Playing in a band

Posted by Jethro Aberdeen on Monday, September 13, 2010

I've been playing a band lately, and it's been a few years since I've done that. It has it's challenges and difficulties as well as it's positive attributes. You can't help but grow as a musician, in a band situation, both musically and as a person. You will be stretched, in many ways and forced to practice on solos, and intros etc. and hone your backup skills. It was on my bucket list as well, to play in a Gospel Bluegrass band. I would like to play in a band that has a good mandolin and flat picker guitar player, but at this point I'll settle for what we got. Right now I double on mandolin for the slow songs, which the banjo wouldn't be appropiate anyway, so I have been working on both. But it's fun and work at the same time, which is hard to beat.
