j/k


Just let him know you're serious about music and respect him as a musician and would like him to share his music experience with you. Don't keep asking constantly- nagging is enough to make anybody annoyed with you.

or just lie and say you have 5 albums on a major label... laugh.gif wink.gif

Well you must talk him into it. If your band is not progressing it's gonna be a hard to convince anyone to join, but if your band is really progressing, you guys work hard, had a couple of gigs, and doing serious author work then he would be interested because you provide a future for him.

Try to make him realize how cool the bend is..Tell him some cool future plans for gigs or something..Make him understand that you are serious and that you would love to have him on board..But than again, keep in mind that some people are just not meant to be playing in bands and tend to refuse it any way they can..They like to play at home and thats it..no matter how good they are..

Agree with the others also, but is he in a band already & is he a friend of yours or just someone you seen around?

If he`s in a band then it may be harder to convince him, especially if he`s satisfied with his exsisting band, if its a friend then I`d work on the "please could you help us out a bit" angle.

If it was me I`d make sure my band was pretty much rock solid and tight, just lacking a lead guitarist, then I`d invite him down "Just for a jam to help us out" try and tempt him into it.

Failing that .... beg?? laugh.gif

You can always try to hit him hard in the head, so he loses his recollection. And then when he wakes up and asks who he is, you tell him that he's the lead guitarist in your band rolleyes.gif

You need to get yourself out there if you dont know anyone, try an advert in a local paper or theres lots of sites on the internet to scan for musicians in your area etc smile.gif

Just ask him to give one band practice a try with your band, if he likes it he will join, if he doesn't then he won't.

Tell him that there's no pressure to join or anything he can just come along to see if he will enjoy it.
