Hey guys, As you might have understood from the title, our band has been up to some recording, which has left me unhappy with our drummer's attitude. Now, don't get me wrong, he's a great guy, and I'd say probably my best friend, but while we've been recording, a couple of things have come up. His brother was in a band that was kind of a big deal a few years back (indie label record deal, put out an album, broke up. Pretty standard.), and has a lot of recording gear, etc. that we get to use. Thing is, I'm the only one in our band that doesn't hate recording, and while our guitarists and singer put up with it, the drummer's being a little unreasonable. He has no patience during the process and is only concerned with getting it done quickly. Trying to point out what sounds bad - problems with mixing, dialing in tone, and all that - just pisses him off and he gets all defensive. He keeps saying things like "wait till my brother gets the rest of his gear here and we'll do it over" - then why did we just record that now? - and even more annoying, "It doesn't have to sound THAT good, it's just a demo." So? It should still sound as good as it can, and believe me, it doesn't. Any advice from you guys on how to calm him down a bit about the whole process?
