Re: Tentitive "band" problems
I've studied music for a very long time, first as a hobby and for the last three+ years as my main occupation. Usually I get to play with people with a similar or greater knowledge of music, but whenever I get to play with un-schooled players, I get the pleasant feeling of not being able to predict their playing. They have their own take on their instruments and I like to help and encourage them the best I can, but quite often they do just fine without any help. Their lack of knowledge might make conveying new musical ideas a bit trickier, but that doesn't mean they are incapable of understanding, learning and eventually playing them.
