our current rythem guitarist is about to be fired from the band, I don't know how to go about this, would it be easier for me, his best friend or our lead singer/lead guitarst to fire him? he isn't as talented as the rest of us on our instruments and needs to learn alot more before he's up to our level. at the same time, we recent;y found an incredible guitarist to replace him that is more experianced. were only teenagers (me being 17 and the oldest) and we don't really know how to go about this, our lead guitarst and drummer go to the same school, and i go to the same school as our current rythym. were going to finish out the next 2 gigs with him, should we break the news before or after the gigs? p.s. he doesn't show up for practice and plays in one of our original songs, and bass in one of the covers (he already knew the song and I didn't really like the song to begin with) i just don't want to hurt his feelings or piss him off.
