hello. i've been reading through different posts about auditions and it got me wondering. i have played now for five or six years, but only taking it serious for about a year now. my playing has gotten a lot better, but i'm still just what i consider a bedroom virtuoso. i've never played bass in any classical settings outside of highschool, and in the couple years i went to school to get an associates degree i only played in the jazz band. i'm 22 now and i want to do something in music. i have no problem working a "real" job for income, but i would like to be in a small group for just a little money, or if nothing else just to say i did it. i'm tired of practicing for nothing, does anyone have advice?
