(I don't know if this is the right place for this, but here goes) Our band has been having quite a debate recently. Our drummer thinks we should write our own songs, and only do 1 or 2 covers. The guitarist and I both think the covers should outweigh the orginals, simply just for our first gigs. We've been together for a month or two, and haven't had a real gig yet (one is coming up in May for the talent show). I figure since people will know the songs we cover, they'll like it better than us playing a ton of songs they've never heard. We'd play some more gigs, each time adding new songs that we've written. What do you think?
