Before getting started working on your sound and style, you will first need to think about what your project will eventually look like.
You basically have three options:
- BANDThat’s what most people will do, it will probably be the traditional setup consisting of drummer, bassist, main instrumentalists (guitars and / or keys), and a male or a female singer.
- SOLO ARTISTAll alone on stage with your keyboard or guitar, or maybe supported by other musicians (an expendable band if you want).
- PROJECTThis could be some kind of a more special music or studio project for example, a single person or a small group of people working on some crazy shit in their basement or garage, and maybe there will even be no live performances at all.
No matter what kind of project form you select, the rules to be followed in order to become successful will always be the same.
