    I have been in several bands and I've also been in several different incarnations (is that the right word?) of the same band. I've been playing bass for seven-plus years, about 5 of them were in a band.

    I am putting something else together and working on my original ideas. I don't feel "right" if I'm not in a band situation.
     
  4. I've been in bands my whole playing carrer (yea only 3 years, but anyway). The first band I ended up joining 1 week after I started playing bass, it was a Blink 182 cover, so lines weren't that hard and I picked it up quickly. I've been in a lot of different bands since then ranging from Hard Rock to Acoustic Trios. Right now I play in a moderate rock type band and I like it, we play harder stuff and softer stuff both.

    I think I had been playing for about a year before I was in a real band, I'd just get together with friends and jam though after about a month... we all sucked, so it didn't really matter. :D

    Now I play in 4 bands.

    Funk/Soul/Rhythm & Blues

    Original Rock

    A 3-piece prog metal band that does half covers and half original stuff. We do some WAAAY diverse cover tunes, everything from "Take Five" (Brubeck) to "Master of Puppets" (Metallica) to "Land of Confusion" (Genesis). We're skewed.

    A 4 piece fusion band with a rotating 5th spot for a horn player if we feel like having one sit in.
