...devote to your band. As apposed to your own personal goals. I was playing in a cover band and once I learned the song, I never practiced them unless we were rehersing. I practiced what I wanted, scales, jazz tunes, etc. I'm now part of a new band that is forming to play mostly original material. I'm excited about the project, but I worry that it is going to demand ALL of my practice time...writing and perfecting our songs? Maybe that is okay for a while? Any thoughts?
