as it says above how long had you been playing before your first gig?
On bass guitar - about 6 months
On upright bass - about 3 weeks
I was in a band for three years before we played our first gig. That's right, that's what I said -- three years! We played a total of four gigs in four years and after our fourth gig, I quit.
I Started at 16. Joined my first band and played a gig three/four years later.
2 or 4 weeks, don't remember exactly.
A school band gig in front of screaming French exchange students - cooool!
A little over one year.
If you consider playing in front of an audience a gig, the first time I ever played was at a gig. I was a drummer in my dad's church, and my best friend was the bass player. We decided it might be fun to switch out. He showed me where C, F and G were, and the next night I played at church. Before that, I had spent maybe 10 minutes holding a bass.
I switched to bass from guitar when I was in my early teens, and was gigging at private functions for small $$ at the time - so I was gigging BEFORE playing bass.
Club gigs started for me at 16 yrs old - almost 18 months after switching to bass.
Just a few weeks and we played a little talent show. I didn't even know the notes. the lead guitarist showed me a line and i memorized it.. i baisically knew nothing.
2 months after playing bass i got together with some guys for a cover song gig, 1 practice was all we had.
2 years, nearly to the day.
First in front of people - about 3 months.
First paying gig - about 1 year.
Last paying gig - 21 years ago.
almost 4 years and not a gig yet
It's hard to find a band that doesn't play punk round here
LOL... you kick a$$ Embellisher!
I think it was about 4 months for me. We started jamming near the end of winter and was playing spring school parties later that year.
2 and a half years
About 3 1/2 years before a gig came about.
You play music with your basses? In front of people?...What will they think of next?
P.S. That means I haven't played a gig. Alaska doesn't really have a music scene...or music shops...or music halls...or clubs of any sort...or musicians...or the necessary oxygen to support intelligent life. Thus, I do not play gigs, or know basic math.
21 months since I started without a gig.
Man, I thought I had it bad here in Wisconsin! I mean, at least we have the oxygen to support intelligent life. Er, wait.....
