Ok. So, my main band has been a band for about 2 1/4 years. We were a four piece up until a few months ago, when we added another member. We just met him this school year, whereas the original 4 members (me and three other guys) have been friends for a long time, even before we formed a band. I jammed with the new guy a few times back in the winter, and then someone else the band who also knew him suggested we add him, and since I already knew how good he was, we let him in. He's really talented, and a really cool guy. But I think he doesn't feel "included" in our band yet; today, we had about a 2 hour practice, and then we decided we'd go hang out and walk around town (we do that pretty often after practices). He did the same thing that he's done several other times: tell us he has homework or something, or not even give us a straight answer, and then leave and go home. I have a feeling that he doesn't feel like a full member of the band. We treat him and consider him a full member but I don't think he feels that way, because we (the "original" band) are all really close. What can we do to really make him feel like he's a full member? He's super cool and a great guy, we just need some way to get him to feel really included.
