In new group. Drummer is very steady but we have conflict on one original song (I'm almost to point of telling him to step off). Deal is, song is super steady but during one bridge part the guitarist plays a riff that keeps coming up a fraction short of next beat and even that is inconsistent. Drummer wants us to try and choke/anticipate the beat to accommodate the guitarist, saying "we're the rhythm section, we are supposed to follow him". The way I hear it, the guitarist finishes the lick and then hears us hit the downbeat, launching his next rep. of the lick. So I am dis-inclined to try to follow the guitarist - guitarist looks kind of embarrassed that the drummer goes on about it since it is underscoring his inconsistency too. Thoughts please.
