Hi, I took up playing the Bass a few years ago and enjoyed learning it, but after a couple of months gave up to return to playing acoustic guitar with a folk group. I did this because I felt that I wasn't headed anywhere on my own with the instrument. Now, I've been offered a the bass player's job in a wedding band if I can get up to standard within a year. The current bass player is quitting the outfit to move abroad when he gets married next March. Unfortunately, there is no possibility of me practising with them meanwhile, due to logistical issues. The band play popular dance music and the odd ballad. I'm not a natural musician but I'm able to put in around two hours a day, seven days a week practising on my own. But I don't want to waste my time if it leads nowhere. Can any of you experienced players advise whether it is feasible (I don't say possible, because I guess that anything is possible in theory) for me to be able to get up to a suitable standard to play this type of music professionally in the timescale? Many thanks for any advice. Paul.
