so yeah, we all like coheed and cambria, EXCEPT my bassist. he likes them but wont bother to learn any of their songs. so he keeps trying to do RHCP which everyone in our band likes EXCEPT me. well dont get me wrong i like them but i dont choose to listen to them. BUT if RHCP was a two guitar bands, hell i would give it a shot. but they arent. and we are. my band mates are idiots and unfortunatly their my friends . idk what to do about that they wont listen. the other guitarist goes...john frucitane or whatever his name is uses a technique where it sounds like two guitars. and im like show me two guitars. so yeah. NOTHING AGAINST RHCP OR JOHN F.
what do i do about this.

Pick something everyone feels comfortable playing?
Maybe focus on writing your own music?

In a band, it's necessary to make compromises, but petty squabbles can eventually bring down the entire group. It's not worth fighting over.

are you serious? How is this a problem, you just both do the rhcp rhythym parts. And you should be open to playing RHCP- its easy ****, you just play it. And your bassist should be open to playing coheed. Youtube Micheal Todd doing teen town. Also
In a band, covers are meningile. So what you can't agree on a few songs- whopedee do. Grow up and just play the god damn rock

Studio layering? Which you should have no problem with if you have 2 guitars.

Actually a second guitar player tours with the chili peppers. His name is Josh Klinghoffer. So they do have two guitarists.

He doesn't like Coheed? This one's easy. You have to murder him.

Who says you're only allowed to play in one band at a time?
Take a leaf outta Mike Patton's book...


I agree. me and the drummer are the only versitile people. its a problem because the other two arent. they wont budge off of rhcp. its rediculous. they dont listen to anything else.

You both sound like douchebags. Take a few hours and arrange a second guitar part. Who cares if you aren't both playing for 100% of the song?

Who's singing you? Because I can tell you lead singers don't play and just sing a lot of the time (having the guitar just hanging on them).

Also you guys seem so intent on covering Coheed, but can your singer even hit those notes?

Both of you play the same thing, except for solos where only one of you plays.

Chords I guess, look at the bass part and play chords to follow it.
