Some of you might remember but for those who don't.....a while back our original band lost it's drummer so we got a friend, who IS a good drummer, to start playing with us, writing original music. But it hasn't gone well. He's a good drummer for covers but it turns out that he's just not creative enough on the original music....he just follows what we're playing.....AND he pushes the beat, too, which makes the music seem too fast, even when it's not. Three of us have talked and decided to take a break and figure out how to get our old drummer back, hopefully without hurting the feelings of our current drummer who is, like I said, a friend. For me personally all of my creativity was gone, just zapped so, for me, it was a matter of either taking a break or just breaking up, and we think that what we had with the old drummer is/was too good to let go. Anyway, like I said we're on hiatus right now, trying to figure things out, and our bass player jas already talked to our old drummer and he wants back in......he misses it, too. He's super creative and a GREAT drummer, too, and we've got to figure out a way to get back to writing songs with him again, again, hopefully without hurting our friend's feelings. I'm sorry to bring this old story back but I'm kinda really at a loss as for what to do....I'm thinking of quitting instead of hurting his feelings but I don't really want to do that. Any ideas?
No announcement yet.
