i was offered a gig the other day and the person requested that i play a standup as opposed to electric bass. i told her that would be impossible since i've never played one (well, fiddled with one for about 15 minutes once). i can still do the gig on electric bass, but now i'm wonderin????? i know someone who would lend me a standup for a while. how much of a transition is there between the 2???? would it be likely that i would be able to pull off 50 minutes worth of music by mid september???? the basslines are fairly simple.... lots of changes, but no gymnastics. arite, i realize noone can really answer this but myself, and it depends on how much i want to put into it. i guess i'd like to know others thoughts to know what i might be in store for. anyone else make the transition? how long did it take to get accustomed to the double bass? any input would be cool.... would help me to decide whether i want to lug that thing over to my apt or not. he has no case for it. input, input, input... thanks.
