Playing In A Band

I always enjoy playing with a strong group of musicians. Experienced players think about the following:

  • Am I leaving enough space in my playing for the other band members?
  • Is my stage volume making it hard for other players to hear themselves?
  • Are my stage tones clashing with anyone else?
  • Does what I’m playing contribute to the mood and meaning of the song?

I have found myself in situations where players do not think about these questions.
Update: I had included some additional commentary for this post which I have removed. My intent was to talk about the important things to remember when playing in a band and not to single out any one person in particular. I have had to learn these lessons myself.
