I facebooked him to ask if he was up for practice tomorrow and he said "actually I'm quitting, nothing personal I just don't like the style of music"

wtf? he went to two practices and was learning the songs. could have mentioned that sooner dude.

this is the second bassist we've gone through... the other one quit via text message.

anyone else have really lame quitting experiences?

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

Do band practice anyways. I bet you don't hear any difference without him.

I quit an old band once to join this other band. The first band just wasn't working out. When I told them they pushed me to the floor and proceeded to kick the shit out of me. Then, in the new band I was originally the drummer. First they decided to kick me off drums and put me on bass, which I was okay with, but then they decided to just kick me out altogether. I guess I'm just un-fucking-lucky.

Well, they are still close friends of mine, and I know they were just kind of messing with me. Mostly because one of our running jokes between us was that I was the skinniest one of us and quite obviously the weakest. Still though, some of those kicks were pretty hard.

i just said it was lame, i didn't say it was the end of the world.

and we haven't had practice for a couple weeks, so i just feel like he could have said something sooner. i doubt he came to the realization that he didn't like our music the second before i messaged him.

Quote by zchavez09
excuse him for giving it a try before saying he didnt like it

This, dont be a little bitch TS, he went to TWO PRACTICES, you act as if he had been a part of the band for 2 years. He decided to give you guys a try, then decided he didnt want to continue to make the kind of music you were making. You cant blame him for having his own musical taste, one thats not exactly like yours.

Apparently your music isn't that great (or style rather) and you're too whiney to talk to in person....just being honest with you.

I'm doing you a solid, man...

actually we don't sound anything like most of my favourite artists. we're progressive metal with elements of black metal, nu-metal, and post-rock.

I'm a bassist in a band, & I was thinking of quiting... But I thought, if I do that, I probably won't actually get anywhere else by myself, seeing as though, I'm relatively lazy & keep forgetting to ask people to jam & things

Yeah, maybe. I'm nowhere near as good as I'd like to be.

Although, the only people in the band who ever actually did anything was the lead guitarist, (who was the one who proposed the idea to kick me out in the first place), and me. The Rhythm Guitarist never showed up for practice, and the drummer never helped write. I thought we actually had something going, and we always had some fun at practices. I don't really get what went wrong.

Elements of nu metal, post rock, and black metal? Not to be a prick but i woulda bounced too that sounds like a ****ed up mix
#36
uh, 2 practices is NOTHING in terms of a band's 'life span'
and if your bassist doesnt like that kind of music why should he be forced to play it?
