Hey Guys
Are you playing in a band or playing with different people?
I have been playing both .
But Now I have chosen to play in one band rather than playing here and there.
Because when playing with others I have to play different instrument eachtime
They say " Ok play lead guitar ,Play drums this time,play base, keyboard... "
I feel that I am to fill the blank of others. sad.gif
And the most important thing is that performance is not so good due to the lack of practise.I believe and have experienced that eventhough very talented people gather to play in a musical show ,if they have never practise together the performance looks like begginners' one.

So that I started a new permanant band with few of my friends and playing only with them ( Hopefully one instrument - lead guitar laugh.gif )

I'd really  like to know your ideas and experiences.

I play in a band primarily, but did some work outside too, and agree that practice is always very important in order to play everything perfect.

For me it is also the band, I have never really been a session guy. Bands have to grow together by playing together, practicing together, writing together, if you constantly play with different people you will miss this, even though new people can show you new things and give you new input too of course.

I think the best is to have a band and also be able to do some substitutions, that's the best way 'cos you can learn lot of things when you play with a different musicians wink.gif

I am composing songs to my future band... While, I am playing with different people. In this moment with a bassist's funk/soul instrumental band... something like Marcus Miller, I think.

Yea I think for a singer you need to do of your own to build up a identity otherwise  be called as  a band singer.
