Hey, just thought guys guys might like to know how my first solo performance went. I had my first solo performance tonight and i was really skeptical of how it would go. I was a bit nervous(im only 15). My man idea was to go out their with a few ideas and just expand on them as i went. Ive found out i really like doing it that way rather than playing set peices. I took Dune Tune(Mark King)and really mixed it up!! I went fingerstlye, slapped it put harmonics in it lots of chords even experimented with a bit taping and bending the neck getting a tremlo effect happening. Even a bit of strumming and raking which went really well!!! There were alot of bands their and some absolutly crazy Piano recitations. Well at the end of the night they gave the awared to best performance of the night----- AND I WON!!!! Crazy, lots of people their haddnt even heard solo bass before and took it really well! I thought one of the jazz bands thier would get it, or this crazy classical guitar group!!! I guess they just enjoyed some music that was a bit dareing and different. One of the guys their was talking to me and goes "man, that was great, it takes balls to do your own thing". Anyway just telling you soloers how my first experience as a soloist was! I'll be getting into far more!!!!!!!!
