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.

Quality cannot be defined. Recognize that it exists and admire it for what it is.

TRy this site just use the drop downs to select your state and city and what you're looking for and it will bring up a list of people in your area, all free of charge

Immature? Of course I'm immature Einstein, I'm 50 and in a Rock and ROll band.

I have found the best way to meet musicians is attend Open Mics. Open Mics attract just the very type you are looking for; fellow musicians who have arrived at the point where they are ready to play out and have a strong desire to do so. Of the last 4 bands I have been in, 3 of those I met all the players at an Open Mic. So check out the local papers. You should be able to find quite a few Open Mics in Wichita.

Another good place to search is on Harmony Central. They have a musicians search by city or zip code.

Good thought Wes! I think I'll use that idea to try to get a drummer for a second band we're trying to form. My best friend put out flyers at two music shops but got no response. All in due time I suppose....
