K, so I'm the lead guitarist in a school band, we also have a rhythm player, who is very good, a violinist/bassist/pianist/acoustic/rhythm/mandolinist, ...a drummer, and a singer/lead player. The problem is the singer...aint too good, and while he's not a bad guitar player...he's probably the worst in our band, after myself, the rhythm player, and everything man. Myslef and everything man want him out...But he's best buds with the rhythm player, who we really want to keep. I'm also good friends with him, and I don't really know how to say...umm, yer not really good enough for what we're trying to do here. any advice?

"I think you're too good for us and you should move on because we're holding you back" doubt it'll work but it's a suggestion

or

Saying the complete opposite really isn't the way to go...

Anyway...

Personally, I think its best to just be blunt and straight to the point

Trying to suger coat it, or lieing about it is just being patronising, which really sucks

I was in the exact same situation. I was the lead guitar player and wrote most of the material, but the rhythm guitar play/lead singer was a horrible singer. He could play guitar fine but his singing was bad. The drummer, bassist, him and I were all good friends so it was hard, I ended up just leaving the band because we weren'y getting anywhere with him as the singer. I would do what A Minor Prize said, break up and reform as something else.
Your opinion is just that, YOUR opinion. It doesn't make you right. It doesn't make you better. It doesn't make you god. Everyone has their own view and that view is neither right or wrong.

But why didn't you just tell him to shut the **** up and focus on playing guitar?

Call a band meeting, give your ultimatum, then tell the rest of the band you'd like to stay a band.

And maybe buy a hoe for the singer, just to make him feel better.
