With reference to my thread title above, I was wondering if any other members here had come up against this old chestnut. The scenario is:the new band you just joined starts banging on about their previous guitarist and how he/she played a certain song so much better/quicker /fast/differently. I have had this happen to me on at least three occasions. At our last rehearsal our bass player talked about how the guitarist in his previous band strung out the solo sections of All Your Lovin by John Mayall/Otis Rush. I'm a bit sick of this situation cropping up all the time - any advice?
