Well...let's see... I tried out for the jazz band at the beginning of the year, I made it. While playing, the drummer and I hit it off, so we decided to form a band. I had a pal who despertly wanted to learn guitar after I told him I played bass, so he got a guitar. Then came the second guitarist, since the first one only played Blink 182, the second was far superior (even though he only ventured as far as RHCP.) After a couple jam sessions, came the first fault, the guitarist pulls of 'Eruption' Drummer-boy thinks it sounds cool, so he gets a guitar, and now the 2nd guitarist stops coming to practice. A new drummer comes, he's obsessed with Blink but that isn't important. Anyways, the same thing happens to me. I play 'The Awakening' and now the ex-drummer got a bass, and I've stopped coming. When I ask what is going on, the bassist said in this order: "Taylor (Name of 1st guitarist) thought you couldn't come, so he asked me..." I asked Taylor, this was untrue. Next it was, "You just don't come..." Need I point this one out? Now it was "We never jam becasue of the final exams, I had to study," even though he got his bass early May, exams aren't late June This kid tries to slap once he gets his bass, I don't need to say more... His finger style is an index-thumb pattern, he hits G with his thumb then A with his index. Even though the band is 67% Blink 'punkers' and the last 33% is a rich, backstabbing try-hard bassist. Doesn't even have the nerve to get good at one before he goes to the next. I think I'm gonna go break something. But he's gonna try out for the jazz band...atleast I profit a good laugh.
