I read about people testing their bass in their band to make sure that it sounds right and cuts through and isnt too loud and all and how people are playing in their band, but i was wondering what do people do when they cant get in a band? I go to school and dont know that many other musicians or cant find enough to make a band that i would enjoy. I want to know if there are others like me and what they do. I get discouraged sometimes from playing and don't play for a while then pick up my bass again. Don't get me wrong i love playing, but most of the time i find myself playing to the same songs and a few new ones. I was in one band early last year but when the lead singer and lead guitarist decided to move to scotland, that fell apart. Im curious as to what people do when they arent in a band.
