    Anybody out there know of a good place to find a band to join? Can't seem to find anyone around here.
  2. Band are usually pretty easy to find for bassists, just check for advertisments on the windows at all the music stores. Also put the word out to anyone you speak to. Eventually someone will know someone who knows someone etc. who wants to start a band. Also check out any local music publications, they often have a musicians wanted section.
    You could put your own advertisement in a music store window, just say you are a bassist looking to join a band, or advertise for other musicians to form a band.

    I dont know exactly where Ottawa Kansas is, but if your near a larger city, i'm sure you have musicians forums that advertise for band members. Try searching for for a website devoted to local music and see if they have a forum section.

    And if you find one, as a bass player, you wont have any trouble finding a band. Because i'm a fairly new player, I posted an ad saying beginner looking for other amatures to jam with for fun. And I told them up front i'm just a newbie, but I still received almost a dozen replies in less than two days.

    If you can play at all, you'll have no trouble finding a band.

    Good luck

    Scroll down a bit and look to the left. Look in Musicians Classifieds or something like that. You can enter your zip code and see if any people need someone for their band.

    You people are lucky -- there ain't sh*t for musicians around me. Everyone wants to be in a heavy metal cover band.
