I have never been here and obviously this kind of thing has happened before, and it sounds like it happens a lot. I don't normally frequent sites like this and I'm realizing that there are probably a lot of d-bags posting a lot of irritating stuff. I get it. I'm not that guy.

With good players who play in Dead bands you should be able to mix and match five guys from five different bands, say you have 50 guys, how ever many combinations of, for example, five players you can make out of those 50 players (I'm bad at math), they should all be able to nail it-- not Unbroken Chain or whatever, but you could have easily 50-60 songs to pick from right off the bat. And if you happened to have five guys who were completely down with Unbroken Chain or maybe Born Cross-Eyed, you could pull that off too, I'd imagine.

I've been in so many bands where the guys think that all they have to do is spend X amount of hours in the practice room and they'll be a great band... nothing could be further from the truth IMHO. I even had one that was getting together once a week, totally unprepared, accomplishing nothing, and they thought the solution would be to get together twice a week.
Of all the bands I've been in, the best ones have been the ones that practiced the least. I think Fennario's gotten together to practice exactly once in the past 12 months. I wouldn't necessarily call it the easy approach, though... it requires a lot of individual preparation and obsessive listening really helps. Then you just show up to the gig, know your role and trust each other.
