I know this question may not fit with the standards set by the moderators of this site but I ask anyway because I need help. Please don't suspend me for this.
I have been playing music for quite sometime and have gotten to the point where I am sick of playing by myself in my room.
I live on Long Island and have no friends (really).
I have no friends who play music and have never really known anyone with my interests.
I want to know if anyone knows of any places or communities maybe on the internet or in NYC.
I know of places that host open mics and jam sessions but I am looking for fellow musicians to meet and connect with maybe start a band with.
I would like to play in a guitar duo or band. I play blues, rock, jazz really anything just to get experience.
I really want to start playing with other musicians so badly.
I guess my question is how in your opinion can I go about finding musicians to network with and start a project with a band or duo with.
Should I go to more jam sessions?
Are there websites for networking musically?
I have posted an ad on craig's list but only got one reply.
What should I do to make musician friends and partners?
What should I do to find musicians I can play seriously with you know like be involved in a project a band or jazz guitar duo or something?
