I play bass in one band but in this band I play guitar. Our bass player is a guitar player playing bass. When he joined the band he said he had always wanted to be the bass player in bands but always got stuck playing guitar because he was better than the other guitarists. Anyway... We were working on some older covers for an upcoming Country Club type gig. On "Get Down on it" after about the third or fourth time playing it he went off and basically played a bass solo through the entire song. In my mind WAY overplaying. He knew it and did it on purpose. Afterwards he asked the BL if he liked it. The BL said "loved it." So did the drummer, who is the BL's second in command. I kept my mouth shut even though his overplaying, to me, ruined the feel of the song. So the next song "Keep on Rockin' in the Free World" which I had played before in other bands, the BL actually stopped us and played the Neil Young version to show me how I should be playing the chords in the verses. So, he lets the bass player jam through a song basically making a solo out of it but wants me to play "cowboy chords" through the verses of a shi++y song that nobody will care about anyway. I'm pretty pi$$ed about it but what can I do? Just needed to vent!
