    I hear this phrase alot,but did anyone stop to think that maybe the bass player created that simple 4-note riff?That the guitar player might just be following the bass player?

    Thats how it is in my band, I write the music, the guitarist listens to what I say, and what I play.

    Did anyone here ever stop to think that WE WHINE TOO FREAKIN' MUCH ON THIS WEB SITE!? Please! Who cares who respects who? Do you do this to feel the rewards of others? Do you play only for the satisfaction of a compliment?

    Quit whining about what non-musicians think! Play what YOU want to play. Play what you're heart tells you to play. Keep learning, keep evolving, and keep becoming a better musician. If you put your focus toward these things, you'll get 10x the reward that you originally looked for in other people's sentiments.
