I am in this band and have played/jammed out with them since June. Now all I had to do was learn the songs (6 originals) and i assumed we would get going playing out or something. I figured we would just fill up the song list with covers. But the original guitar player rejoined the group so now there are 2 guitar players, I think he wants to drop all but like 2 of the old songs and write new ones. I have no problem with this except that all the songs seem to be made up of power chord stemming from F or C or C#. Some of these songs are pretty fast so i have to play with the rhythm or lead, not much room to improvise, i keep wanting to add some funk or slap to the groove just to change the sound a little but i pretty much get blown off. I really like playing with these guys because the originals sound good and are FINISHED. But now here it has been 3 months and we are pretty much exactly where i was when i played with my old band which was nowhere. I just am getting frustrated because the new guitarist is so much into power chords and heavy- heavy music. I have almost zero room for melodies or just some alternate lines, in fact i just about get drowned out by the dueling guitarists. One other thing is that the new guy is not into majority rules he thinks that some should not have to do what they don't want. what can I do to get my opinion heard, I am playing with these guys for the experince and because the drummer and I have been in another band together, he is really good. I like everyone in the band, just getting bored with the lack of progress and comitment to play in front of people.
