Re: How to form a band?
You could post an ad in the RDU Craigslist... but it will largely be ignored among the countless others.
All the bands holding auditions lately are country,bluegrass,christian,or punk.
Andy, you could state what kind of band you are interested in starting on here... i'd reply if for no other reason than how close by.
Myspace search is ok if you search by all band names ending with (needs guitarist....holding auditions.... or needs members)
Some music communities like this one and other forums are decent places to start... but the best bet is to hit up the local scene and try to steal people from their current projects or ask crowd members if they have any musical experience, local open mic nights are gravy too.
