: Ok... I am sure this is a topic many of us are familar with, and I am looking
: for some insight into how to handle the situation. I play in an original band,
: the lead guitar player is the sole writer, some of the songs are very, very good
: and areof the caliber to get radio play, and some of the songs are basically
: just crap, loud, overdriven guitar solos, no changes, etc...here are the issues
: i am dealing with.
: 1) When the drummer and I tell him that some of his songs just don't groove,
: and that nobody wants to hear 5 minutes of a screeching guitar solo,
: he doesnt listen.
: 2) His constant talk of making it drives us up a wall...
: 3) His constant complaints that we (me and the drummer) are not contributing
: enough practice time (right now two nights a week for 3-4 hours), and that
: we should be over there more are driving us up a wall. for the record, the
: drummer and i work and have other responsibilites ranging from family to prior
: musical commitmants, while the guitar player does nothing else but write and play,
: and the singer is mentally ill and does not work so has all the free time in the world.
: Bassically, the guy just does not listen, and does not realize the fact that
: we are all in our 30's with other commitments in life...argghhhh...sorry guys,
: but i just had to vent..
