I'm busy busy preparing for an amateur theatre production of Brassed Off. (It starts on Friday) I'm acting and playing which is great fun. (For those of you who know me, you'll guess which part I'm playing!) Now, we've got non-musical people standing in front of the band and waving their arms aimlessly and with little/no sense of rhythm and pulse. The problem is half the band is following them! It's really getting in the way! I think it's down to inexperience of some of the players and not listening to the leaders....tut tut. It really makes you appreciate how much musicians look at the person in the middle and take cues from them! Has anyone else had this trouble? How did you resolve it?
