    I've been playing guitar for a couple of weeks now (yeah it's not an awesome brass, but what can I do?) anyways, my friend plays bass and we're looking to get together for next year's battle of the bands, but we need a drummer. Who knows on that, but that's the closes to a band I've come. My brother was in a band though...

    I'm in band! I play clarinet.

    Marching band is the best. EVER. I might be a drum major next year, which would be awesome.

    If I could reccomend an instrument, I'd say pretty much any brass(trombone trumpet, etc.) instrument. But that's just me, you could be good at a percussion(drums) or woodwind(clarinet, saxophone, flute)
    I didn't mean orchestra band. I meant some sort of rock band.

    That'd be cool being a drum major! My friend tried out last year but he didn't make it D8. But I'm sure if you try you'll make it. BTW what's the name of your show? Ours is The Color Wheel

    Thanks for the confidence! Actually, I'm not sure, this other guy who didn't try out last year is trying out this year. People seem to think he's going to make it.

    The way drum major tryouts work is you go and tryout no matter what leadership position you want, there are the drum majors, the captains (woodwind captain, brass captain, drum captain, in charge of those larger sections) and the section leaders for specific instruments. Last year I tried out for clarinet section leader. I didn't get it, but I was a freshman and a bunch of juniors tried out, so I wasn't too disappointed.

    But, if I'm a drum major next year I get to be head drum major when I'm a senior. Every year there are 1-2 drum majors who are seniors, one of which was a dm when they were a junior making them head dm, and a dm who's a junior and who's going to be head dm next year.

    Well, we'll see how it goes. I think I can make it though.

    And our show doesn't really have a name... we just play music and march out onto the field and play music at halftime.

    Wow that's kinda the same as my school. For us, we have dm tryouts, and usually not too many people try out for that. And we don't have full section leaders, like for brass. Instead we only have them for individual instruments. I would've been one this year for the tubas, but our current section leader is a senior, so yeah lol.


    Oh and @platinumdude, either way I think you should do it, especially if it's with your friends.

    Really? I mean, are you currently playing any tunes that provide a free solo section? Like...Bad Attitude, or songs like that? That seems kinda borderline not fair to not allow a trombone solo, or which ever horn you play in JB.

    The upper band at my school recently played a Beatles medley that contained a prominent tuba solo.

    Just thought you should know.
