Figured I'd rant and see what your guys opinions are. Im playing the dreaded guitar in a band again. I know i dont like it either, it just happened this way. Anyway after a few monthes of woodshedding were finally getting a set together. I hadnt really been paying attention to our singers lyrics. Hes kinda a vetran of the local scene and has a proven track record. He left me alone so I wasnt going to make any suggestions about his song writing. The other day I started listening to his lyrics and they are sometimes kinda negative. This is a punk band, and he basically talks S%&T about other bands. Mostly famous bands but it doesnt make it any less wrong. Theres nothing I hate more than talking badly about someone else behind their back. I truely beleive music is an artform, and different stuff will appeal to different people. I asked him nicely not to do that but he kinda said, lyrics are my job guitar is your job kinda thing. How I do this more forcefully. I really like playing in the band, and the guys are really cool but im not happy about the situation Anyone have any suggestions?
