I'm in a country cover band called The Corduroys, based out of Sacramento. I'm just a hired gun, but I'm the singer's main hired gun. We're playing a thing called the Honky Tonk Harvest festival in Lodi on Saturday. Hopefully it won't rain.

Weekends are still being spent more doing this than live gigs. Good experience for me. Certainly making me a more consistent and comfortable player with a click….

Rehearsing can be a hoot. I wish my band did it WAY more than we actually do. Guys in my band are of the "there's no better practice than right in front of an audience" school of thought. And I partially agree...

BUUUUT, I also kinda like not having th deer in the headlights look when I play, especially on a premiere. So yeah, enjoy your rehearsal time knowing you'll kick as much butt as you can when you finally get to play for a crowd...

Totally agree. I’ve usually been with guys who have your band’s philosophy.

This band is doing everything the other way around. Writing and recording first. We are rarely in the same room at the same time. I get a scratch track with a metronome running, then put down the drums, then they build around my track.

This is nothing new, but it is new for me.
