|suggestions for finding band members|
I'm getting pretty distraught over this so here I go lol. I'm looking for band members and this process seems impossible. At first it was cool, I put out a post on reddit and I was kinda surprised at just how many people got back to me but each person ended up having a red flag (not like an actual red flag but a clear "because of x, this probably won't work out like i'd hope").
Right now it's just me and my bff drummer but he's just not as committed to this as I'd want which sucks cuz the chemistry is obviously there from a personal perspective and he's good at helping me write.
So yeah. I ideally wanted to be playing show ready by 2023 and to also have this next EP i'm working on in a closer to complete state but shit just isn't playing out. Any tips for a band newbie like me and more specifically any good sites you know of that are good for finding members?
thanks for reading my vent at the very least lol

|not having an anime pfp always helps, with anything really|
|Finding band members is a pain in the ass, especially if you live in an alpine shit hole. Moving to bigger cities help, but that's a big change most of the times.|

|I'm in the same predicament but I just need a drummer and I can handle the rest.jamned one track and I dig it!|
|maybe it's your band name?|
the old ways are best still. post flyers in your local live venue pubs and record shops, talk to bar managers who book bands, go see some live shows and introduce yourself to some people, most rhythm section musicians don't mind playing in four or five bands at once.
