Hi I've been lurking on this site for a while and I decided to start posting. I'm looking for some advice, I put an ad in Craigslist looking for a cover band, and I auditioned with a band and they were what we were both looking for. So I decided to join. Well it's going alright so far not many gigs right now. Well here's the thing now one of the members of the band wants to start writing original songs, now I have been in original bands before when I was younger, I'm 40. Right now I have zero interest in doing any original songs, after all I joined a cover band to play you know covers. I like the guys in the band, my question is how do I tell them that I don't want to do any originals.
