Sorry if it seems like I didn't search; I couldn't really find anything particular to my situation. I'm in a band (my second band, but the first barely practiced at all), and we're having a problem. The problem (that has actually plagued both of my bands), is that my riffs and basslines tend to be really dominating. I'll show the group a part of a song I've made that's really rather killer, but when we try to add guitar, it just falls apart. And the same occurs when the guitar player writes a cool riff. I mean, I can usually come up with something pretty wicked for it, but it either takes lead of the riff, or just doesn't really do it for what he had in mind. Any advice? This is a pretty serious problem that's occured at almost every band practice I've went to. We tried covering some songs, and abandoned it; not for difficulty, I mean, we can pretty much over anything we want with enough practice, but we just get kind of bored, I guess, of playing someone elses stuff. Thanks in advance.
