Recently tried out with another original band who has a pretty good name in the area. Come december they will be hitting shows again and getting paid decently for it. Problem im having is, I love the music, the singer is a talented woman and is incredible. Would love to be on a stage with them, her energy level and enjoying making money in an original band playing to great crowds. But, I took 5 of their songs and learned and created my basslines in the week and came in and they gave me the job. But i was told i was doing too much? Which for one thing i am not a too much player, i am by no means a flea or geddy type. They want someone to ride the root notes most of the time and just add small flavour here and there to the song. In my earlier days this would have been no problem but now that im 41 in the past few years i have been in bands that give me freedom to be part of the music as opposed to just being in the background. I want to make decision soon as i dont want to ruin their plans and give them plenty of time to find another bass.
