Hey all, Well I was playing piano in a small classical ensemble practice last night at church. My friend, who is a semi-pro viola player has been working hard on putting a band together, and he has most of it, except for a bass player. He is planning on taking the band on a tour to Europe and Japan in about a year. Last night, he gave me first dibs on the position. Now this proposition scares me to death, but it's very tempting. This guy is very serious, as are all the musicians in the band. I have some time to make a decision, but I want to hear some feedback from some of you guys who may have tour experience, either in the States or otherwise. This is a heck of an opportunity, and I don't know if I'm even up to the task, but I'd love to hear some input from you guys. Thanks a lot!
