Just wanted to share it with my fellow bassists. I just came (after two excruciating hours of subway), from the first rehearsal of a band. The rest of the bandmates really have a great technical skill, which i lack. They don't seem to matter that i am not as good as them. I am enthusiatic about this band. We've been playing three hours and it was quite good. I have the impression i can learn a lot from this people. Anyway, i want to ask for advice. I've always played with people that play more ore less at the same level that i do. This not being the case now, i want to know, if any of you has played with people that were much better that him/her, what are your impressions on the subject. Have you learned? If so, what? Have you had problems because of your lack of skill? If so, how? Well, any thougths are appreciated. I wanted you to know there is one more happy bassist in the world.
