Default How to run a band?

Hi,

I have been thinking for long to come up with a band. Just that, been a bit lethargic. Hopefully, I have woken up.

I plan to form a band and run it. Any Ideas, how to get started?

Write at least a few songs for whatever instrument you're playing, then find people looking for a project.

If you are planning on being the band leader then you will need to be a better musican then those that are playing for you or at the very least the primary song writer! As an experienced musican I would not take orders from someone who is not. You will also have to have good communication and leadership skills or again no one is going to listen to you. Having some good charisma goes along way. Treating the people playing with you with respect and how you would want to be treated is importent as well.

Easy, just make friends with at least 2 persons that play an instrument and eventually ask them if they wanna start a band..

Starting a band is pretty easy the hard part is following through and creating a good dynamic between the members..

it goes beyond music too ideally you need to find ppl that you can get along with on a friendship level not just pick based on their skills on an instrument cause you might end up with a lead guitarist who looks down on the band and just bosses them around..
