Does anyone ever feel like two-week-old bread when it comes to music and being a bassist sometimes? For the past month i have been really stale. This year has been a year for me where i have taken time out from being in regular serious bands just to chill and earn some money, gain some perspective. I still play in church every week. I am getting really bored of it and it is showing in my playing. Almost to the point where its a chore to go to band practice. I hate that because music is to be enjoyed, not to be thought of as a chore. However, last night at church we auditioned a new drummer. Myself and him locked in really tight and we had some serious groove happening, and he seems to be right on my bands wavelength. plus, my Warwick has been out of action for a week due to electronic troubles so i have been playing my Jazz heaps. The different tone and feel of the bass really made last night a fun practice. I think i am slowly coming out of my slump. does anyone ever feel like this?
