ok heres the message i got


Hey.

Right, we have.

The Dresden Dolls ~ Girl anachronism
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zKnPT38f64g

Fly Leaf ~ I'm so sick
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWIADZKU9dw

Paramore ~ Fences
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73y5sL7OI2A

My Chemical Romance ~ Bury Me In Black
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OIXhALQoHAU

The Demonstration ~ Bad Romance
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZT0TonelnY

All link's to the song's are above, so just copy and paste.

Keep in mind we are only doing these song's for our first practice so we can see how well we work together, these aren't song's we are going to perform, so I don't want any fussy-ness with the song choice's, cause there only for one practice.


i HATE the last 2, the MCR one winds me up because he's not even trying to sing and the bad romance one is the same... its just shouting

then i though "What Would Jesus Do?"... and since that didnt make any sense at the time i thought i would try the next best thing; "What Would UG Do?"

so yeah, man up and learn + tab them OR turn up at the practice and say "yeah i didnt learn them because they wind me up"

Jesus, I'd take any opportunity I could to have a band. Just because you dont like listening to it, doesn't mean it's not fun to play. Just do it man.

That.

The again, if its a band worth their salt, you'll soon be writing your own songs....
Unless your in High School. Then all you'll play are covers and have no stage presence. At all.


Maybe.

It might just be that those are the songs that most of the others know and would make it easier for the practise. If you turn up all like "Yeah man, these songs are shit so I didn't bother learning them", you may end up getting kicked out.

Bite the bullet, you may learn some techniques you never knew or maybe even begin to appreciate why they like those songs.

All in all you'll mature as a person and as a guitarist if you just learn them for the hell of it and make it look effortless, it basically shows the message that "If I can play songs that I don't like so well, then imagine what I would be like playing songs I enjoy!"

Just play it. It's supposedly only for this one practice.

And Fences is a badass song.

Also you're off topic. This thread is about Reva eating snowmen.

Don't think "What would Jesus do?". Think "What would Jimi do?" He'd take the song and make it his own (see All Along the Watchtower).

Sir, the contents of my mouth just blew all over my keyboard, desk, and part of my monitor. For the record, it was slightly chewed Keebler cookies and coffee slurry.

After thinking about it more, here's my thoughts:

- If you guys are just jamming in a basement for fun or something, I'd probably suggest some new songs to play.

- If your band plays gigs but sounds shitty doing these songs, I would quit.

- If your band plays gigs and sounds good doing these songs, I would stay just for the experience/being noticed (and possibly money?)

+1, if you show up thinking you're too good for those songs, you just come across as a **** that no one wants to work with.
#18
I'd send a message back asking if this is the type of music they expect to be playing even later on. Find out if you're on the same page (or even the same chapter) as the band at all. If they're not just tell them to find another guitarist and don't waste their time by turning up unprepared at the rehersal. If those songs were chosen because of the reason AnAngrySquirrel specified you should just man up.

FTW!

but seriously, call them up and tell them that the songs are shit (especially MCR), and if they want you to stay in their band, change them etc.

Stop being a baby back bish and learn them. Its supposedly just for practice anyways. And you're likely to pick up on some ideas that you wouldn't normally think of.

Just please don't be the douche thats like "These songz r suxx n i wont lurn them cuz i am gd at t3h gitarz and dnt wanna cuz dey r sooOooO sux!1!1!!1!!!1!!!1!!!1!!!1!!1!one hundred and eleven!!!"

I was in a band playing stuff i didnt like for over a year. Didn't benefit me at all. These songs aren't hard so you won't learn new techniques and unless your 12 you should already be able to play in time with other musicians. Ask the others if this is the general direction your band will go when they make stuff themselves. If it is and you don't like it then quit as its time wasted when you could be finding others who you'll end up sticking with.
An to those saying just play it anyway even if you don't like it, thats NOT what being a musician is about and is probably why there's so much shit about these days.
#24
What's with all the especially MCR stuff? People don't like that anymore?

this. find a band that doesn't drink Bacardi Breezers.

I'd man up. Just keep in mind that whoever sent you that thinks they own the band. Look at the last few sentances:

Keep in mind we are only doing these song's for our first practice so we can see how well we work together, these aren't song's we are going to perform, so I don't want any fussy-ness with the song choice's, cause there only for one practice.

Just because a band plays music you don't like doesn't mean it's crap. You guys haven't even heard his band, they could play those songs completely different to the originals. Stop being knobs. If you learn just metal, you're not going to get any outside influence and therefore, you're going to sound like every other metal guitarist out there. If you play a selection of music, you can take bits from each and create your own style. I think TS should man up and everyone complaining about the songs should shut up.

Noone said just learn metal. These songs will not benefit the guy in any way especially if he doesn't like them. By all means get lots of different influences but if i went off an learnt mika, kaizer chiefs, alphabeat an will young would that make me a better player?
i hate the phrase but you can't polish a turd. People should be encouraged to learn classics even if they don't like them but not this crap.
