    Had my 2 younger brothers play guitar & drums when we all lived in Seattle.
    It was really cool at times & others, not so much. Great experience over all.
    Now one lives in Connecticut, but we still do long distance recording projects.

    I sometimes play with my brother who's been playing guitar for 7+ years. Good learning experiences. I just don't know, though. I think our brotherly "tiffs" would get too much in the way of a real band experience.:meh:
  6. I play drums in a two piece with my brother. Works out really well. I really think that knowing each other all our lives helps us write better and faster.

    There is not another person in my family that has any musical talent so I would not be interested being in a band with them. If they had talent, I'm still not too sure I would be into it. We are close but my siblings fight like crazy over everything and nothing at the same time and I don;t need that.

    I'd have to be open to the idea of being in the same room as a member of my family for any length of time first...I wouldn't mind jamming with my sister but she hasn't got the patience to learn guitar properly, so she's rubbish.

    No. I am the only member of my family that plays music. The rest have a hard time tuning a radio, let alone a g**tar...

    My brother has been in four of the bands I've been in since 1977, and is in my current band. He plays rhythm guitar and sings lead vocals.

    I've been in a couple of bands where my sister sang lead vocals and she's always been the most professional musician that I've ever worked with. Also played with my little brother who played guitar and although we didn't always get along, when it came time to play, we always played extremely well together. He was a guitar player that understood that seemingly "lost art" of actual rhythm guitar. Not only did he play very rhythmically when he soloed, but he knew a lot of chord voicings, had excellent groove and always played in a pocket that nobody else was in and we just had that sibling telepathic groove going. It was pretty amazing. He's not with us anymore and I miss him and really miss playing with him for many reasons...
  13. Same here. I would say I'm moderately talented, but my brother, hoo boy, you should see him try to snap his fingers in time to a song:eek: Not a pretty picture.
  14. Sure... I'd love to be on the same stage with either one of my teen sons. One plays sax, and the other.. electric guitar. so yes, definitely would consider it.

    sure! though... my brother's an operatic tenor, i'm a rock/groove/noize bassist, and my other brother's a laptop DJ. it would be... interesting, to say the least.

    My brother is an awesome drummer. He got the lions share of talent in the family. We used to play together for years, but somehow went our separate ways. He still sits in with my current band from time to time.
