I got to practice with a drummer Sunday for the first time. It was cool, except that it was hot. Really hot. I live in Iowa, and we were practicing in his garage/shed and it was so humid my hand stuck to the neck. It was at least 85 degrees, plus the humidity. The drummer, a friend of mine, is in a band, and I really want to get in it, but they have a bassist, and they won't kick him out even though he sucks, and he's obnoxious. From what the drummer tells me, the basist just started playing, and the guitarist in the band is so arrogent that he doesn't want a bassist that might steal the spotlight (not like I would, even though I do have a pretty bass).
