Okay guys, This past Sunday, I got to meet and jam with my new band... We are working on orginial that our lead singer (female) writes as well as covers tunes Well, being that it was our first time together we sounded mediocore and NOT TIGHT AT ALL..... The problem we have a couple of gigs lined up already...One is on May 29th that is less then two weeks away...None of us are great musicians, but with some time practice we have a lot of potentials.... To be honest I don't think were ready and the second guitarist (who plays lead) doesn't think were ready.... However, the other guitarist (who plays) rhythmn guitar (kind of the leader of the band) says "no one will know if we make mistakes".... I really don't like that kind of attitude at all....Believe me guys I don't want to play gigs if we sound medicore.. WE ARE NOT TIGHT... The rhythmn guitarist told me that people aren't here to see us play there here to see the star (which is the lead singer) Well, isn't the band supposed to make the lead singer sound good? In my heart we have two many guitarist the lead singer plays rhythmn guitar (while singing) then we have a rhythmn guitarist, lead rhythmn guitarist and me playing bass and we DO NOT have a drummer yet as we are having to play the gig with a drum machine.... In my opinion too many guitarist makes the band sound muddy..... Guys, I don't mean to sound all negative, but I USED to play guitar (lead and rhythmn) and I am a perfectionist (maybe that's my problem) and I know what I want to sound like and I don't just want to be another mediocre band playing gigs..To be honest sometimes I think we sounded less then mediocre... I want to stay in the band, but I don't want to play this gig... The second guitarist who plays lead feels the way I do, but doesn't say anything...I already expressed myself and that is when I got the lecture on how were not the stars and that it is all about the singer.... Any advise? We meet again tomorrow for rehersal? It almost feels like were cramming for an exam..... Thanks Kalo!
