    There's a thread over in Off Topic called 'Image Macros..." with that and some other funny ones Dave Castello and the other Photoshop users made. They've turned out to be very useful so far.

    Great.

    Another dead racoon.

    If you can't get in a band, why don't you start a band?

    This is simple. You can't spell, you can't punctuate, and you can't speak proper English. Why on earth WOULD anyone want you in their band?
     
  13. Well, i can see you havn't started school yet.


    (YES! before the lock!)

    What's this kid talking about? His profile shows he's currently in four major label rock acts. Why is he concerned with a local band?;)

    But really...You should just start your own band.
