Some of the songs I have to learn in my band are songs I never heard
The only way I can learn them is by playing along with the recording.
One song is a slow country song called "anymore" by Travis Tritt.
Nice song with some cool guitar work in it.
Lots of guitar parts.
I learned the song note for note and chord for chord.
I don't always do this but this is a powerful song and it should be
Then I went to rehearsal to find that the way I played it didn't fit
in with what the others were playing.
They changed things.
Yep. Since you learned note for note, they should have too. But
it should still have fit. If you change things and they do not mesh,
it was not a good change. If they changed stuff and it still flows
it is OK. That is my gauge. Also if the song has any signature parts
you better do at least that or something very close. Or people like
me will talk about you :-)
They changed the intro, the hooks and the ending.
Well was any of that signature parts of the songs that everyone
than their grandmother knows? The ending does not bother me
as I have found most times you have to come up with something
anyway as studio recordings fade or whatever. The intro should
be fairly straight forward unless it is a special sound or something
impossible with your instruments.
At least the solo is still the same.
So half of the time I was OK.
Since the others played this song in other bands for years I had no
choice but to relearn it wrong.
At least now we are all on the same page,
But I keep thinking that we are playing it wrong.
I don't suppose you mentioned that to them??
