Okay, here's the scoop. Played in a couple of rock bands when I was younger. Then got tied up with work, family, etc. and didn't play bass for too many years :-( Have been taking lessons for about two years now, and am wanting to find a group to play with. I have good gear, practise lots, transportation, but of course I have lots to learn. I would like to find some people that have some similar interests....both in music taste and to some degree, lifestyle....ie: don't smoke etc. Maybe that's too much to ask. Is posting at the local music stores about the only way to find other musicians???
