    or...just phoning it in.
    Been banging away on bass for 7 months. Jam with friends...having fun. So we went to a bar...they had a band doing "Country" songs. Acoustic guitar, bass, electric rhythm, pedal steel. All competent musicians. Bass player sat off to the drummers left...kind of alone. The bass licks sounded all right...but there was something...not quite right. Something....intangible. I wonder if it was a lack of passion? Maybe he was having an off night? Hard to put my finger on it.
    Saw another band several weeks earlier....and they rocked. You could see they were having fun. They weren't a Country band...but there was that intangible thing...at work...it was obvious they were playing off each other...just having a ball. You could feel it.
    I know when I jam with my friends...they are so much better on their guitars and drums...then I am on bass....but I get excited...even if I miss a chord change or hit a wrong note. And if I nail it...well...it's the best feeling ever!
    Just an observation...from a newb.
