Ok, I've been playing the bass for just over two years and as of yet I have only played with another musician once (guitarist in an audition/jam). Is this too long a period to have not started playing with other musicians? I'm starting to feel confident with physical side of playing but not with theory. Another problem is that people will probably ask "What have you been doing for all that time, sitting on your arse?" In which case I would have to answer "Yes" because that's basically what I've been doing. Plus I don't know anyone who plays an instrument. How long was it until you got into a band situation?
