#MusiciansAdvice

I don't give it often , but , here goes:

It's never too soon to give up on a bad idea (Musically speaking).

This is especially true of Drummers and Bassists since they handle such a critical role in keeping the heart of

the music alive, but , NO ONE ELSE is excluded either, sorry.-lol

I don't care how much you planned on being "hot" by playing certain flashy things or playing a certain way in

general , if it's not "locking" , you need to PARK IT----RIGHT AWAY!!! and move on *with* the music instead of

being against it...PERIOD!

Here are some examples:

1.Forcing sloppy Motown beats onto songs that require a lot more precision and clarity in order to unfold

correctly.

2.Forcing a hip-hop lag onto every song you play for the WHOLE SHOW or any one song where it's totally NOT

CALLED FOR.

3.Citing a bunch of legalism and political history in "defense" of any of the above. Remember: You're there to

make music , not to re-enact "The Trial Of The Century" , aight?

When you meet up with other players , be mindful that there's an unseen "circle" you've become a part of once

it's assembled and that you shouldn't disrespect it by bringing anything into it that is foreign or discordant

in anyway.

THAT'S THE GIG!
