Rock Band

Creating a rock band takes money, time and patience. Eventually, the hard work will pay off, I'm told. The drummer and I have been going at it since August of 2007, feeling things out, finding and jamming with others. Around sometime in late September we found a guitar player to join the band. We were finally getting somewhere, molding the songs and figuring our sound out, finding our direction. The rug was pulled out from under us a few weeks ago. Our guitar player decided, (after five months of practicing), that he didn't want to be in the band anymore. I nearly broke down and cried. We miss him, terribly.

Presently, we're looking for another guitarist to join. Its been hard going. It's difficult to find people to play this kind of music we're trying to create. I've been posting on Craig's list with some luck. Not as much luck as we'd like, but, we are getting some replies. Before our guitarist quit we were starting to look for a singer. In a lot of ways that's even tougher than finding a guitar player. You would think in a city this size there would be a lot of talent itching to be involved in something different. I mean, we're not trying to reinvent the wheel, we can't, we just want people to hear us and think of music a bit differently.

I'm sticking to it, regardless, but sometimes, sometimes, I want to give up and quit. Its been worth it so far, creating something with people, working towards a finished piece of art that wasn't in the world before you made it. We will get there sooner or later.
