so i sent the guitarist/lead singer for this new band i'm in a thing i was messing around with...this was teh conversation that ensued. D e troi t 9: cool, yea idk what to do with that lol Fender X 5 5: yeah that's what i thoght Fender X 5 5: i like the progression though D e troi t 9: i mean its not really a riff, i thought it was gonna be like a bassline and **** Fender X 5 5: nope that's just what i do i **** around wheni'm alone D e troi t 9: word Fender X 5 5: if i'm gonna write a bassline it's gotta be with theband Fender X 5 5: so i can lock in with the drums and stuff D e troi t 9: well you can try writing basslines by urself and then songs can be worked around it, a lot of bands do that from time to time D e troi t 9: for example longview, or something like jenny is a friend of mine Fender X 5 5: yeah D e troi t 9: im sure those bass lines were just like "oh **** i wrote this bassline check it out" D e troi t 9: and then the whole song prob grew from there Fender X 5 5: yup yeah i just yessed him to death to get the hell out of the conversation. Dude's a "composition major" so clearly he knows how to do my job. after our gig the week after next i'm outa there. the drummer andi are on the same page, but the guitarist is just stupid (nice house but nobody's home) and the singer is this pompous mofo. I'm outa there.
