Hi, ive been playing guitar for around 4 years now and im pretty confident in my abilities but whenever i think about getting a band together i worry about being the weak link due to never having been in one before and not being able to synch up to the drum beat/rythem section etc, can anyone suggest any lessons or routines i can use to get myself more comfortable with this kind of thing before i take the plunge into finding some other musicians?
if you have an RP150 Processor or something similar, use the drum machine thing. If not, just use a metronome to practice keeping rhythm and stay on beat with everything. Or if you're doing covers, play along with them.
Backing tracks, metronome but theres no way to learn like just doing it.
Backing tracks are useful, but you'd have more fun just putting a band together and doing it that way. None of you are instantly gonna click and become sync'd up straight away. You are only as strong as your weakest link, so just go out there with a band and make the band as a whole really tight.
cheers, much obliged for the help
