I have a tough situation I have gotten myself into and the main antagonist in this story is my band director. I am the top jazz band in my high school. The director for this band stubbornly holds the opinion that the upright bass is the "correct instrument for jazz". The school owns an upright and I have taught myself how to at least struggle through a chart on it. The director is now insisting that i play it on at least half of the songs we play and the bottom line is that I play electric bass and have no desire to play upright and I suck at it. Whenever i try to talk to him about it he just says that my upright playing sounds fine to him. There are many other cons as well. it is a huge hassle to get it out and set up every day I have to change amp settings every time i switch The equipment is awful and i can't get decent tone or enough volume out of the upright. What should i do????
