Long story short we lost our original drummer after tracking for an album, we play groove metal and he was more of a rock drummer but it still worked well. We then got a fill in drummer for a while but he moved country... so got a drummer friend we knew who was good to help us all last year... played a few gigs and was pretty much going to be permanent and redo more aggressive drumming for album tracks. He sends us all a message the night before practice that he has issues and needs to quit. As we are all mid 30’s and doing this socially seems hard to go through training a drummer up again plus we do want live drums / gig occasionally. So in the meantime... has anyone collaborated via correspondence without drums and worked it out ok? Our guitarist really wants to get back to writing but unsure how we move forward being drummerless and not willing to use sample tracks for new stuff.
