How do I start a band?

What are the steps to be in a band?

To start let's talk about the elephant in the room. From my personal experience, what matters most to be in a band is to have the skills to be part of one. Therefore, the first point of this count will be dedicated to practice.

1- Practice:

You must remember that to be part of a band or start with a project the first thing is to master your instrument and know your skills, this will help you dedicate the time they spend on rehearsals and together to advance in a team and not to practice what you should have practiced on your part. This point applies to each of the band members.

Save time to find out if you or the band members know how to play their instrument, this is a task that you must have done before to contemplate assembling a band.

2 Define your sound:

Defining the sound you want to achieve with your band will tell you what members you need for your ensemble, what instruments, pedals or effects you can use and at the same time it will help you to discard all the elements that do not work for you or do not go with the sound of the group.

3- Choose the members:

It is important for this stage of the process that they define together who will be in the band and the best recommendation is not to choose anyone just for being your friend or for being very talented.
It is important to express how committed the members will be to the project and be strict with issues such as rehearsals, practices and schedules. If your band is made up of your friends or super talented people but who don't compromise or don't respect the rehearsal schedules.
Choose the members of your band according to the level of commitment and delivery that you yourself will dedicate to the project.

4- Organization:

For the whole process to be worthwhile and be an enriching experience instead of a nightmare and end up separating the band before it starts they should be as organized as possible.

-Define schedules that everyone can attend and commit to respect,

-Define test mechanics such as: arriving at the test with proposals or material already studied and practiced will help keep the test time useful and without distractions.

-Register your progress and references and then consult them and not lose our valuable creative material.

5- Have a great time.

It seems that there would be better advice to form a band but the reality is that the best thing about having a band comes from the process of achieving, together with other people, a common goal and enjoying the path between being a garage band and some stars of the music.

If your creative, conceptual and musical process is surrounded by people who make you happy, share ideas and references, the creation process will be the most fun part and you will enjoy together the moment of going on stage together.
