Here's a clip from yesterdays session of our version of Caravan - it's sounding overall a lot more how we intended, but we feel the guitarist seems to be a weak link & will more than likely be replaced by someone more suitable in their guitar style. John is a great guitar player, but for someone with letters after their name from studying jazz at college, you'd have thought he would be able to wig out using blues pentatonic scales. We're after recreating an authentic sound, but his bebop scales don't cut the mustard. We have asked & told him to play these scales time & time again, but it seems he can't even remember a head from one week to the next, let alone be able to improvise. I hate feeling this frustration.

Hmmmm, an age old pickers problem and a band will never be better than their weakest player. Sadly, in Y'alls case it's a lead instrument. Back when I was gigging a friend told me to always try and play with pickers that were better than I was because they will make you a better player. Maybe that's his thinking also - - - - could you squeeze him a little harder to get him to branch out before having to look for another to fill his place?

It'll feel a lot better when you get the right guy. I had a long-standing musical friendship with a guy that was just not interested in playing his instrument (bass) or the type of music we were playing (metal) He wanted to be a rock and roll guitarist and eventually we went our separate ways. Musically it was the best thing that happened to us. Best of luck in finding your next guitar player.

BTW, call me old-fashioned but past the rare harmonic minor, I can't help but love playing the pentatonic when it's time to write a solo.

These are wise words. Hopefully the guitarist has room to grow and isn't a "my way is better" type.

Speaking of guitarists, I have a little joke:

How many guitarists does it take to change a lightbulb?

100. 1 to do it, and 99 to say they could do it better

Funny, I think I know most of those guys. We had an open mic on stage one night. A lady wanted to sing and she had brought her own sheet music (this was a Suthern Honky Tonk OK) - - - she asked our lead guitar player if he could read music and he replied "yes Mam I can but not enuff to hurt my playing"

Hahah, that was a good chuckle right there. It may sound silly from a guy that spends most of his time playing heavy metal - but I would absolutely love to play guitar in a honky tonk band at least just once.

Lots of fun especially if you use the KISS principle - - - we were blessed to have a friend and lead guitarist that could play Van Halen, ZZ top, Pure COuntry or Jimi Hendrix at the drop of a hat. His SRV and Skynard was awesome.

Here's a clip from last weeks session, a basic groove called 'Bring Down The Birds' by Herbie Hancock.

Trying out a different guitar player this week, so we'll have to suck it & see.

I couldn't really hear the guitarist in this clip. You're great on bass and the keyboard player's defiantly in the groove!!
Love the cigarette / bong cough at the end , lol.

Love the 'I will survive' lyric change. In your other clip !!!

My brother and I had some weird concept of 'CRUDE COVERS' where we would put different lyrics to popular/any song, crude as imaginable, and sing em,,
just go sick! , a lot of fun....!!!!

I would've posted the link but I'm not sure it's appropriate for this forum. I'm glad I made you laugh.
