I'd roll with Plan B for the rehearsal, and maybe after a few songs, ask the band for feedback (did I play enough, too much, am I fitting in OK?). Then adjust accordingly.I have been asked to temporarily play in place of another guitarist who cannot play the band's upcoming scheduled gigs because of a medical situation. (He will recover and the gig is temporary)
I accepted. I will only have one rehearsal. We are playing rock, blues, country, rhythm and blues, and jam-band material.
I feel that I can adequately fill the hole, and can probably bring some more polish and variety to the set than what I have heard of their regular guitarist.
A) hold back, play tastefully in the background...?
B) Cut loose...and when it's my turn....try and really play it the way my heart feels it?
