I have been looking for another paying gig and the last three cover bands I've jammed or auditioned with had a bunch of boring rock tunes where the bass part is pretty much playing an A at eighth note intervals except maybe the chorus on some songs. Things like Stick goes boom by Krokus and Say what you will by Fastway. I had one jam session where I was just chuggin A's for 2 hours straight before I decided I had enough and left. They always complain about how hard it is to get a bass player to commit. I asked the lead singer of the one band why he didn't play bass for the band instead because he said he could play any instrument. He danced around without giving me a straight answer... well we were waiting for the guitarist to show up and he hopped on the drumset and made a fool of himself. He was a good singer, though. I just can't imagine that those kind of songs would even be crowd pleasers. Why do cover bands pick those kind of songs? I know it's easy money with little to no effort, but it kinda limits your abilities.
