: This is so frustrating, I just gotta vent......I joined a band about 2 months ago and last saturday we played our first party. The band had been together 8 months before I joined. At the "gig" the drummer was dropping his drum sticks, the guitarists were still screwing up the chords and when one of the guitarists broke her A string, she just kept playing...OUT OF TUNE and the whole song sucked after that. When there was a perfect oppertunity to end the song, they just kept playing.....man it was awful! I just recently got back into playing, but come on is this acceptable? Anyway, I am now on the hunt for another band. What do you guys think....should I have left? thanks for letting vent.....peace.....john

John,
In my opinion you definately did the right thing by quitting.It sounds
like the other guys and gals in the band aren't serious about music,but just
wanted "To be in a band" if you know what I mean.Twenty years ago(yes I'm
that old)the drummer in a band I was in blew up at rehersal one day screaming
"I can't stand the way Mickey(that's me)plays."When one of the guitarists
asked him what he meant,the drummer said "He sits down while he plays."
Can you guess that this band went nowhere? IMHO get out now,don't look back
take a little time to regroup your thoughts,and look for new musicians to play
with.I know it's not easy, but it's better than putting yourself through the
mental torture of trying to be serious with those who are not.

P.S. We're all here for ya brother.
