Just a vent ....I recently joined an established cover band that needed a bassist. Nice group of guys, decent musicians and paying gigs on the calendar. Problem is the setlist is short on popular dancable songs and long on extended concert style lead guitar jams. Once the lead gui**** goes into wank mode ....it can last forever. At a recent gig .....the guitarist started his lead by playing with his teeth ala Hendrix....then jammed on what seemed like forever then went back to playing with his teeth because he had forgot that he had already done that already. Even if your a lead guitarist in another band ...your probably bored by this point. A few times...the drummer and I have had to end songs ......in mid lead. There is a place for this kind of concert style jamming but the local clubs want the cougars to dance ...not sit and watch a night of extended lead guitar wankin. The problem is these guys want me to use my connections to book them into bars and clubs where they are not really musically appropriate. Oh well.......guess I'll try to book them into festivals and biker events where dancing cougars are not the priority.
