My guitar player did something this morning that NONE of us expected he'd ever do. He actually approached us about getting a second guitarist. I had wanted a second guitarist in the band since day one, simply because I love to write harmonies. I had numerous discussions with him regarding it, but he didn't budge. He always said that he'd be afraid of what types of conflicts another musician would bring in (clash of styles, attitudes, etc)-but I always explained to him that the decision would be ours to make whether or not too keep the guy. I.E., if he was a jerk, he'd be gone in no time. Anyway, last night was his birthday party, and a childhood friend of his came over. He's in a band that actually has pretty good connections and plays at least every weekend. They play straight up hardcore and such, and the main guitarist was the guitar tech for one of the guys in Biohazard, so, needless to say, he has a lot of connections. Well, long story short, my guitarist's friend was talking to us about how he's unhappy with the band he's in, because they never want to break out of their style and try new stuff. The other guitarist in the band always shuts him down by saying "Why do you always try to play that complicated stuff!" and then goes into another simple hardcore riff. So, after a nice long chat between my guitarist and his friend, my guitarist comes to the conclusion that he would like his friend to be in our band. I get the phone call this morning, and I'm ecstatic. I wanted to jump through the phone and start jamming right away. I believe if he agrees to join our band, he'll be able to play at our show in Long Island by the end of the month, and he'll be able to help write more melodic parts, and finally WE CAN WRITE HARMONIES!!!!
