This is just my damn luck. I've been stationed here at Fort Sill, Oaklahoma for the past couple of months. I consider myself to be a metal/rock bassist...so it's hard enough to find a store that sells decent basses let alone find a band to play with. I posted a "band wanted" ad at localhardcore.net when I first got here. I've been playing for a bout a year and I wanted to take that step into gig/band playing. So fast foward to a couple of weeks ago. I haven't had a reply to my ad. And I'm only here for two more months...NOW someone replies to me, saying they've got an opening for a bassist...and I had no choice but to turn them down ARGH! I'm on my way to Fort Bragg, NC...any metal bands out there need a bassist? PM or email me ASAP so we can get started as soon as possible. anyone else have this happen to them?
