They're getting there but they don't have the type of dedication I want, the guitarist doesn't want to learn chords because they're "Hard" and the bassist thinks he's god's gift to rhythm (He is completely incapable of playing in 3).

These guys asked me to be in a band with them. I don't know what to do... I love playing with people and they're fun guys but they are NOT serious...

What would you guys do? I told em I'd be happy to jam but then made some BS excuse about my schedule and not knowing if I would be able to for a while.

Thanks in advance,

IAN! hold the phone man. if i know anything.. but bs excuses like that get you deeper into trouble

be honest.. it might be brute blunt and harsh but they might understand.. tell them that you dont think that theyre right for your musical style, taste or even musical approach..

if theyre your friends theyll understand man

hope this helps

Howard Roark is my main man.
