Why do I always seem to get with musicians who are technology challenged and just plain lazy?? All have high speed internet. I constantly send mp3's and most keep saying "I don't know man, it won't play for me!" How hard is it to save an mp3 to a folder and play it using WMP (or other program)??? Secondly, as we progress, we start to see the weak links and you can tell who's actually listening to the provided songs (on cd or sent mp3's) and actually learning and memorizing the tunes! Rehearsals are a struggle for me. The band has a lot of potential but it seems it's gonna take a while for us to get to real gigging form. The guitarist is WAY behind and is starting to hold us back. We just got a keyboardist and he picked up a lot of stuff right away. I honestly don't think the guitarist is going to last when he realizes he being left behind! The male vocalist is also slow at learning material. If things don't progress a little faster and these guys don't start stepping up their games, I'm gonna suggest to the band leader to start replacing folks! We've been at this since late Spring and now it's September. It's not supposed to take this long! I've been in many bands that are ready in a months time! Ugh! Very frustrating!
