Or are the other 3 members not included at all? I assume work for hire would be none for all. Correct also? Everything is all original. Thanks.
I had a look at http://www.copyright.gov/forms/formsr.pdf and it says:
Generally, for the claim to cover both the sound recording and the underlying
work(s), every author should have contributed to both the sound recording and
the underlying work(s).
... so I think in your case the songwriter should fill in Form PA and register the song and the band should fill in form SR and register the recording. Though I don't have any experience with registering copyright in the USA.
