Hey, everyone! This is one for the more experienced and pro bass players here. I have been doing semi-pro gigging for a while now and I know I'm doing okay but I am nervous about jumping in completely before I'm ready. I know that waiting to be ready means I will never get there, but I really feel that my playing is still pretty far behind the full time working bass players. So my question is, what should I be practicing to put myself in demand for the living-wage gigs of Event/Wedding bands, studio work, and touring? I have been trying to really make myself a well-rounded player with reading, ear training, repertoire, etc. but It seems to me such a broad landscape of study and with an overabundance of educational bass resources, I feel like I really need some guidance to get to the important stuff. So are there any specific pieces of advice anyone can give me on mustering the salt for the full time life?
