    Been a long time guitarist, done plenty of OMs with six strings, but started playing bass around Labor Day. Last night I was able to play bass with the "house band" and it felt great. I'm feeling really comfortable down on the low end.

    Wtg man..... open mics are awesome. Great way to trial by fire!
    A majority of open mic gigs lead to auditions..... so keep at it!

    I got the gig I've been in for 6 years from an OMN. I was in the house band and the GP, drummer & singer came up to play. They asked me to stay and we did a few songs and at the end of the night asked me to join their band. I wasn't happy in the house band so.........
