I need a little push to get out and play. I'm probably over thinking this, but.... My current project is going a little slower than I hoped. I'm thinking of doing an open mic or two, and sing with just a bass and a DI pedal. I'm nervous to do it for several reasons. Mainly because it's just not done very much. But also 'cuz I'm not really part of the scene here, so this would be my first foray outside my little project circle. I don't want to suck too much, particularly if I'm doing something that's rarely done. I really don't want to do the crappy sounding plugged in acoustic guitar thing. I would have done that already if I wasn't sick and tired of that from years past. I just think it would be fun to try something different, and a good excuse to introduce myself as an also bassist, as opposed to yet another singer/songwriter at an open mic. Also, I'm not ready to do an open jam on bass at this point. Way too scared to try that. Absolutely nothing fancy. Something easy to play and sing to, and have an excuse to get out and play, meet some folks, etc... Maybe one or two covers, and one original. Something like, With or Without You and/or Basketcase? Not necessarily those, but something easy along that vein. Part of me is really scared. But the other part is like, who cares? It's not like anyone is gonna be listening, anyway. It's an open mic. I guess I just need a little push to go for it. Any thoughts yay or nay? Song suggestions? Cheerleading?
