Hello fellow TB members, I'm in need of some advice of my current situation with my current (very first) band. I've been with them for four years since this past July, and all the great "plans" we had for this summer were shot. We all had high hopes of playing out at local shows and recording our debut album in a professional studio. Instead we're going to remaster our old two year old EP, but haven't meet up in two months. But somethings just don't work out and I'm aware that the guys in my band work and are going back to school in the fall. I completely understand if that's a problem with our band! And just today we were invited to play a local show by another band we talk to, and the other guys said we should do JUST cover songs, since we haven't practiced our original material and we wanted the experience of playing a gig. I opposed that idea because IMO, original songs would be a better choice to showcase what kind of band we are. But for me, the spark is gone and I'm becoming extremely bored with the lack of not meeting up and rehearsing for almost two months. It's a good thing I have a social life outside my band lol. But the thing is...I'm leaning towards quitting and finding different opportunities, but I'm generally a nice guy and don't want to hurt peoples feelings. So to the professionals who have done this many times I bet, what should I do that is a benefit to me? The other guys are serious and totally committed, but I have different ideas and just not feeling it anymore.
