I go to a lot of jam nights in my local area for fun and fellowship with local musicians, and when I travel I always seek out something that the locals are doing, usually blues nights. Like I found four in the Daytona, FL area this winter. I'm curious: For folks that like to do that kind of thing, which bass do you use? -Take your favorite, the one you gig with regularly, the best sounding? -Or take a "sacrificial" bass that may not be as good, but you won't cry if something minor happens to it. (It's never good when something bad happens to any bass.) -Or take the easiest, safest route, and just play whatever the host band guy brings? For our area, a lot of the locals that show up are the "local legends", so I usually take my main instrument (a G&L L2K 30th Anniversary.) Most do bring good or new stuff to 'show it off'. So I know I'm in good company, and know I'll always learn something new. Most have been playing for 40 years or more, and I'm only at 12 or so. When I travel I also take the favorite so I can practice and not get too rusty, like just now coming back from two months in Florida, and I've got a gig tonight. Thanks for your thoughts!
