Where I live in Maine there isn't much of a music scene, a problem I'm sure some of you also have. But when I find somebody to potentially start something with they aren't that great technique wise or that good with the theory side of things (some say they don't care to know either). Also, I don't claim to be a pro. So I'm kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place. The big thing to me is timing, I like precision; musicians that all arive at the downbeat at the same time. Then again, I want to get out and be part of creating something and collaborating. So should I make some sacrifices on my standards or wait for the right people.
