Has this ever happened to you? You're driving down the road with the radio on. A song comes on that you've played often in one band, or maybe 1,000 times in a lot of bands. You listen to the bass part. All of a sudden you hear all these parts in there and realize you've missed a lot of the subtle parts or even some obvious notes, or even feel? How about when you get a new group together and pick songs to get the ball rolling; to start building a set list and realize that over the years, every player in the group has played the songs so many times with different people, that the song no longer resembles itself, and you never learned the correct bass part anyway? The first scenario has happened to me many times. I guess I was in a hurry to learn the song in the first place; maybe a little lazy? The second problem has happened to me in two different bands in the last couple of years. I have said to the other guys, "Hey, I think we need to get the original song and listen to it again, maybe even RELEARN it, because it's morphed into something that's not even close to the original". Mods....I don't know if this belongs in Band Management or Technique. Move if I'm on the wrong road.
