There's an ad in my local Craigslist looking for a bass player for a working GB (general business) band. It says, "We also need a grooving bassist. Age is not an issue if you can bring it!". It also says, "We are in a great pay scale with our venues so it's important that you understand the difference between showing up for a night of work and "jamming/drinking" in your buddy's basement." What do they mean by this? Are they looking for a bass player with many years' experience and a huge repertoire of songs in his head? I've only been playing for a few years now, and while I consider myself a good player I'm certainly not James Jamerson or Willie Weeks! I'd apperciate it if someone could school me on GB bands and what's needed from a bass player. I'm thinking of auditioning but I don't want to be wasting anyone's time if it requires a level of proficiency I simply don't have yet.
