Ok folks here's a question for those of you who gig regualarly in coutnry band. When learning new "cover" material, do you expect the bandleader to pass out charts and tunes? This summer is going to be Janesville's (the band I play in) busiest ever. We have alot of gigs coming in and our bandleader wants to add a bunch of tunes and add them quickly, She's sent us (the drummer and I) MP3's of the tunes, but so far has been strangely hesitent to share her chord sheets with us. In fairness, it may be because she doesn't realize that we use the same words-and-chords sheets as our starting points for note taking as she does. It's a country group, and neither the drummer and I are excessively experienced in country. We want to work from the same words and I want to make sure I'm not missing any sublte chord changes. Her stated goal is that we be able to know our whole catalog of songs (around 40 right now, shooting for 60 probably) and be able to bring them out at gigs at a moments notice. She wants us to learn the songs on our own before practice. This all seems reasonable, but is it reasonable for me to push back with a request for chord charts? We're going to discuss it on Tuesday at practice, and I have a feeing there's just been some minor communications breakdowns, but I wanted to check in with you all to see how realistic my expectations are.
