so, i joined a new band and it's going very well, the studio is booked for july to record a new album and new channels of promotion have been introduced. so far so good. but, why, lord oh why, do gui****s feel it's necessary to bring two marshall 4x12 to the rehearsal studio? why are gui****s not able to play at lower volumes without complaining about their 'sound'? if he played a stereo set-up i'd understand, but he doesn't, it's about being blown away. another example would be the recording procedure. i was told that the previous bassist had to plug straight into the desk, while the gui**** gets another room where he can put his two stacks and all of his midi gear, because he can't play without 'his sound'. it's fine by me to record straight into the desk, but i don't see the logic behind it. generally, these guys play at insane volumes and it's getting on my nerves, i did point it out sometimes but i'm the new guy so i don't want to be difficult (the band has been together for 10 years already). the other 'problem' is the keyboardist. his left hand is very heavy and gets in my way imo, and then he tells me he can't hear my lines. well, duh, he's blasting it out while i try to keep a constant playing level. anyone here with similar problems who knows a solution?
