looking around the web, i noticed someone needs to write a nifty article, like one on eHow, entitled: "How to Start a Jam Band". if anyone wants to attempt this artlicle (i think it should be funny) post it as a response to this post!

-love what you do, and respect everyone else

-no big heads in band that "have a vision" and its their way or now way

-practice practice more practice

-definitely smoke pot, or trip if your into synth, :-)

find people who play music just to play

not people who want to be in a band and get rich/famous

don't limit yourself to any style, play EVERYTHING and ANYTHING

when you think your song is done, add a couple solos

Hi,

there is already a new tool to find local musicians, its called Emuzikos. It's really easy to find musicians or bands you need without spending hours on forums.

Have a look at http://emuzikos.com
