Re: Leaving a band to start a new one? Where to start?
Have to say that I've only played in one band that was playing almost exactly what I wanted. Tat band "pulled" tiny audiences who mostly sat there nonplussed wondering what we had to be on to play music like that :)
If your preferences aren't mainstream, eg alt. rock with hints of latin, jazz and prog, then finding like-minded musicians at your level is not always easy.
