So, I've been working with a guitarist to get some songs written and get more members and get something started. Yes, another start up project.
I'm liking what we have so far, and think that it would be fun to play live and all that. I play drums, intermadiate at best, and the guitarist does too. He's pretty good. We are going to be looking for dummers here in a little bit and. We've been talking, saying that new drummer needs to be better than we are. For me, that's no problem. I'm not all that great, but I don't know about finding someone better than he is.
Is it unrealistic to expect that other members in your band should be better at their instruments than you are? I mean, if your playing your second (or third) instrument, you should expect to be playing with lesser musicians if you yourself are a lesser player with that instrument too. Right?
I don't want to just be a band that records and doesn't play shows. No way. Maybe I'd have to bite the bullet? Problem is, we're trying to write stuff that isn't quite mainstream, so finding a group of good musicians could be problematic.
That came off pretty high and mighty. I'm not saying that I'm Awesome! in any way, I just look at things differently and would need members that could do the same.
