I’ve formed a band with my best mates at school and a guy in our year we really get on with. However, we’re kind of “floundering” at the moment because we need to learn our instruments better. I more or less got jumped into learning guitar (even though I prefer bass) but I am now really keen on learning lead or maybe rhythm.
I had a brainwave today. All my friends in the band and I go to Christian Union and my best friend’s friend’s older brother (sorry it’s complicated) runs it and is really good at guitar. She suggested I ask him to give me lessons after school because he’s really patient and a great teacher. However, I noticed him and the other girl who runs CU talking today to me and they told me they are also in a band with another sixth former (they are all Christians) but they’re missing a drummer and singer.
I was thinking of asking them if they’d want me to audition for them or something because they like similar music to me. However, I don’t know if it would be weird because I’m 2 years younger (I’m in Year 11) but I really get on with them. Also, my friends who I’m playing with now might be upset if we disband.
How should I deal with the situation? Should I maybe talk to my friends and see if it would be ok with them if I talked to the sixth formers and take it from there? I’m really unsure what I want to do at the moment because even though it’s fun playing with my friends, we have a long way to go before we’re gig ready and we’re pretty disorganised.
Cheers guys. XD
