I've posted before about my first band's woes, mostly a singer/rhythm guitarist who never practices and an unworkable song list. Been together a year and our grand total of performances added up to three open mics. Our lead guitarist, who I thought was pretty good, had just been off his game for while and then started saying he wants to just be in the background, not gig, and let someone else come in on lead. Singer/rhythm showed up to rehearsal for the second week in a row publicly announcing that he had not touched a guitar since our previous practice. So the drummer (who holds the keys to the practice space) and I talked yesterday, weighed options, and decided it's done. He emailed his resignation to everyone today. He and I will probably jam together some more and see about starting a new project together, we'll see. A lot of you reacted to my earlier threads on this telling me to quit already. Took a lot of time, but it's finally done. On to new things. Whatever they turn out to be. I'll start with the woodshed.
