i have no band, no gigs. im 34. i started piano lessons at 5, played till i was 15. at 11 i joined the school band as a drummer. played with them till grade 12. my sister gave me an old guitar when i was 12, then a bass when i was about 16. all these years ive been mainly playing guitar (20+ years). in the early 2000s started using my computer to record and mix all sorts of sounds. in 2008 i bought a nice yamaha piano and started banging around that a little. then in 2009 i bought a bass and have been focusing on that for the last few years. as a teenager i was in a punk/death metal band and jammed with to local kids. jammed with some other guys in my early 20s. i do know a guy down the road that i grew up with. hes a country singer, has a couple singles on i tunes, uses session musicians. he really has no interest in jamming with me. not to mention that hes been trying to be famous since we were kids, its kinda flaky if you ask me. so here i am, all alone. never made a dime playing music. but play every day. these days its a bass. but ive gone through my phases. any other bedroom heros out there. all the posts i read are either "i was playing a gig last night" or "i want to play retro-emo-reggae , what kind of bass should i buy" i just gave my 8year old an old guitar, maybe he will play with me one day..... my 1 yr old likes to slap the bass an bang pots and pans together too. a jazz trio possibly? my wife has an old sax in the closet from her school band, hmmm. for now its me and a looper. who can relate? ps: im not proofreading this for continuity or structure. deal with it. just wanted to get it out there.
