My bass player says that he doesnt want to play "Higher Ground" for our recital. We have 3 weeks left. THen when we practice, its for 10 minutes cuz his fingers hurt. He doesnt show for many lessons, either. Wat do I do.

Get another bassist. Or just give him the heads up you don't have to keep him. The fact is, if he isn't beneficial, find one that is.

do u think its a little harder when uve known him for 6 years??

i totally agree. give him one last chance and if it doesnt work, replace him. oh and if his fingers hurt..thats not a good sign. lol i play guitar and bass and i've never had any probs.

i agree wit u
finger pain usually comes with playin though. Blisters. If got em, but they don't bother me. I'll play for hours.

Tell him to shape up and take the band seriously. If not you're going to have to find another one.

lol sounds like my bass player
higher ground is an easy song anyway too.

Higher Ground is very easy, but he tells me "I don't know it" and "Limewire isn't working". It's just excuse after excuse.

Tell him that if he doesn't dedicate himself more to playing bass and the band that you'll find a replacement.

These are lies. You don't need Limewire to listen to a song anyways, just download Powertab.

I disagree Slipknot is more technical than Necrophagist and more brutal than Suffocation, that's why I do hardcore dances to it with my 14 year old friends.

Maybe he's embaressed about the fact he can't play slap bass and wants to hide it.
