How to Start A Band Tip# 1

A lot of people are saying "Pinoy Rock Music" is dead. I strongly disagree. If you know where to go to, you'll see a lot of Indie bands making beautiful original music in the underground scene. It's just that most local rock bands now don't make it to mainstream radio because of all the fascination of pinoys with "K-Pop" and the usual OPM novelty pop.

But Pinoy Rock ain't dead. No way. It's just sleeping for now. :)

Anyway, one way to help the current situation of OPM "Pinoy Rock", is to, well, contribute. So how do you exactly go about it? Let me share to you some tips:

How to Start a Band, Tip # 1: Learn to play a musical instrument.

If you have been planning to learn to play a musical instrument before or you really enjoyed playing "rock band"/"guitar hero" in the arcades, then you might have a calling! Now is the time to try and learn to play the real thing!

With so much free resources on the internet, there's no excuse for you not to learn to play an instrument. Just make that first step and buy that guitar/bass/drums you've been looking at. It doesn't matter if you buy the cheap ones first for you could easily upgrade your gear as you get better and more serious in your craft.

Of course, there's nothing better than learning to play a musical instrument than learning with a music teacher. Having a teacher would provide you with musical guidance and inspiration. You may take the "self taught" path but if you really want to learn faster, you should go out and find a music teacher. You may inquire at local music stores too for lessons.

So what are you waiting for?! Let's go and wake up Pinoy Rock together! :)
