After playing with one guitarist for years I recently ditched him becuase he "could" only play his songs. By that I mean a couple of originals we wrote and his favs. I've been trying out for other bands and get the impression this happens a lot. Even if I have never heard a song I can put together a bassline that fits. Most of these guys can't do a Three Chord Monte to save their lives. Question, are they really that bad or is this a control thing. Kinda where the band is limited by the "Lead'" Guitar player? Leadership by riding the brakes. Is this common? It seems to be. How many loser does one need to go though to find a team player?
