So I've been playing in a band for about a year now and things are looking very good in general. It is extremely hard for me to work with the other members of the band due to a lack of music theory knowledge on their part. Also, I joined this band after they were "established" an they seem to look down on me and my ideas because of that. Also, the guitarist seems to think he is the greatest musician in the band even though I have more knowledge about music, which is only a little bit compared to some but is a pretty decent amount for my age. I have missed 2 band practices already purely because I didn't want to go and deal with them. They are closed minded about modern music and insist on playing stuff that sounds like its from the 70s (not necessarily a bad thing but it is not the best way to appeal to people of our generation). So if you were in my place what would you do? Quit? Stay in? Also they are my friend so if I quit it might add some more tension then their already is in our relationship. Ps Thanks for reading this all the way. I tried to be brief so that's why it may sound a little choppy.
