The singer in our band wears his feelings on his sleeves. It seems like I can't ever give any advice, or even ask a question with out hurting his feelings. I only ask or say things that could only help out the band. Like "What's the point of making, and practicing a set list if you're going to change on stage?" or "why are you taking guitar/bass lessons, when you could be training with a vocal coach, not that your singing is bad but you could be more polished?" or "Why did you buy the new beat machine if you only want to use the presets?" He tends to settle for what is there instead of striving for the best in music. My only other problem with him is that if we happen to write a new song on the day of a show, there is no way that I can convince him that we shouldn't play the song at a show. He says "We should try the new material out on a live audience. I say try it out when it's more together and, you're not reading the words off the page." How can I convince him that this isn't a good practice?
