I may have just done the stupidest thing imaginable for my (wannabe) musical career. I play for a metal band that has a good fan base, recieved minimal label interest and is regarded as one of the better local acts. When we were recording our demo last spring, our vocalist and songwriter/guitarist got into a fight which resulted in said guitarist's absence from recording. This absence, in addition to missing a lot of practices led to booting the guy. The band carried on playing shows without him, playing his material under the monkier that he came up with. Show by show we became less enthusiastic and our performances got sloppy. We somehow "acquired" a guitarist who began to lead us in a technical death metal direction, but the drummer and myself were not interested. We decided to get back together with the old guitar player and play stuff that we believe truly has promise. The guitarist is a good guy, but does have some demons to deal with. Anyways, ever since we dropped the other guys (vox and 2 guitars) the old guitar player keeps on missing jams. Because there is only three of us rent is higher and i just can't afford to not jam. I'm thinking that going back with this guy was not the thing to do, and am planning to quit by rent time next month if things don't improve. But this guy does come up with INSANE damn good riffs and people are interested in us. Should i stick it out, maybe find a cheaper jam spot and see this through or cut my losses? Im pretty sure of what im going to do, i just need to hear it from others.
