Im in hs jazz ensemble (small jazz band .. about 5 or 6 ppl), and theyre all really good musicians and love that old time jazz feel, so they want me to play on double bass. I dont play double bass. My intonation isnt so hot, my fingers def arent there yet, and my technique is far from proper. I want to learn, but we have two shows comnig up, and playing for a single period gives me giant balloons on my fingers. Clearly i cant play a whole show. what do you guys think about playing electric for the time being, while working on double bass? Should i suck it up and wear layers of band aids or betray their utopian unrationalized notions of greatness and play electric? I sort of have my mind made up, but im curious what most bass players would do in this situation. Thanks.
