Hi guys, Wow for the first time in 15 years gigging I recently encountered a really distressing phenomenon, apparently if youre a bassist and you arrive to play at an informal trad (traditional Irish/folk) session in a pub you suddenly become satan incarnate Last weekend our bands guitarist asked me to help him out doing a trad gig in a local pub and seeing as I hadnt road tested my fretless in an acoustic setting I couldnt wait, so the night of the gig arrives and I appear with my bass and a 30w amp...HOLY MOTHER OF GOD!! the abuse I got from the punters in the audience...and I hadnt even played a note!!, in fairness the other musicians were really cool and when I did start playing they loved the fretless. I mean this is the 21st century, is there still this musical snobbery where electric instruments are villified in an acoustic session??? or is it just this piss ant little country called Ireland I'm unfortunate enough to live in? Dont get me wrong I can take and give abuse as well as anyone but this was nasty and personal and totally uncalled for, I mean as I said I hadnt even played a note, literally as soon as they saw the amp they went ballistic Anyone else ever come across this?
