About two weeks ago I posted a really excited message that I was forming an 80's band after responding to an ad. So, I learn all the music, plan to travel an hour to this kid's house, and last night, he calls and says 'hey man, the drummer and singer can't make it, you still wanna hang out?' For an hour's drive and $20 in gas EACH WAY, I'm not just going to hang out, and he was sort of offended. But I explained to him, and he agreed that it was a waste of time and money just to hang out. He wants to try again next weekend, fine by me. We've decided sunday afternoons work best for everyone, and our first scheduled rehersal, half the "band" can't come to. Then the guitarist, the kid forming the band, says he may not be able to be part of the band afterall, that he really needs to improve himself as a guitarist. I'll admit I'm not the best bassist, but I know for sure the best way to learn to play is to PLAY, especially with other people. This may not be the fun, fairly easy band afterall and may be more trouble than it's worth. But hey, I just want to PLAY! Whattya'll think?
