|What part of your job is your least favourite?
When your putting all your energies into teaching someone who simply does not want to be there. I have had students whose parents have forced them to learn guitar and nothing you can show then or tell them inspires them. Then the parents blame you and you want to explode and give them a piece of your mind but you can't. It drives me insane!
Bouncing down endless drum tracks! BORRRRING
I sometimes have a fear of listening to the music or finished song when it is first sent to me. Only because all the musicians are so lovely, and kind and generous with their time. I have made some wonderful friendships through these collaborations and I could not bare not loving their song as much as I love the lyrics. I have learnt however, that we are all different, and just because I imagine the lyrics to come to life in a certain way, does not mean that they are thinking the same as me.
Can't really think of anything.
Having to talk to artists about potential writing credits if I get quite involved.
its all my favourite!
im lucky :)
The disappointments when working with others. The realisation that few musicians outside semi-pro / pro have the basics sorted. (Timing, phrasing etc) It makes moving to advanced counterpoint and fusion band playing (the interesting stuff!) a non starter in most cases.
Long lonely drives home. Packing my gear away whilst fending off drunk people. Carrying Amps to my car. Re-stringing guitars
Remembering lyrics as I like to make them up or play with vocal harmony
picking up the equipment after a gig.
i adore evry part of my work.
That it doesnt pay the bills. I cannot rely on music to pay bills, it is a labour of love.
teaching old song parts to new members, but even that can be pleasureable....
i like alot of aspects of music making.
sometimes public performance can pointless (hefting gear, soundchecks, frigid audience, low pay, hefting gear home late)
