As bass players I guess we are all in demand to a degree - I have found since moving to London that there are a tonne of bands looking for bass players - and having joined three, with the prospect of a few jazz jams on the side, I am starting to wonder if I'll be able to keep up the pace - and if anyone has any tips for changing gears from gig to gig? One little footnote to that is that I auditioned for a new funk band on Saturday, I played really well and got the gig. One thing that I made a mental note of though when I met the band last week for a pre-audition chat, was that these were all extremely nice people that I felt completely on the same wavelength with. Compared to this fusion keyboardist and drummer I have been having a couple of sessions with - the latter two guys were very hard to work with, managed to piss me off and give me a hard time simultaneously, and as a result of them being dicks, I called them to say I can't do their little project - due to "other commitments". In short I think getting on or being friends with, your fellow musicians, is as important as being on a similar musical level... Ok that's enough - your thoughts as ever are much appreciated, Munki.
