  1. I wonder what different kinds of careers / occupations that bass guitarists find themselves in. It wold be interesting to find a pattern, and perhaps realize that we have yet another thing in common :)

    It might be best to keep things as simple as possible. Maybe give a job description if it's requested, but otherwise, state your primary source of income.

    I am an assistant manager at Little Caesers Pizza. Your turn!

    I do communications for a church. I have been, at various times, a writer/editor/proofreader, and a retail manager -- music and book stores. I hate working retail.
  4. Right now being a bassist IS my work, although I'm in the process of becoming a law clerk/paralegal to give me some more options...
