Hello,
I am to the point in my guitar playing where I really want to start playing with other like minded musicians. I live near Wichita, KS, and am looking at least for someone who plays bass, and someone who plays drums. I have written a few songs, and want to start jamming with others. Does anyone know of a good way to find someone in my area? Any suggestions wouuld be appreciated.
thanks

You should probably check out this part of the forum.

Not sure about your area, but around here some of the smaller newspapers run musician's ads where you can get a small ad proclaiming your need of a particular kind of musician and give some details.

I wasn't tapped into them for a long time, since around here they seem only to run in the city newspapers, which not as many people read. I've called on a couple of those ads, got a couple telephone only interviews, and joined a really awesome band for a while.

Do something you love and you'll never work a day in your life...

it depend on your area but a sundercat said, advertise it in the local newspaper. However, if not many people read it. Do what Im gonna do soon. Just print out a flyer that says "looking for a ________ in a _______ band call...etc" and set a date like 3 weeks later where you invite anyone interested to come to the place to audition or whatever.

I found a band that was looking for a guitarist on the internet. In Chicago obviously there would be a larger pool but I think if you look take a look at musicianforum.com and do searches with keywords like "band forming or "guitarist wanted/available", Wichita, KS" you might find someone to jam with.

Hope that helps.
