ok. I gotta get over this one. Had an experience about a week or so ago that made me somewhat paranoid. A while ago I had an opportunity to play with one of my favorite bands, Bumblefoot. Things didn't work out, and I wrote about my experience here. I was upset at the time. I recently contacted the main guy in Bumblefoot again, and in the email I sent him I included a link to this site and asked him to pass it along to anyone who might be interested. He emailed me back saying he visited the site a while ago, someone forwarded him the thread I started regarding my experience with his band. OUCH! I quickly did a search for that thread, and thank god I only praised him and Bumblefoot. Ironically, bacause of that thread - I wound up playing with them last week and will probably wind up doing some gigs with them. I am elated. My dilemma........ I've been holding off at Talkbass since then because: A. I don't want anyone forwarding him anything else I write regarding him, Bumblefoot, my feelings, hopes, excitement, doubts or whatever about it. B. My cover band, which is beginning to pay well, is insane about my participation in other projects - so I'm not telling them anything I do anymore, and I've become paranoid of them hearing about my new "project" and giving me hell. I've also wanted to post about this and ask others opinions, but haven't. What am I trying to say here? Not sure. Just trying express my feelings about my concern over my postings here... and maybe ask that if anyone forwards any of anyone's posting to anyone else, that they do it with great care and respect? I feel you guys are family, and I like to be able to talk about everything that's going on candidly. I want to share my excitement, my fears, my hopes, etc. and do so with a clear head.
