My first as a bassist after two years in the shed. Not my first rodeo as a band member though. It has been over 10 years though! The bass lines are dirt simple which is good for me starting out. Not too much pressure. I like the songs, I think they're quite good, actually. Given my desire to step outside of the shed, I accepted their offer. But I have some trepadation, as follows: 1. I was told the rehearsal space was about 2 miles away from my house. This weighed in heavily in my interest and decision to join. After rehearsal was over, turns out they can't always get the space when they want and may have to travel what I consider to be quite far for rehearsal. We can play at my house on weekend afternoons, so I offered that. The guitar player said he didn't want to move his double recitfier though, which I don't understand, which leads me to... 2. The guitar player. He seems like he might possibly have a bit of a primadonna thing going on. The band is fronted by a female whose name is on the band. She wrote all the songs but she has limited musical knowledge and the guitarist appears to be the director of the band in that aspect. Based on what I've gleaned. Nothing's been said about it yet though. I may have to get clarification on that. Anyway, he seems to smoke a lot of pot. He was constantly smoking it on down time. Didn't seem to affect him negatively though. When we were on break, the singer, drummer and I would go outside and shoot the ****, while the guitarist stayed inside and hung with the other band that was there doing some recording while we were rehearsing. Never came outside once, which struck me as at least a little odd. 3. Are personalities are very different. I'm pretty reserved generally speaking and they definitely aren't. I'm good at communicating though and they seem to be too so hopefully we should be able to mesh on an acceptable level in that respect. They all seem to like drinking and drugging though and I'm totally straight, I gave up all that stuff years ago and they're the same age bracket as me (mid 40's). I'm a drummer so I know what I want to hear on drums and the drums sounded pretty phoned in to me at the audition. Granted the songs are very simple and repetitive so I can see how it could be easy to get complacent, I'm thinking as we tighten up that'll come into it's own and become gig worthy. So, they offered and I accepted but I'm just in a we'll see kinda mode right now. Wish me luck. Any thoughts on the subject are welcome.
