iam 25 and have been playing guitar for the past 5 years. i decided to take music as a profession. when i found out i can do it better than anything else i can do. since then i;ve been working hard. actually i was doing my bachelors in multimedia, studied only 1 year in an Arts college. and decided to leave my studies because it was getting difficult to achieve as a musician what i want to achieve, and also i don't belong to a rich family and a few basic equipment i got on a loan. so i took a big risk and i believe i did the right thing although my parents especially my father was against me first only bcoz they thought i just do it for fun. but he changed his mind after a friend of my father sugessted him to do what i want to do, i sat and discussed to my father about my future plan and they really support me now; actually in our society music and musicians are not given the respect they desereve i know thats why they were worried. many still say that i should not have quit my studies but that doesn't make me feel that i have done something wrong becoz i take music as a subject and this is what iam studying. But what i want to ask is that i have a band of four members yet. that include. 1 me (25 yrs old) 2 vocalist (22 years old) 3 drummer (28 years old)- new recent comer 4 bassist (21 years old) of them all i am the only one whose relying on this profession. others are studying. i know the vocalist personaly for five years he's the most reliable among all and then comes the basist who is also a good person. he was brougnt in by the vocalist as both study in the same college. Drummer is the newcomer and he's a very very clever person . he want's the band going acoording to his directions. which is he wants to bring a couple of his known friends in the band a keyboardist or rythm players. especially because they are of his music taste he is also a wealthy person. before entering the band listened to our work and since then he has been so nice to us . while i want to keep the band maximum to 4 members, and others would be session players. and especially they should have the same interests and tastes as musicians. Even i , vocalist and bass player have different tastes but we manage it very decently . (while we three are familiar with this problem) why are we compromising in this situation ? because it's almost impossible to find a drummer even for the good bands in our city (country i should say). and hiring a drummer especially for recording and jamming , we can't afford that. all i need is a set of agreement or rules that i should put forward to all of them because i know my work and i'm doing it but someone elses's ignorance causes me trouble. i want to solve this problem fairly so we don't have a fight with him . my english is poor but i hope u will understand this.
