SueH Group rehearsals - what's most efficient ? (11) RE: Group rehearsals - what's most efficient ? 03 Jun 99

How do you manage when there is such a distance between you all? We find it hard enough living in a 20 mile radius! The biggest difficulty comes with working around other commitments, although we try for a practice once a week. Sometimes this takes place at our local session, where fortunately no-one seems to mind. How practices are comprised tends to depend on whether or not there's a gig looming! If not, it's practice on existing songs & tunes, suggestions for anything new, etc. New stuff means taking away a tape plus sheet music if available, trying it out & then seeing how it goes at the next practice. After that, working out arrangements for the various instruments, etc., & making 'fine adjustments'. The back to the practice bit! Quite a lot of time can be taken up discussing arrangements or deciding on sets for a new gig, depending on where & what it is.
