I don't know whether this is the right place to ask, but I'll try it anyway. After my fair share (and then some!) of idiots messing me around for lame reasons, I've toyed with the idea of trying to get a gig on something other than bass. It just seems that around here, bassists get treated like complete garbage, or the bands want hipsters. I can play another in-demand instrument, drums, and I was thinking: would it do any harm for me to just gig on drums instead? There are some pros to this: - Drummers are always needed around here. - I listen to and can play/learn pretty much anything within reason - I can do a Neil Peart and songwrite as well as drum. BUT Chances are that if I do start playing drums full-time gig-wise, I won't return to bass in any serious gigging or performing situation again. I don't want people to think I switched to drums because I'm a terrible bassist, or that I'm playing bass in the worship band out of desperation. Anyone think I should just go for it? Or is it a bad idea?
