Hello everyone. I've just started playing guitar a few years ago and have been actively taking weekly lessons. I am getting into the game a little later in life as I have always loved music, but thought it would be fun to have as a hobby (I am 43). Well, not surprisingly, I've caught the bug. I am to the point now where I am looking for folks to jam with and even possibly start a fun band on the side (I do have a regular job that takes up a lot of my time). I would think that I am in the same boat as many musicians out there. Which brings me to the reason for my post. I have not seen a good forum out there that essentially provides a means for people in the same area to discuss getting together to jam or to join bands. I was hoping there would be a forum that would be state-specific. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? Unfortunately, I don't have many friends that also play, so I am basically starting from scratch. Anybody know of any forums out there that caters to this sort of purpose? Thanks!!
