...after a couple of concerts, the guitarist/vocalist/founder all of a sudden became apathetic (sp) and stopped being interested in the band, so the band has rehearsed...get this... TWICE THE LAST MONTH!!! (Not counting my personal practice on bass) When the other guys appear to not care, to not send demos around or seek concerts, it seems to me the project is DEAD. Oh yeah the drummer left us due to personal problems. Lesson learned: Take the bulls by the horn. I relied on my band leader and he went in another direction. So I expect to do this one last gig and leave the group. How could I be such an @$$ and not shake things up?? Beats me. Now all I can do is reacquaint myself seriously with my bass and music. I plan on learning some guitar chords, practice bass like all the time with the help of the Orion demo program for drumbeats (yo!), and compose some songs and lyrics. Plus, I want to do the more energetic stuff. Oh yeah, I have all these downloads of lessons by LET'S GO and BLED AQUA to REALLY check out... ...but it sucks not having a band... though better than a procrastinating band that don't play. I could also train myself on playing while singing... SORRY I HAD TO RANT ABOUT THIS!!!!
