This goes mainly for instrumentalists: have you thought much about the meaning of the songs you play? Have you thought about the story they tell? Have you thought about what you can do with your playing to help express that story? Take a cue from your vocalist as singers usually do a great job with expressing the lyrics.

Being in a band involves relationships, most importantly those between you and your bandmates. In any relationship, communication is it's lifeblood. Good, positive communication will energize and invigorate. Negative communication will act as poision. No communication at all will cause relationships to wither away. You choose!

Making rehearsals as productive as possible will take your music to the next level. Are you just playing through songs? Try to concentrate on problem areas as playing through an entire song over and over takes a lot of time. There will need to be one or two people who lead the direction of the rehearsal. There will need to be clear signals for when to stop playing.

Some bands have the luxury of ample amounts of rehearsal time. Some have practically none available. Having a good amount of rehearsal time available is ideal.
