My new band is terrific. Very open minded and friendly people. Our guitarist is not a big lead player. He plays some of the most beautiful melodies with some of the most obscure chords. It is so easy to put a grooving bassline to his stuff, and vice versa. But I used to catch alot of crap from people in other bands, etc. when I was in my old group because I played alot of root notes. I did this because our guitarist then played everything in Drop D was 10,000 effects going 100 miles per hour non stop. I mean, anyone else know what Im saying out there??
