| | I Love Music Too Much! Help
Hello Bassisti Experts,
I am an amateur bass player who wants to gig as an amateur someday.
One of my biggest road blocks is being into so many different styles of music equally, that I cannot stay focused on any group of songs to build up an audition repertoire. If I go on craigslist, bands are auditioning so many styles, I don't know what to do because I like them all. Since I am not trying to earn a living on the bass, I don't feel particularly compelled one way or the other for the sake of money ,stability, etc..
Might anyone have recommendations on what someone like me should do?
When I dream of playing in a band, I dream of things like neo-soul, fusion, progressive rock/metal, Latin jazz, country, hip-hop, folk, modern gospel and many more.
I guess ideally, I would hope there may be a few songs out there that would be diverse and well rounded enough that I would be able to cover a lot of ground just by learning those. Perhaps some fusion tunes?
Your feedback is very much so appreciated,
If only Shostakovich wrote for electric bass...
