if you can use Maya you can use a sequencer and you can be the whole band.
you can get a pretty good one with a whole pile of plug ins with every 'computer music ' mag (the mag of that name, a UK mag i think), every month it comes with a complete package, i guess so you will keep buying the mag?? anyway, you can get some good sequancers pretty cheap that do MIDI and Audio, there are a lot of guys here at SM who are using them, i know 'cause i discuss it with them from time to time.
there is no excuse to not be a whole band, drums and all, at home on your computer, it is a lot of fun and a can simply be a good way to jam and learn as you go, in readiness for that big break that will catapult you into musicians heaven (whatever that is.)
no-one around you that into rock?? where are you, the south pole?? I know actually, its hard to find musos unless you are in the curcuit or the loop, its a clickly bunch at times, its like trying to find someone into maya, there's no-one then suddenly you find a whole pile of people doing it.
take it easy and life will be easy
