Mine, not mankind. Last Saturday, the bandleader and drummer asked if their friend, who plays bass in their part time band, could sit in for a couple songs. Of course I said yes, but afterward, and since then, I have a uneasy feeling about it. We had a really large crowd, and he was introduced as a founding member of Foghat(just our usual joking), but it creating quite a buzz. The two songs he played had everybody dancing, those two usually do, but this was the biggest crowd and I sat and watched, not part of it. It affected my concentration the rest of the night. When we first formed this band, the drummer wanted this guy to be the bass player, and he is damn good btw, much better than me, but since the bandleader and I were already in a band playing together, I was already in. I'm afraid that the band noticed how good they sounded with him, leaving me ????? Will they choose the good of the band over friendship? We're just a cover band, and it's not like I'm holding us back. I've worked hard over the last two years learning songs, being the first one to every practice, providing the PA, never being the cause of a gig cancellation. I'm afraid to bring this up to them, you know, kind of like asking your girlfriend how's the relationship going. Any thoughts? This happens all the time, right?
