Hello Socialphers and welcome to my very first post in this awesome space. Today, i'll share with you some tips that are incredibly useful at the time of starting up a band. I'm calling this kind of posts about bands and music the Rock Zone or [WRZ] for the titles. This articles were intended to be posted directly into a blog . But I decided to share them with the Socialphy community. If you give some good critics and help guys, maybe I'll work harder in S!. -Decisions
First of all, you need to picture the basic idea that a band has only two ways to go. The first is the covering band and the second, the professional band. Once you decided whether you'll be creating one or the other, things would be pretty easy to start with.
Once you know where your band would be sailing you're ready to start the auditions for your band's members. The most important thing is to have a well balanced band. All members must have the idea of how the band works and how it must sound.
Then you must decide the sound and genre of your band, this is the most important part of all, it is in this step where you give your band the essence and personality. Once you achieve the sound you can find a name and create the image of your band.
Once you decide the path and sound and once all the members are presented the band is officially created.
(I'll get into this in a full post)
The signature of your band is the sound. Creating your own sound is directly influenced by the music yo listen to. This is, indeed, one of the most important parts for a successful band. The sound would have little parts from every member's musical tastes. Achieving a quality sound with the correct techniques would result in the bands sound. Do not only focus on your own sound, including effects, techniques, different instruments and so on, but in how are you mixing your very own flavor with those of the band members.
Take each and every opportunity that arrives to your door. If it is a small party, then go. Opening for friend's bands...GO! You never now when would you meet the right person to become famous. Remember that once you said yes, you Must NOT say no.
Playing your own songs at small clubs or parties is ensuring you the opportunity to be heard, shared and liked.
Last but not least you must be loyal to your friends and band. This is a very tricky topic. Sometimes studios and promoters won't like some of the original members to be into the band. This could be because personal problems, attitudes or skills. When picking all your members you must be sure that the band works like a clock. Always in time and in harmony. If one of the members isn't doing the correct thing talk all together and try to figure out the solution. Never do things that you would regret. Remember that if you go pro, those guys are your brothers.
This is all for today. Please comment and rate. I'll be reading your critics. Thanks for reading.
