Default I need some input here

I have been in the studio with my band and we are almost done with our album. All we have to do is tie up some loose ends like solos and harmonies.

Shouldn't be any big deal, but the guitar player (Bart Bigsby) is really acting an ass. He keeps playing totally inappropriate solos and it looks like he's trying to break his guitar. I am at a loss.

Attached is a recording session we had last night. You can hear at the link in my sig.

Looking for some input here. (preferably of the like I might agree with)

Thanks a bunch,
Willy

rofl, is this a joke? That little solo argument sounded scripted. But seriously, his solos, at least in the first track, sounded good to me <_< I dunno how he looks like he's going to break the guitar, sounds badass to me.

EDIT: In regards to the producer's comments about the second attempt, it really isn't apparent to my ears that he's doing anything wrong. Though this is your attempt to record an album, and you don't want to ruin it... you might want to sit down with your guitarist and tell him that it's in the interest of the group's welfare to hold back on the soloing.

I thought he would have figured it out by now. He's no spring chicken. Bart's been around the block, but it seems he has lost his senses, and I don't know how much more I can take.

Are you considering replacing him at this point?

I think I might have to. It sucks because we are almost done with the recording. I would rather get it done, then can him.

It also sucks because I don't think he's doing anything wrong <_<

Hell, if he managed to break his guitar while recording, it would be an epic band story

Just like another guitar god to take up for one of your brethren. Play to the song is as important as the type of gear you use and what stage outfits you wear.

I am lucky that I don't have some of the normal issues with Bart. He plays a Tele. That is genre correct at least. And he dresses up for shows. He wears his guitar within the specified zone(the upper horn of the guitar body must be within 3 inches of the nips, up or down).

I would hate to see him go.

What does >_> mean?

I don't think the mods want my myspace link to be known anymore. I am Willy of "Willy and the Outlaw Ramblers" and it's true that willysingssongs .

its because you're trying to bypass their system, once you have 15 posts you're allowed to post actual links. but the mods have made it very clear they want people to become more knowable before you do anything like self-promotion. since you can't post links yet show us your lyrics this is the songwriting forum.

also antonio, i like your new album
