I appreciate all the feedback from a group of fairly honest guitar players.I don’t think you ever said what the intention of the band is. That would make a big difference. If its all hometown backyard keggers and a few pub nights, thats a pretty different thing than if they are an aspiring touring act, and would seem to dictate your response.
I understand that no matter what, if the guy doesn’t have an ear or a clock, that might not be enjoyable or easy to play with, but at least he’s not on the bass.
The goal is paid gigs. The rodeos and fairs, some corporate functions and doing some sets opening for touring acts.
The singer/songwriter (who is extraordinarily talented...sounds like a cross between Waylon and Hank Jr) has many years of experience doing just this. His lead guitarist moved out of the area this year and this guy has been on as rhythm for about 2 years. They both know he cannot hack it alone.
Thats why I am there. I can. But they are keeping him out of loyalty and again, hes a heck of a njce guy.
But i dont think we need 2 electrics. Id rather have a steel player. Anyhow, its NOT MY project...but at the same time, I hate sounding less polished with 2 guitars than we could by eliminating a weak link.
Just pondering the ifs....
