Here's me situation: I'm in two bands currently. I joined a band 3 years ago, wrote material, gigged, recorded etc etc and am now sick of/ have lost faith in/ am still with through obligation. In the other band I dont have to pay for anything so I just turn up and play - so it's so easy there's no point in quitting. Neither band is challenging me as a player, band member or song writer. So, the other day I bumped into some guy who asked if I knew any bass players, so I gave my number, got a call, have learnt the best part of a 9 track demo and am waiting on audition. The music is good, it's a bass heavy gig (kind of like Ian Dury & The Blocksheads - not too technical, but nice noticable and involved bass lines)... I like the music, but there's a niggling doubt in the back of my mind... The doubt : I have a feeling that ANY band will be great to start with, I.e. I'll get right into writing and learning etc,,, but then I'll get bored and end up in the situaton I'm in now with the first band mentioned above. Sure I could just quit after a year or as soon as I get bored, but I feel that is messing people around, especially if I'm not 100% sure to start with. I'm starting to feel as though the best option is to start my own band, but I'm unsure where to start, what style to start with, and what the overall aim would be?! I just wondered what other people's band expereinces are? Does anyone else suffer from this phenomenon.. or is it just me?!
