    Funny thing happened last night at the venue. Last night, my R&B band, Chiedza, opened for The Tony Rich Project, and the guy playing bass for him, is also Julie Dexter's bassist, a young hot shot named Darrell. EVERYONE is talking about him, and for good reason, the kid can flat out play. Anyway, I finally get to meet him, and I told him that, "tonight will be a chance to learn something." He responded, "Yeah, for me too." I asked who else was playing, and he goes, "You. I've heard a lot of great things about you. Unless there are 2 Woodchucks. I've been looking forward to meeting you. Your name comes up in just about all of the conversations among bassist in this town." Wow! :eek: When it comes to basketball or cooking, I'll trash talk with the best of them, but as a bassist, my confidence isn't quite so sure. :( After hearing Adam Nitti, Bill Dickens, T. M. Stevens, Za Williams, Mike Chapman (Garth Brooks), etc. tell me how good I am, I still lacked 100% confidence. Last night showed me, that, hey, maybe I am a pretty good bassist afterall. ;)

    htag, thanks. Those guys can be bastards at times! :D
    As for my pop's advice, you'd think that a guy who knows how to bury himself in trouble with the ladies would have advice on how to get out of trouble overseas!
     
  9. I had a fan club, about 4 years ago. :cool: It was made up entirely of girls, and man did it ever get to my head. I'm surprised that I didn't lose any friends over my whole "I'm a bass god" phase. Heh, kinda sounds like I'm still in it! ;)

    Anyways, that's really cool woodchuck. I've experienced something like that on a much, much lower scale, so I'm sure you're just beaming right now.

    Well, I have been gigging under the name of "Woodchuck" in Atlanta for tax reasons recently, but I'll let it pass. This is YOUR moment. ;) :D

    Good advice :

    a) "May I have another beer?"
    Puis-je avoir une autre biere?
    b) "Where's your bathroom?"
    Ou sont vos toilettes?
    c) "I wish to speak to the American consulate."
    Je souhaite parler au consulat americain.

    If I had a nickel for every time I had to use one of those :D ...

    First JT has the TB fanclub, now Woodchuck... Atlanta just has the cream of the crop in the bass department. I guess I need to a) get better, or b) move out ;) .

    Stachio, don't believe the hype! I'm doing it with smoke & mirrors! :D
     
  13. That's great, Chuck.. The only compliment I've ever gotten on my playing was from a drunken friend who promptly ran out of the club to throw up on the sidewalk. Now THAT'S a compliment that you don't have to worry about an over inflated ego with. ;)
