I think I'm getting ready to quit my band and I'm wondering the right way to do it. I started a thread a little while ago about it, but basically I really like the guys in the band and how focused and dedicated everyone is, but I cannot stand the music we play. I'm the bassist in a hard rock band and I don't listen to this type of music. It's getting to the point where weekly 3 hour practices are starting to become no fun at all. Plus they want to start writing more originals and I have such a hard time writing things in this style. I like groove and syncopation not hard rock emphasize the sh*t out of the downbeat stuff. It's just not my style. Anyway what's the best way to do this? People in the last thread recommended talking to them and saying that they have x number of months to find a new bassist then I'm gone. We have a gig at the end of July and that's it.... last one was months ago, but anyway. What's a reasonable amount of time to stick around? I don't want to short them, but frankly I'm not having any fun anymore. We did just record two demo songs with a guy who knows what he's doing so that should help them find another bassist. They did have to search for a long while before me, but oh well. It's just not enjoyable anymore.
