Hey everyone...... I hope this is the right place for this thread! I'm a 22yr old bassist that's kind of getting over the local scene. I play fretless and fretted and studied jazz at uni and now find that 80% of my gigs are pop or reading gigs (or pretend jazz). The pop ****'s great fun but I'd rather be closer to the BIG gigs if that's what I'm playing. Anyway I'm playing in a latin/jazz band with a Canadian pianist (I'm in Australia) who has got me thinking of moving to Canada or maybe US for a little while. Any help or comments etc. on how to get a work VISA or wether you think I should even do it? I'm reasonably well gigged so I'm not naive to the standards required. Thanks heaps - 'The Pat'
