Re: Why is it so hard...
That's why they say some of the best musicians are sitting at home. Maybe they just gave up.
The ego stuff, not communicating, not working used to drive me nuts. I've never been the best drummer around, and cetainly not the worst, but I cared, I got along, I was positive and ready to learn. I saw that in very few band mates.
Way back, I constantly said, we need to be recording these practices. I guess it was just too much to ask. Besides, I was just the drummer.
If I gig again it will be with an established band or I'll run an ad saying this is what I'd like and this is what I won't accept.
