It seems that 90% of the lead guitar and keyboard people we run across are not as interested in how they play their instruments as they are doing lead vocals. Hardly anyone here in Central Florida says they are a lead player or keyboard player and that is their main interest.
If a band is already formed and looking to add a new or additional lead player and keyboard player they get passed up for that reason, as many bands that are already formed or working to put a show together just do not want to deal with adding another vocalist.

Interesting. Guitarists are a dime a dozen over here in Norcal but we can't come up with a capable drummer. What with the circumstances here, you might have some luck to convince a guitarist in CA to move to Florida. :lol:

I once posted on Craig's List and local music stores.
I was specific, " Metal Musicians wanted" .
What came over to audition was dismal .
Most guys didn't know the difference between a natural minor, harmonic minor, melodic minor or pentatonic minor .... They were basicly Punk, Alternative or Nu Metal guys .... What a disappointment .... I wanted to form a band, not become a music teacher.

Ha, reminds me of the strange looks I got when the auditions realized I was on more than 6 strings. It was like I broke music somehow. Then explaining inversions to match chords below 6 string and harmonic minor coexisting with natural minor.... :roll:

At this point, though, if I knew how to play drums well, I'd be willing to sit down with someone and work that out so we could have a regular drummer.

Yeah, talent is pretty abysmal. For the most part capable guitarists get bogged down playing with their drum programming tools and supposedly releasing "albums" on Bandcamp. The rest is just hacks that can't play guitar for the most part.
Try to find a decent drummer or bassist - that's almost impossible :)
