I've been playing bass for about 17 years now, I owned GREAT basses (Sadowsky, F, Tung ect...) I did some studio gig and some live gig, not many... maybe 50. I never had a regular gig where I would play out every week end or on a regular basis. I've had some regular band but we get together mostly to play music and drink some beer. The band I am in right now we play together once a month, we go eat in a nice restaurant before the pratice, we play together and we have a great time. But no live gig. We all have a day job and we don't need gig money. My "problem" is, I don't like to play live, not that I am nervous or anything. I just don't like it. Last time i had a gig was this june, and I wished the guy would call me to cancel it. I still love to play bass, I play more then before. I just finished learning Bernadette and I am learning Teen town right now. When it's done I will take the time to learn Donna Lee. Any other TBer don't like to do live gig? What are the reason? Lazy (probably me!! ) ? Family?? Any other reasons?
