these past few weeks for me as a musician have been weird

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by jrthebassguy, Mar 16, 2001.

  1. ....So the other day me and the lead guitarist of my band (now ex-band) are talking to each other on AIM. We get into an argument and decide for the band just to break up.

    Since I know of no other bands for me to join with me on bass, i decided to start a band with me on guitar, since i know another bassist and a drummer. (Note: Yes bass is my main instrument, I've been playing bass a lot longer than the guitar)

    Then I get a call from my old drummer. His new band is working out ok but he says he wants me to play lead guitar for his band cause he knows i also play guitar and they need another guitarist.

    So now here i am playing guitar in 2 bands and im not in any bands with me on bass. That means i actually have to practice with me on guitar and i have less time to play my bass. and until i can find another band or get the old band back together i wont be playing bass in a band for a while.

    Funny thing you'r going though man. The opposite happened to me. I was trying to play guitar in a band until I figured out bassists were much more in demand here and I have done well on bass. What you need to do is either

    a) get the old band back together. i mean, how much irreversible damage could have possibly been done. i am assuming you are all kids in high school, right.

    b) see if one of the bassists in your other 2 bands wants to/is able to switch to guitar.

    c) find a totally new band with you on bass

    d) find a new guitarist and get the old band back together

    e) you'll think of something man, good luck

    IMHO keep the one you have formed and be non commital to the other one. Try to find a band that needs a bass player.

    If you are a bassisst at heart then you need to play bass. However it is good to lead a band.

    BTW I play bass for a local church and run my own normal band from guitar(when I say run I mean badly, we have not rehearsed yet).
