So basically im in a band were only me and the drummer are committed.
the other guitarist and singer really don't try to get anything done all they do is
ass around.
so what would you in my position?
leave but then be stuck in the situation were you are bandless and maybe loss a friend or two.

or try to start something else with the drummer alone?

any advice would be good right now im pretty pissed and disappointed right now.

Kick them in the nuts.

Repeatedly.

But srsly: Tell them that if they aren't serious, you and the drummer will start looking for people who are.

Bandleading forum, brah. You'll get much more better answers there. Maybe not better, but more useful.

And I have the same problem as well. You can confront them and tell them they need to get their together or you and your drummer will go on doing other things without them. What I like to do is show my bandmates something to work toward to, like a gig, or something, and they tend to want to do it because they see worth in doing it. Only do that if they're really worth it. If they're a bunch of hacks, go with the first option.

Toughen the f*ck up and keep going, or find new band mates.

It's hardly rocket science.

Good communication in a band is vital to its survival. Bring this problem up to your band-mates and discuss solutions for it. If you can't work out something then your band is going to suffer from it.

Even if I was in a band, I would still find other musicians to start projects with. That's what you need to do. You might not stay in this band, so mind your options.
A callous exterior isn't an uncommon way of protecting ideals; it hides the idealists from the derision of fools and cowards. But it also immobilizes them, so that, in trying to preserve their ideals, they risk losing them.

+1 for talking.

Have you guys sat down and talked about the bands' direction and goals? do they know you want to accomplish some goals with this band?

A good way to get constructive feedback is to start up a meeting and as the question "what do you guys want to do with this band? I, personally, would like to .. etc etc"

don't be hostile, you might be frustrated now, but, in all fairness, they can't read your mind and can't be expected to work towards your goals if they don't know what they are.

Hope this helps!

You are EXTREMELY WRONG! I have played it. I own an 18W and it would be an awful stereo amp, it's way too bright, breaks up too easily and so on. Secondly, why would a guitar store sell an hifi amp.

Don't kill them. Rape one in front of the other so they know who is in charge.


But before you rape them, carve out their eye socket and pee in it.

1.) Incinerate
2.) Pulverize the bones/teeth fragments into dust.
3.) Mix dusty ashes with Lemonade.
4.) Profit.
