Arrrgh! I'm sick and tired of learning songs for my cheezy cover band only to have them fade away without ever getting worked into the set. I don't mind it when they're songs I don't like so much, but it irks me when I work up songs I'd like to do, that took me more than 60 seconds to learn - Moondance comes to mind and most recently Smooth by Santana/Rob Thomas. The same guy to weasel out of both of these songs was very keen to work up yet another Allman Brothers/Gov't Mule song at practice today (Rockin' Horse). I've yet to see a song of theirs he wouldn't be willing to learn, no matter how complex and challenging. Well, we'll just see how long it takes the old bass player to learn that one, eh... BTW - just sharing a bit of humor - lest anyone think I'm suggesting that this is an effective, functional strategy for dealing with band issues!
