Reminds me of Concert Band. Our section gets set up and ready to go, and then we sit for 5 minutes waiting for people to tune.
Yes, thank you!It took me a while, but I finally got our band to stop the "noodling"
I hated it. Both guitar players and the bass guitar player would just do it all the time.
They would argue that "we're practicing".
I kept telling them to practice at home. We're rehearsing!
I had to harp on this for 6 weeks straight, but eventually they stopped.
You are my nightmare.I have a habit of playing constantly unless we do actually want to discuss something important.
It doesn't sit well with a bass player in one of my bands but sometimes I think all he wants to do is sit and talk... and we pay good money for the studio hire so I like to get 3 good hours of drumming in, if that's what I've paid for.
Lately I've started playing rim taps and cross sticking so I can still tap away while other want to talk.
