    My band has been slacking A LOT the past few weeks and we had a band meeting about. We went from maybe an hour long practice around goofing off time to 3+ hours of non-stop focus. It's great and in just the two practices that we've gotten seriouse we've already got a demo ready to record. I'm excited about this.

    However, I'm also a little iffed because I tend to be the only one that remember's my parts, We've had to start a few songs over from scratch becuase the drummer and the guitarist had forgotten what to play. I started to be non-chalant with the guitarist and get him to write his parts down "hey could you tab that riff for me. I want to tinker with it at home and see if I can add some fills" Although as for the drummer... I'm not quite sure what I can do. We only have a 4 track recorder so sometimes it can kind of be difficult to get all we need recorderd (I wouldn't mind recording the entire practice sessions just incase someone gets inspired and a really good song emerges and is forgottne immediatly.)


    Also how do you add soundtracks to forums?

    At least record the completed songs and put them on CD(or whatever) and/or a download service so everyone can access them.

    Tabbing out the tunes can then be done by anyone in the band.

    No excuse for forgetting the finished songs.

    How about a rehearsal where only the finished songs are practiced? A review and revise type thing.

    Record everything. Like you said, you never know when something cool pops out.
