.. Getting bored

Post by Robbie.Crow on Fri 30 May - 0:08:42

I've hit the stage where i really cant be arsed going to practices. I love the competitions - not because of the competing though, because i get to meet my m8s, like fiona, richard, redneck etc...

Only trouble is, i've only been in this for feckin 6months *bangs head* i duno what to do, but as i say, im just at the stage where practice's are boring, and i'm only going to competitions to meet people.

I love the pipeband scene, but i'm just getting bored of it. And i aint been at it that long! Also, the weight of the drum is starting to REALLY hurt my back, but i just get on with it. no use moaning about that!

Any advice anyone?

Stop gettin' on like a girly virgin

Get to the practises,. work hard, join a band higher up the grades, work harder, get to grade 1, work really heard, then retire and go to comps, and slag all round you, and spend most of your time in the beer tent,

Hows that for advice???? laughing laughing

I came on here this morning feel a bit down, not feeling 100% read Katies post about her Mum and thought thats nice, read this one, and am now in agony? I fell off the chair laughing. Brilliant best Tonic ever, And i must say Robbie your last post was just classic

Now to be serious, you are how old? 16? and you are bored alreadY?? what did you expect? that everything would be seen through Rose coloured Glasses?(well for those that can see?) laughing It is bloody hard work M8, it is not all a laugh a minute in the beer tent, if you want to get anywhere, I agree with Gordy? stick in work hard and then when you get as old and decrepit as Iain, Richard, Gordy etc, go to the Comps for the Craic.
But dont forget those old BUggahs, have earned their right to enjoy themselves, you are still an apprentice laughing laughing

What is it that you are bored with? Are you not challenged enough? If that's the case (I think it's already been mentioned) you might want to join a better band.

Robbie, everyone goes through the stage of just wanting to chuck it, I went through it recently as you may know. This is the stage though that determines the rest of your pipe band career, When I was 16 I had just moved to Grade 2 from Grade 4b and having not played in about 4 years due to not having drummers, Had I decided to chuck it and just go to competitions for the craic I wouldn't have had half the opportunity's I've had, all the trips away, playing at hampden and murrayfield winning major prizes and now playing with a good band at the top end of grade 1, it may seem crap now but stick at it, i'm glad I did, trust me, you will get the rewards soon enough.
