Going to give my notice tomorrow after rehearsal, promising to play that last booked gig. I'm wanting to go in a different musical direction, get back to rock/R&B/Motown/blues. I truly wish those guys success and look forward to attending gigs as a spectator who loads up the tip jar. ------- segue ------ Ok, I'm done with playing Wagon Wheel. I'm done with telling you where to plug your XLR cables into the mixer after I've placed a laminated chart next to it. I'm done with hearing the drummer ask "How does this go?" I'm done with a rhythm guitarist getting tanked and forgetting lyrics mid-song. I'm done with getting to load-in early so that lead guitarist can make a fashionably late appearance. I'm done with providing batteries, extension cords, mics and cables to those who can't be bothered to look out for themselves. I'm done with putting up the charts so that you can criticize, play a different arrangement, then not update them. ---------------------- tl;dr: It's time to move on. To playing music I like and before I become *that guy* who expects more than the others are willing to deliver. It still feels weird.
