Our drummer is okay live and at rehearsals, but when we go to studio he takes a loooong time to get good takes, and even when we got the best one he had, there were still a couple mess-ups. We'd like to use a session/studio drummer for recording our e.p to speed things up, but how do I broach the subject with him so there's no bad blood? The (phenomenal) guitarist and him are brothers so that makes it tough as well. I take awhile to lay my vocal track down because I'm not the best vocalist (but I am the lead singer) so he could say the same about me, but you can change the drummer without necessarily changing the sound of the band, not so much with the vocals. Thoughts? Opinions? am I a bad person?
