6 hours excluding shows
Everyone knows that.
I'd say 6hrs a week just rehearsing, then a couple hours songwriting on top but you don't all need to be together for that (some bands do I suppose).
My band manages maybe 6hrs a month, fun times :/
define worthwhile pls.
not really just so that the sound progresses and we get a bit better as we go along, so it develops and doesn't just stay static
including lonely times
Probably another 6 for dailies and consumables farming.
About another 2-3 for researching boss encounters and keeping up to date with theorycraft.
very much excluding show
So excluding one show but including the other two I would say 3 hours+
at least for the first 6 months or so
I bet you are playing to sold out show in week time
two is better
Sometimes, every other week is fine (works in my new band actually) but you gotta also do stuff inbetween, like set up all your social media, websites, design a logo, put your shit on soundcloud and bandcamp and send it around, book gigs, all that crap, as well as write songs so you got stuff to bring to practice.
Basically, you can be in a band but it's gotta be ticking over and moving forward every day really, even if it's a very small amount.
tsk tsk tsk
as some context i've kindof formed two duos in the last couple of weeks with two seperate guys after getting a bit drunk -
obviously haven't done anything about either yet
might have to combine them into one awful sounding mess of totally contradicting influences
3hrs a week seems doable i think
Join my band. We're ace. That's a fact.
If you like stoner rock.
ha hahahaha ha ah haha hah haa
what a thought
goodness no - also your band is like a million miles away from where i live so no dice bro
as in wondering if you need to spend, say, 3 hours listening to Deafheaven a week to get into it and mae it worth your while.
I wouldn't worry about it, just go with what feels good. If you can only make it once a week but you enjoy it and you crack on working on loads of good stuff then great. If it never works out, then you can't force it.
i have my friday fun tie on today!
1 hour and a couple of tins if you're any other band member
anyone used http://www.axetec.co.uk/ before?
We do 2 practices a week not including shows.
Between that I do lots of other bits like webstuff and songwriting.
