taken a day off from work to play bass !? That's what I'm doing today !!
I hope your employer doesn't know you're here.
Took a week of vacation to record a dozen songs (guitar, bass, drum machine).
I work from home two days a week. Bass is hand just about all day except for when I have to type, or fix something. Fingers are very sore the next day.
Even better. Back when I worked construction to support my music habit, I had a lot of conflicts between work and gigs. I had a chance to play a live radio broadcast one morning, but had used up all my sick days and personal days, plus some, due to an injury earlier that year. I was debating whether to just tell my boss I needed the morning off or wait and call in sick that morning, when he called me into the office the day before the event. He said I had been missing too much work, and to make an example of me, he was going to make me stay home from work "tomorrow" without pay (we never got paid for sick days anyway).
I told one of my coworkers to tune the radio they listened to on the job site to the station I would be on. My boss was gloating a bit about my "punishment" to let the others know taking time off work would not be tolerated. Of course the DJ introduced the band members between songs. My boss sure had egg on his face the next day as I returned to the site to a hero's welcome.
Gigslut, that's the best story ever told !! Cool when it works out that way !!
^ that is awesome
I've missed school to play bass, does that count?
This is so cool!!!!!
Great story up there ^! To answer the question: yes, I have taken days off on several occasions to play bass! And when working at home, I take the half hour here and there...
The hardest part was pretending to be disappointed that I wouldn't be allowed to work that day.
I use up vacation days just to practice for a gig.
years and years ago, I used to stay home from school just to play bass
It's a good idea. I wouldn't mind booking a vacation day just to practice at home. If/when I pick up a method to record music, I may take a day off to record some various ideas. (I have a bunch of ideas I don't want to forget.)
It would be cool to have a Kala U-bass & take outside (park, beach, etc), to enjoy some good weather.
Try using your cell phone as a musical scratchpad. I use mine and email myself the file
. Helps catch those musical inspirations.
What if you play bass for a living
