hey in the past few weeks, we have had some gigs where people have come up to us and said "wow, I saw you guys six months ago and you are so way much better now!!" its a strange thing to hear, because you don't really hear your band getting tighter, more in tune with each other and becoming better performers week to week. a while ago, I posted a thread about my younger band mates having trouble dealing with problems at a gig - I pointed this out to them the other night, and they laughed. i am posting this thread just to give some of the younger bands out there some comfort - stick with it and you naturally get better!! Any other tb-ers got their own stories?
