How to make a sub-teen pop group

*

The keyboard player is the musician - he is the one who reads music, teaches the others what to play, tells them when to start and stop playing.

If there isn't a keyboard player, then none of this will be done.

*

The drummer is the one who owns a set of drums.

(Otherwise you have to have a tambourine, or maracas - or nothing. And hope that nobody notices.).

*

(The drummer and the keyboard player are the only ones permitted to wear a cape.)

*

The main or "lead" guitarist is the one who can play the guitar.

The rhythm guitarist is his younger brother.

*

The bass player is the quiet one (obviously). Ideally, he should play a bass guitar; in the real world he plays inaudibly on the bottom strings of an acoustic.

*

The lead guitarist is regarded as the most attractive to women - that is why he took-up the instrument.

However, if there is a singer, then he is the most attractive to women - which inevitably causes conflict with the lead guitarist, and leads to the break-up of the band.
