How often does your band need to rehearse to get a set down? I have joined forces with a singer - guitar player. He has a couple sets of originals. I like his style of playing and the songs are great too. We play with a drummer, but he is more of a fill in than a permanent member. I have recordings of the songs that I play along with to prepare for rehearsal. The BL is of the opinion we need to play as often as we can. I have a family and full time job so my time is precious to me. I think I can nail my parts on my own time and once a week should be enough for the band to put it together. Especially now since we are still formative and have no gigs lined up. (maybe an open mic in a week or so) I kind of think the BL likes to get out and hang with the boys, which is fun but I can't do three nights a week. What say you?
