I'm putting together a new project and just need a guitarist now. I had to cancel an audition tonight because our drummer couldn't make it. Thing is, he's such a private guy that he didn't give us a reason - this guy is like 25 and doesn't even have a facebook account . Awesome drummer who teaches part time at a local music store, I met him at a blues jam awhile back. Now, if he wasn't such an introvert there's no way he'd be available - AFAIK that's his only shortcoming. And I'm sure he had a good reason to not make it as he loves playing. I can "work around" this issue but I can see it being a problem as already I had to tell this guitarist I didn't know why he cancelled and I'm sure that made a great first impression . Should I have made up something? I've already "hinted" at the drummer that he needs to give us reasons for cancellations because the average musician auditioning isn't going to cut the band the slack I'm willing to cut him but he didn't seem to "get" it.
