The guys in my band and I have decided that meeting up once a week just isn’t cutting it. After a month of getting together and forgetting most of what we had worked on the previous session has proven this fact: it’s time to up the commitment! Therefore, I am bracing myself for … (drum roll please) 4 times a week!

Here’s a rough sketch of our schedule:

1. Monday night @ Eric’s – tighten songs, write songs, rehearse (without real drums), make setlists

2. Wednesday night @ my place – tighten songs, write songs, rehearse (with drums), make setlists

3. Friday night – hang out, drink, play video games, see rock shows, go out

4. Saturday morning/afternoon – record, rehearse

I’m torn … I think this is the best way to make sure we don’t end up spinning our wheels, but I’m also a bit anxious about killing 3 nights and Saturday morning out of every week. We definitely go until midnight on the night sessions, and I’m sure the Saturdays could stretch just as long. Still, the last time I made a musical commitment this large (marching band in high school) turned out to be one of the best decisions I made. I’ll keep all you stanus.butt fans updated as I go!
