    This was probably done, before, but I didn't see it in the search.

    I just had to make this thread to brag.

    My band now practices in an airport hangar. It's SOOOOOOO cool. :D

    My band practices in my guitarist's living room. His roommate is in another band and we all practice there. It's kind of funny how the roommate can sleep through our practices.
     
  7. an airport hangar? that's pretty cool! :cool:

    my band practices in a room over a auto-workshop and next to the local union office and a Troll-fixing-thingy... :)

    so we have the key and access to that pretty much 24/7... and in the next room there's a kitchen! :D

    but since we went to different schools we're on hiatus and only play in holidays, and will next summer... :)
     
  8. my band practices at a rehearsal studio downtown. We used to jam at my house until my neighbour complained :rolleyes: but it's all good cos the studio is a sweet place to jam with great acoustics and a comfy lounge with FREE COFFEE! :D also, we can jam all night, so we usually go from 7 to 1 or 2 in the morning! Very cool! :cool:

    In my guitarists Garage. It's not glamerous but it's isolated, fairly sound proof, and because we have priority over the cars, spacious. So there you have it.

    I practice at the same place as The_Bass except when I play with people at my school. Then we usually don´t practice.

    when at home i practice in a spare room, when im rehearsing with the group we practice in some ritzy club house for some posh apartment complex. I get to get all sweaty and then go jump into this huge pool, with really pretty waterfall or the jacquzi. :D
     
  14. At a practice studio, the drummers parents usually pay for it *like $30 a session*, but its cool cause we dont have to set up mics or anything, and bacause it is not overly used, we can call in that day and get a spot. We occasionally practice at my drummers house too.

    On a side note, my drummer is by far the most intelligent member of the band. That bassist/songer *not me* is the least intelligent.

    the band i just joined and played with yesterday has access to a where-house (did i spell it like "where-wolf?" i just got the craziest visual in my head just now!)* that is used by some boyfriend of one of the band member's mom.

    we don't have to pay a damn thing!



    *imagine the first E as an O...:D

    it's kinda funny.

    they already had the whole band together, minus a bassist. they even have band shirts!:eek: :cool:

    (on the downside, the band's name is XeroHour*. that's right, zero is spelled with an "x."):rolleyes: :D

    brendan's playing would be so beautifully delicate it would have me bursting into tears, right? [insert winking smiley here] actually, i would probably puke...but it would be due to your super-low tunings pounded out of your eden rig (and 18" cab?).





    *don't get the wrong idea: we are a hard-rock band, not a metal band.

    Nope. 18" fell through...which means...sigh...the worst has happened. I need to get a job. But yeah, you may or may not feel some weakness in your knees when I start playing. :)
