Has anyone got any stories / examples of getting negative feedback from other band members, but to their annoyance you’ve taken it as a compliment? I once had a rhythm guitarist in a hard rock band tell me “You’re too funky, Matt! Too funky!” Thank you for that. Sorry for not mindlessly sticking to the root note. On another occasion and a different band. After getting in and finding my feet with this new band. I started bringing a lot of riffs & song ideas to rehearsal. Until the guitarist pulled me to one side and asked “why can’t you just go back to writing the f’n basslines?” Hey I can’t help it if the rest of the band like my stuff better than yours.... Yeah, I didn’t last much longer in either band after those two conversations! Although my friends did call me ‘Too Funk’ for ages after the first incident.
