    How far is your commute to practice?

    Yea, the funny thing about it all is that I finished my basement and have ample room to play. None of them are interested in playing at my place. I'm not really interested to pursue music much anymore at my time in life. Too much headache for very little reward.

    How far is your commute to practice?

    Update. Band didn't go anywhere after the first jam. Too much life going on and the commute really sucked. Still looking for the golden unicorn of a band that wants a extraordinarily mediocre time keeper, that has paid gigs, and no BS.

    When are you going to quit gigging?

    I haven't played a gig since Halloween. I pretty much haven't even played the drums since either. I just started looking into a gigging band because other than working out, I realized I don't have any hobbies or a social life. So, I'll try it out again.

    Finding new music

    How do yall go about finding new music? I'm stuck on the old stuff I've been listening to for decades. I tried Apple music and their stations made from bands I like but they just play the same 18 songs, so I made another station, and another. I primarily use YouTube while at work to scope...

    After over a decade of commitment and perseverance I said good bye to my Yamaha Stage Custom, a set of the 700 series hardware and some Istanbul Agops. It was a long good run with me and her and though she taught me plenty I had to let her go. Is was a somber week but I know she is being...
