I'm in a new band and, especially since I got the band members together and chose the type of music, have been functioning as the band leader. This is a 60's cover band, not particularly complicated stuff, but made of of people who are not professional musicians. I've been pushing to avoid band jamming and focusing on rehearsal of specific song and harmony parts. Question: Do you think bands like this function better with a clear leader or "by committee"? Also, for those of you who have been in the same band for 5 or more years, which way to you think is the best? Thanks!
