Hello guys! Ok, after being in four bands that failed, I'm "starting" a new one. A little bit of background: I've been with the same two guys (guitarist and drummer) in the four bands (I had other projects on my own, but I've always had a project with them). The thing is that we are really close and good friends. The drummer is awesome and I wanted to form this new band with him and to look for more people. But I didn't really want the guitarist in the band. After talking to the drummer, he finally convinced me to talk with the guitarist. So we talked with him about the project. We wanted to take it seriously and we wanted to work hard. He said that he couldn't promise to be 100% focused, so we should look for someone else. So we did. After a while, I started to make audictions for more guitarist. So one day he called me and said that he would be interested in joining the band. I told him about the audictions and again about the project. I told him several times because we have already had many problems because he didn't learn the solos nor the songs sometimes and we had to refresh all the songs which was a waste of time. He promised me he will work hard. He is a really good friend and a really good guitarist. I finally gave him the chance to join. However, the drummer and I spoke and if he starts doing the same, we will ask him to quit the band. Am I crazy for giving him the chance again? So far, no problems. He learns all the songs for the audictions and works hard. But I still have this feeling that, at some point, we will have an argument. I hope I'm wrong this time. On the other hand, yesterday a girl came to try to join. We really liked her. She sings really well and she plays the guitar, so perfect. And she is cool to hang out with. However, the guuitarist says that her voice didn't really have the magic, or the spark. I agree with him, but the drummer and I liked her. It might be that he is really used to being with male singers that he finds odd to be with a girl. I don't know. We agreed on playing some more days with her. But we will try some more people in meantime. Although, I feel kinda weird for that. Like we are with her until we find someone better you know? Like not being honest. I don't know. I never had this kind of problems because I have always joined bands, not create one. What do you guys think?
