Re: Why is it so hard to find people to jam with?
I seems like 95% of the musicians you run into just want the stigma of "being in a band". So far I've had some luck though on CraigsList, of all places. I really want to get away from the flakes who just want to "jam, drink some beer, and hang out, dude" without really having any direction at all.
I'm coming to realize though, it's all a numbers game. The more folks you make contact with, the better success you'll have in finding some real talented musicians into the same things you are. For the brief time I was in Sales, that was what was taught - you gotta play the numbers game in order to be successful. But it can be very frustrating! Good luck!
I don't aim to be the best, just the best looking.
