Hi guys, I don't write much here but i read a lot of threads. I opened this one to tell you the situation with my band. I started a band with a drummer and a guitarist that we used to play in another band before (we've known each other for more than two years). We found a singer and writer (one of the best musicians i know) so we are complete. The band, musically speaking, is the best band i've been in in my life and i love the music we play The bad part of all is the gear we have. The drummer and i have mostly everything we need (we only need to upgrade some things, but we have everything) however the guitarist does not have an amp and his pedalboard (in his own words) is ****. The singer/guitarist does not own an amp either, but he has the money to buy one when we will need it. The point is that the other guitarist says he doesn't have the money. He is also creating a home studio and all he has is spent on monitors, computers and that stuff. It is good, we really support him but we are planning on touring and playing in shows and we depend on wether the other bands want to lend him their gear. I had a lot of bad experiences so i don't lend my amp head to anyone, which is one of the conditions usually. I talked to him several times (during two years he always said that he had no money). It's stopping us from playing regularly and i personally hate when i depend on ther people in these kind of things Have you guys had an issue like this?
