Re: Guitarist rant
Same story with my band too mate, it's actually making me think that my band could be terrible. Rhythm Guitarists? Let downs :/
our Rhythm guitarist (who is me and the lead guitarists best friend) recently got a girlfriend too and he's been like "Oh, I feel ill. I can't make it to practice" when he is fit enough to stay on the phone for 4 hour with his girlfriend and cover Noah And The Whale songs on guitar.
This thread is really like my band too. I'm actually going to have a word with him right now, he's not practicing any of the songs we want to do because Noah and The Whale is more important to him. If he keeps it up, he'll be packing his guitar in it's case and leaving :) that's fine with me, and we'll be searching for a new guitarist.
Mapex, Sabian, Vic Firth.
