I'm taking a big step and leaving my home town with very little planned as far as what I'll be doing musically when I get to Austin TX. I have a totally professional set of basses and gear, ready to tour, ready to record, ready for whatever. I only know a hand full of folks in Austin as of yet. So my question is this... For those of you with experience (and preferably success), what have you found to be the best ways, or mediums, to try to advertise your bass skills in a new town? I'd be looking for anything from studio work to joining bands (if I like the sound) to being hired on for tours... honestly ready to do whatever it takes to make a niche for myself as a local bassist. I want to be as musically active as possible. I can write/compose/arrange on a pretty high level and I've been a self-study musician for over 11 years, so I have chops and I'm also very versatile. Anything from funk to rock to metal to prog, blues, soul, hip hop, jazzy stuff (but not up to hard jazz yet) etc. Just have no idea how to approach the game as a stranger in a new town. Any advice from veterans or really anybody is much appreciated! Thanks!
