So two years ago, my first band thought we were bad*sses for being able to play half of Enter Sandman, so we desided to play at my friend's annual 4th of July family party. He was in the band, btw.
Anyways, as you could imaging it sucked majorly. 3 guitars and a drummer... pretty bad...
So after that, the guy who has the party switched to drums, so me and him left the "band". Anyways, we started to practice and got a few solid songs down over the winter. And when June comes up, he tells his family that we're gona play again... I'm thinkin, ****, why am I even doing this. This had put sooooo much stress on me over that month.
It went much, better because we actually knew maybe 6 or 7 songs, but still had no singer or bass player. People actually clapped
Afterwards, he told me that everyone loved it. Since then we kinda went on a hiatus from playing with eachother. I really missed playing music with him, and he asked me to do it again this year. I feel like its kinda pointless to play just guitar and drums to songs written by full bands, and that people would get rather bored.
He also told me that 4 or 5 more people are coming this year because of it...
Im sure its good experience, but I'm becoming skeptical of doing it.
Any ideas with songs we could play? Is this even a good idea?
