talked with band leader on the phone after two rehearsals with his reggae band. and in the end i stopping play with him. the leader/creator/singer/guitar player, is a young dude who put out his first independent cd few weeks ago. he expected me too learn all his tunes note to note with every little nuance and know it from memory from the first rehearsal.. and mimic every little thing that the former bass player did with them. and for free no money and fuel on me. (and fuel is very expensive here) and also no readable charts.. played with the band acoustic local radio show after only one rehearsal that was very nice and positive. but second rehearsal was disaster. it was at noon at the hight of the heat, at very ugly and dirty studio and than this musical argue had came out.. i playing with some other gigs and much older than this dude with lot of experience so i'm not worried but its kind a boomer and i dealt with that attitude some other times before.. i can stand this attitude. some times people are so anal about the music and not letting player to bring himself and leave in a dreamland of perfection that its actually is a dictatorial. but always a little question i asking myself - maybe its me?
