It's been 3 years since I've done this. Kind of sketched out about it. What if I suck?
How social of you!
And you won't suck. Just enjoy the ride. Heck, what if they suck?
Just make sure to get the first and last note right. Somewhere in the middle somebody else will probably mess up.
Hey, I'm technically a millennial. Playing in a room with people is pretty crazy for us.
I am not sure what that means, but regardless, the day I will let a label and generic expectations affect my fun hasn't arrived
People of my generation get knocked for having no human interaction, and from a musical standpoint being stuck behind a computer and using GarageBand for everything. I can't say the stereotype is completely unearned, but I'm just poking fun. I'm more of a Gen X'er in spirit, hence the self-deprecation.
nothing better. enjoy!
I see... well, I wish you musical satisfaction and plenty of happiness in your heart throughout the gig
If you suck, you'll know what to work on and will probably suck less next time. And if you suck, what's the worst that can happen? There really aren't any consequences that matter. Just have fun!
Go have fun!
You will be fine and give yourself credit for going out and jamming with others.
Maybe someday I'll play with real humans, but for now I have to play with a drummer
You will! Enjoy sucking, and use it productively!
Like riding a bike. You got this. Have fun!
The 'suck' will sort itself out......
I'm finding that "actual" human beings are probably the best kind to play music with....
Just concentrate on what you're doing, make sure you're timing is good and hope for the best. I'm sure if you make the odd mistake, nobody will care too much.
Most bands starting out do, and that's the beauty of it. One day, everyone shows up to practice, and it doesn't suck anymore. Those are the best days of being in a band, IMO...when the music finally clicks.
Have fun, and best of luck to you!
Awesome!! This could be you soon!
Be wary of these humans........they have been known to do some very strange things and make some very unusual sounds.
I know this because..............I am one of them.
So an update...I did suck! But so did everyone else. Then we played again yesterday, and it was better. We're writing material, so it's not about learning songs so much as gelling again, this is a band I played with a couple of years ago but we're starting from scratch.
Main issue is amp compatibility. My Princeton Chorus isn't really much of a match for the other guitarist's Twin. I decided to play clean tones for the most part so we're not fighting for space so much, but it's still an issue. Outside of one of us getting a different amp, any suggestions for making that work?
