I play bass and dont play in a band and never have. I have a friend ( drummer who is in between bands)who says it is a waste to play bas but not be in a band. I play guitar too and said its different with the guitar.and that you can play but not join a band. I was saying all this because I like the bass better than guitar and was thinking of selling my guitars and I could get a great mid to high end bass. keeping only my Taylor 614 ceL4 and the electric guitar I built. I got to thinking about that and was thinking maybe it is a waste to be a bass player with no band. What do you guys think??
