    Same thing with a guitarist that doesn't noodle when you're trying to say something about a part.

    LOL, correct, and I posted this to the band's FB page, instantly someone tagged their drummer, so I'm going to have to point out the obvious it looks like...

    EDIT: Fixed it on the bands FB page with:
    If your bass player doesn't noodle as soon as someone starts talking, is he even a bass player?

    If your guitar player doesn't play half the solo for the next song in the break between songs, is he even a guitar player?

    If you vocalist doesn't miss his cue because he's looking lovingly at himself in a mirror, is he even a vocalist?

    I'm just glad we play punk and don't have a keys player...

    UPDATE: So the guy who tagged his drummer has now tagged the rest of his band... I suspect I've found the punk keys player...

    If your bass player doesn't constantly slap in a ferocious but unrhythmic manner between songs, is he really a bass player?

    Only if he or she only slaps the open E string repeatedly whilst the drummer occasionally hits the kick drum for no reason
  6. My band is a four piece. So how is it we often have three conversations going on in the room during practice?

  7. Yes, annoying but it was pointed out to me, I have been annoying!
    What? wadda mean. Out of an unconscious habit, I lightly play the beginning of every next song before it starts, just so I'm ready and in pocket. Last two drummers have complained. And I agree, don't noodle or give away the song before the band starts it. I have no idea when and where I picked up that habit.
