little problem thats been bothering me - March 10th 2009, 07:18 PM

hey this may not sound like much but lately ive been really confused

well back in january i finaly got into a band i liked we practice like once played like 1 song then we havent done anything since

me and the guitarist try to talk but we are always busy with school
and its so hard to contact the drummer i dont know what to do i wanna get on with this band cause we have a vocalist now so its all together we just need to be organised.

i think my guitarist is pretty depressed aswell cause he keeps having trouble with his gilfriend and shit so its like i dont wanna put anymore pressure on him about it so i dont mention it anymore cause i want him to sort his problems out

i guess this is just an explination of how i feel im not quite sure what im doing with this band thing im pretty determined to do some gigs have some fun but im not sure if it will work out

your feedback will be much apreciated!

Hey Matt,

I think you need to talk this over with the members of your band. Ask them what nights/days they are able to practice and write them all down. Keep them updated and keep updated on their schedules to figure out times for everyone. Getting involved in this actually might help your guitarist get his mind off his depression.

It sounds like you are really dedicated to this band, so I still say go for it. If it turns out some people aren't able to practice anymore, it might be a good idea to find someone else to fill the part. Have a few back ups just in case.

Nat.

The great artists of our time are the ones who created something timeless. But it was never them defining it that way.
Everyone has a story. What's yours?

thanks for the support

i got in touch with the drummer and i spoke to the guitarist and vocalist and we are gonna start things in easter (which is in 3 weeks) the reason i couldnt contact my drummer was because he crushed his cell phone at work hahah and damaged his hand but he said it should be better within 2 weeks anyway thanks for the support strider much apreciated and i hope we will follow this whole band thing through and get some gigs to play

you never know i might be playing near some of you guys in the future haha
