Drummers I share gigs with joke that we are going to learn to play bass since bassists are so hard to find. I got tired of joking Mar 29, 2015

    I have been a drummer for 35+ years. However, in April of 2015
    a serious car accident and subsequent surgery on my leg had me off the kit for some time. I had always wanted to pick up bass but had never given it serious thought. However, given the forced hiatus from drums the time seemed right. I picked up a cheap bass on eBay and dove into on line lessons and also discovered this forum. That Sept. I auditioned for a band and did my first bass gig with them in January of 2016. In May I somehow landed a gig with a vocal oriented band that played everything from Steely Dan, ELP, Toto to Peter Gabriel. Learning their material with only a years experience, had me ramping the practice up to 15 hrs a week.

    As of today, Nov. 2016 I do about 2-3 bass gigs for every one on drums.... go figure
