@reto i had this problem once...solved it by saying in the want ad (actually a poster at the local rehearsal space) "Looking for <guitarist, drummer> for a <band type>, influences are <musicians that sound like the stuff I want to play>"
@wohali thanks, I think I should rephrase it. or I thought about putting a link to a few songs so people can listen and judge beforehand.
@reto Good idea! Modesty and shyness led me to use more famous people as influences rather than link my own stuff, but today I might do that!
@wohali I linked to my stuff now so I don't even have to deal with a large percentage 🤭
@reto Having a similar issue. The older I get, the harder it is to find people your own age who want to play the same music. Definite downside to living in the suburbs in Canada.
