So in a nutshell here is my problem. The band I currently played with lost our drummer, he was a really great drummer too. We managed to play a lot of songs with heavy drums and bass to cover our guitar players "talent". Culminating into a very heavy drum and bass version of pink floyd which our crowd loved. Now then, Flash forward to now. We have a new drummer. I CAN'T PLAY ANYTHING BUT THE ROOT NOTE(No Walks, No Arpeggios,no nice tasty little fills, 15 minute solos, none of my old slap parts, and no fun -_-) and if I do the guy thinks I'm screwing up. It really just makes me want to punch a kitten right in the baby maker while leaping off of Big Ben in London wearing a suit of nails. The thing is the Singer/Guitarist is just fine with this.... Can you guys think of anything to fix this. I can't really leave the band because this singer is the only guy around here that can actually sing and do it well. -_- Long Story Short I have a new drummer he blows and I can't get the band leader to do **** about it.
