any time at practice that we listen to an ipod to go over a new song why do guitar players insist on strumming along their parts with the guitar volume on?? it drives me nuts, im trying to hear my parts and all I hear is them playing live, and usually incorrectly over the ipod. cant a guitar player play an electric guitar with the volume off? I can just listen to a drum part and get it without actually playing, is that impossible on guitar? every band ive been in and listened to an ipod a practice always gets stepped on by live guitar noodling....sorry, this has just ben bugging me for about 6 years.
