I have a couple of acts I'm working with, but have oft late wondered if I'm some sort of Yoko Ono, given that most of my acts implode after a few months or sometimes after a year. Just the regular reasons: guys want to spend more time with their girlfriends/wives/kids, guys don't come for jams/come late, guys don't practice, guys just mysteriously vanish... Like I said, I'm well aware that I am cursed, so I'm always civil, though short of being obsequious. I let late coming and no showing slide, I shrug at the lack of practice and say nothing, I've had girlfriends too so I understand the pressure on time... Despite that, it seems like I'm always the person pushing everyone to jam as frequently as possible, arranging for the jampads (and then being out of pocket when someone cancels at the last minute), making videos and notes of areas where we are not as tight as we should be at jams. Just wondering if there's some kind of "do not" rules that I keep transgressing. I'm lucky I have a solo project, and I've been toying with the idea of doing complete covers (guitars/bass/drums/vocals) to keep myself occupied. But I would like to know if you guys have any tips on managing band members, as well as any red lines that you don't break because it's probably going to end up being a waste of time.
