hey all been awhile since i posted but have a lot going on.
i got another newbie question that i hope you all can help me understand. how do each member of a band follow a long with each other? does it come down to melody of the song? i just cant imagine band members counting the whole time especially if they are playing fast. what if the guitarist drops his pick and needs to find his place again?
also how does everyone know when to change chords or start to the next part of the song? is this the drummers role to lead the band and kinda signal with certain drum patterns to move to next part of the song?
i just cant understand how to follow a long with a drum track or backing track.
lots of newbie questions i know but this is really holding me back on my playing.
it's the drummers' job in most cases to keep the time, but you still need to count and keep track of where you are, especially if there's no lyrics that give it away easily.
Being able to hear everyone evenly is key.
