Now I realize if I'm not playin Lynard Skynard and Eric Clapton it may be hard to find players. But here's my timeline. Thanksgiving last year - meet everyone at a resteraunt - set up practice. This is a 5 peice with female lead. Day of 1st practice - lead guitar's mom died week later - lead guitar found a working band start audition guitar players week later (when there was suupposed to be a lead guit auditon) - drummer gets busy at work auditons for drummer and guitar begin take a few weeks off for christmas and new years find drummer and lead guitar plaeyer February - drummer decides now to tell me that he will miss half the weekends in the late winter / early spring. This is prime gigging seasin in MI. On to drummer #3. drummer #3 can only handle 5 songs a week, but he learns them well so I put up with it for month until... after being very upfront with everyone about what music we are going to play, drummer now decides he doesn't like the setlist and wants major changes, to whch we refuse and he leaves 3 weeks ago - find drummer #4. he learns all 30 or so songs in 1 week yesterday - lead guitar player who is unemployed right now takes a job at a resort in the Carribean and will be gone all the month of June. Onto finding another guitarist.
