Musicians are lazy people. Don’t say they aren’t. They are.
If you are having trouble getting your shit together, then you should check out Meet and Jam, the social networking site for musicians. You can find other musicians, just in case you can’t find a guy who plays the oboe; You can book studio time, coordinate with your good-for-nothing bandmates and so on.
A recent feature in Bass Magazine said this:
‘The site is for all genres and levels of ability. There are professional drummers on the site, looking for a new band, as well as enthusiastic amateurs looking to play more. There are singer-songwriters, violinists, trombonists, pianists, death metal lead guitarists, rappers… all wanting to meet and jam.’
Most recently, they've been rightly pissed off about Camden council threatening to start requiring licences to busk.
Myspace was for Americans who felt their twee Oasis covers were a valid contribution to music. This is the real thing.
