Just curious. Haven't come across this one anywhere else in TB, sorry if it's out there. But I'm wondering...I've been playing bass (ok maybe "playing" is a relative term here) for exactly 1 year this week. I try to practice for an hour or two daily. A couple of jams with friends have gone OK, nothing special or monumental. But with summer coming, I wouldn't mind finding a band that I can actually play out with, maybe only on weekends. At what point did the rest of you decide you were good enough (in yer own mind) for public consumption? 6 months? A year? Five years? Two days? Also, did any of you who have played out ever regret playing a first gig - maybe wished you'd waited longer until you were more polished? Or are you ever really "polished" enough?
