It shouldn't really be about letting everyone in just because they want to be in a band. Let the band know you are serious and want to make music (presuming that is your goal with the band).

If there is a conflict of interests, leave. There'll be other bands, other musicians, other songs and other gigs.

oh thank god, I thought this was another "I am leaving GMC"-thread tongue.gif'


Whether you should leave your band or not is not something we can decide tongue.gif if you are not happy in the band, leave, but I don't think you should rush it too much. Try it out first, it might just work out. Just tell them that you shouldn't decide on a genre. Just start making some music and see how it comes out! Then you can listen to your song(s) and then figure out what genre you are playing. This way it comes more natural. And DON'T let people in your band JUST because they want to play in a band. Only take in new people if you need them, and if they want to make music.

If you want to progress in music business try to find a better band. If they are your friends - they will understand it wink.gif

If you really cant stand it any more, then leave. But give it some time, and maybe try talking with them about it

i just joined a new band rescently.. i think there are two important things with having a band.. chemestry with music, and chemestry out side of music.. my band and i are all good friends and therefore we respect eachothers opinions and things generally go smoothly.. the only problem with this is sometimes band practice turns into either stupid jams or video games.. but we are also musicians..

so long as everyone keeps up a musical caliber suitable of everyone else and everyone agrees in the band then all systems will be running..

in your case it seems like there are some conflicts.. people on different musical levels, and no clear view on what path you will take musically..

my suggestion = BAND MEETING!

get everyone.. even the new guy and sit down and don't get up until you know where you want to go.. what you want to play and if the new guy is capable.. my question is.. 3 guitars.. wtf.. my band has trouble keeping up with 2 of us (+ bass) don't over complicate things just because.. feelings are sometimes hurt by not letting someone in the band, or by disregarding someones opinion.. but these thing are nessisary to keep the group happy sometimes...

best of luck with your choice

Do some talking,smart one,it always helps.
But be sure not to continue without your will,

I also think you should speak with the other members to try and find a solution..
However, if they don't wanna listen to your viewpoints, you should leave! smile.gif

If you're not happy, and your bandmates are not willing to change to make you happy with the band, leave ASAP.
