    So I was FINALLY contacted by a drummer on Facebook, and I'm talking to him now, and he wants to join the band. I have two issues though, the first is that I just spoke with the guitar player, and he dropped out, so now it's just me (although guitar is easy to replace), and the second is that the guy asked if I have any music I can show him. Should I show him any of my youtube recordings, or should I show him instead the "better" sounding stuff I recorded with the guitar player before? I'm really worried that my music sounds trash to anyone who doesn't know about it, and that he won't want to give it a chance

    @DrivenByDemons what would you do if a band you're considering joining sends you a song about a mexican named dawg being gay?

    So the band you've been telling us you have was you and a guitar player who's now quit. So you have no band. You told your dad that one of the main reasons you wanted to quit school was to focus on your band THAT DOESN'T EXIST. :rofl:

    I'm sure any drummer would want to join a band with a mentally unstable nerd who writes songs about people on his favorite message board. YOU FAGGOT. :spit:

    There is nothing to be ashamed of Gar. Put them tunes out there. The real question is what has he got to show you.

    Play him "Dawg came out to me in a dream" and then explain it. You'll seem super mature and cool.

    Just send him the youtube stuff and say you did some joke songs for a message board. Say you only used your cell phone but the music is pretty good, shows your ability to structure songs and an ability to write melodies.

    Bro, have you stashed all your stuffed animals?

    Don't let potential bandmates see them.

    Except we've all heard you play the guitar and you can't shred. You can barely play. :D

    Upload an AIFF file of "Reign in Blood" into your DAW. Speed it up to 160 BPM. On a second track, add some shitty euro-beats and a rave synth in the background, but do so at a 1/2 step lower than the original key. On track three, mumble in early Medieval Norwegian. Use iMovie to record yourself making a piece of toast for breakfast. Upload to BandCamp. Send him the link. You will be the next Gaylor Swift!

    You can mail me my thank you card to my yacht.
