First they have to care ... that seems to be the rub.
Too many self centric individuals or just plain posers.

I can't answer inquiries local or otherwise unless I want to do it on the forum. Ha! You know that won't happen! A lot of people on here are freeloaders like myself. Sorry, my apologies to the subscribers. I'll pay when I can justify it.

Keep grinding man, something’s going to give eventually. Besides players aren't always the most stable folk out there. Fickle and flaky at times imo.

If you send them a message, they may have listed an e-mail address that no longer works or they just never check their messages. So they never know you contacted them.
Then you just get people who just don't care for you or what you're doing, but they can't write and say they're not interested. So it's easier just not to say anything. One guy contacted me and he was terrible. I wrote and thanked him, but said that his music needed a lot of work and that he wouldn't work out. I said it as nice as I could and he wrote me back being an absolute jerk about it.
Just keep plugging and using different avenues, not just this one.
