Too bad bassvirtuoso13 started the original thread, because it's a good topic. How about us more 'mature' types share a few? My proudest 'gig moment' didn't come at a gig, and it wasn't on bass guitar, either! It was at my wedding. The band that played the reception is a great 50s-style rockabilly band, been doin' their thing in Atlanta and regionally for about 10 years. I used to work with the frontman's wife. Anyway, between sets, he came up to me at the bar and said, "You gotta come up and do a song with us." And I said, "Man, I'd love to, but I can't play upright." He told me not to worry, we'd do something simple. So, he called me up onstage and we did "Blue Suede Shoes." I'm just playing the simplest of walking lines and trying to play somewhat in tune, as we come to the end of one of the choruses and all of a sudden I hear the frontman say, "Let's hear the bass player!" I had about 2 seconds to react. I just started walking it, and eventually moved up the fingerboard. With great trepidation, I ended my solo with a run down from the octave G on the G string, back to A to start the verse again. (And it was in tune, too.. I watched it on the wedding video!) The whole crowd of people burst into wild applause. My parents and most of my relatives had never seen me play before, much less on upright. It was pretty cool.
