    The very reason most of us joined here was not because of this, instead what others have achieved by not being us.

    You could've just said that you don't have any musical talent. Loving this thread!

    I was part of a band in the 6th grade. I won't bore anybody with the details unless they want them but here is the history, simplified without Proper nouns.
    My best friend ( who played trumpet and some guitar) and I (who played piano and actually forgot that I could play auxiliary percussion. That was weird because I played bass drum for the school band that year.) decided to join the school rock band. Eventually, so many people joined that the music teacher asked us to form little sub-bands. Him and I partnered with four other friends. Then, someone else came in. Eventually, the band ended up having NINE people. One person never showed up to a rehearsal. One person stopped coming and stopped talking about it. Then, everyone else except me never had a set schedule so we never had a full band rehearsal. One time, it was just me for half an hour and then someone came late. When people did show up, they goofed around. I would lose my temper which was unlike myself, as I am usually a very calm person. Sometimes. I then had the brilliant idea to quit. Soon after I did, my best friend (who was the only other person who consistently showed up) quit. Then, the only other person who would be able to make the band somewhat good, quit. Then someone else quit. I don't really know what happened after, but I can safely assume that everyone else quit. No one mentioned the band after that incident except my best friend and I, where it turned into an inside joke. I have not done any musical collaborations with anyone else since then for fear of the same thing happening.
    I thank anyone who has read through this rant.

    Thank you! I probably should’ve specified, I’m the bassist for the band

    I'll jump in. This is a song from my newest album Side Tracked. Released last summer. Blues and rock mixed up with some pop sensibility and sometimes some "out" playing.

    I'm on guitar. The band is really great. Bruce Katz on keys (look him up; he's fantastic).

    Not my band, but the drummer of my my band has another trio (now added horns). I went in, added few lights and shot the video. Five takes within one hour and they chose the one they liked. Analog recording.

    Here is a link to my old band SOLKUNGEN (" The Sun King" in Swedish) on spotify, you can find it on other streaming services as well.

    We were active in Sweden in the early 90's 1991-93. It's heavy psychedelic pop with poetic lyrics in southern Swedish. Influences among others were Byrds, Zappa, Nick Drake, Genesis, Roxy Music...

    I’ve been writing music, recording and producing it from a spare bedroom in our home and releasing it under the moniker Reflectivity since 2014. This is a link to my latest EP, Master of None, it’s rock/pop based. I’m also on Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal, and other services but listen where it’s free. Even if you already subscribe you might feel ripped off.

    I don't do personal attacks here by stating someone in particular is right or wrong.
