On here and at gigs in real life -- but I've always been friends with people who played instruments, which has helped immeasurably. The biggest thing has already been alluded to, which is that you have to have similar/the same set of expectations for the project, which is the potentially hardest thing to find (although I have been brutally lucky in that regard).

I think “expectations about the project” is as important as any sort of musical compatibility.

Followed closely by “do you own your own gear” and “are you going to just drink my beer and not chip in for the space”

These are important questions.

Met my current lead singer at an open mic out by where I live. Our bassist was a friend of hers.

Previous bandmates: Met the guitarist thrru an internship at Glide Memorial, met the drummer at the first rehearsal, second guitarist later on.

So a lot of random chance and getting out there I guess. :lol:

I have met people on Instagram that are local to me a few times. Have yet to jam with them but that's my fault. Odd spot to do it, but that's a thought as well!

I've had decent luck with joinmyband.co.uk and bandmix.co.uk (there is a US version of this one as mentioned earlier). 99% of people aren't a good match but it's how I ended up finding my current IRL band and several other cool people, and that's gone great in the end.

Met some cool people through gigs and friends of friends that I've never actually managed to make music with but would like to :lol: Which is where expectations and availability come in.
