    If you are new to the game I'd recommend the same as PsiGuard: Try more conventional junglers.

    If you want to know why he's not "meta" as a jungler:
    - Bad early clear. It's hard get to level 3 on your first jungle rotation with Bard and even if you can, chances are you won't be surviving any invade that could happen (and invades will happen if you're jungle Bard).
    - Little damage on a squishy champion. Bard isn't a good tank nor a damage dealer. Some champions will kill you if you gank them and they're smart enough.
    - His traits are overshadowed by other junglers. If you want weird gank paths try Lee Sin/ Zac, if you want heavy CC try Nautilus/ Rammus, if you want damage pick any jungler with more than 2 damaging skills and he'll deal more damage than Bard.

    You can make pretty much anything work, but to be honest he's not really made for jungling. You'd be better off with a more standard jungler.
