You and the bass lock in, and stay there. The guitar player, he may pull it together, he may not. Only time will tell.
It depends on how comfortable you are with yourself. You can learn a lot from playing with people worse than you, but you can learn a lot more with people better than you. If you feel you have a good sense of time, dynamics, and listening, I would recommend looking for better players.So with that, I need to know if it's worth working with him to get him in time, or if he is a lost cause? What are some suggestions to keep guitarists in time and making sure that if the measure calls for 4 beats, that he is not running eighth, quarter, or sometimes full beats over and being late on the count. I will need to do a better job of learning each 'part' of the song so I can stop him when it happens and break it down into pieces and work on just a few measures at a time, but any advice you have to help keep him in time would be greatly appreciated.
