Basically i'm in a band with a couple of mates and i'm getting slightly pissed off. Despite being the most experienced member and knowing the most theory, they never involve me in the song writing side. Basically when they start writing songs i just get exclude me and i just sit and jam pretty much. If i try and get involved and say yeh i wrote a cool song the other day and play it the guy whose band it is just says thats pretty cool and thats the end of that. What should i do? The problem is these are my friends but i don't particularly like some of the music we play. Any suggestions?

are your songs different from what you normally play?

I think stone is either 7 or 14 lbs

Edit I'm gonna go with 14 because it's rather unlikely you're 56 pounds

When they give you things to play, change them completly

When they get pissed off about that request that you have some input on the songwriting process as well
