So, been working things out on the phone, and looks like I'll be getting a job... Playing bass. Local band (who will be unnamed til it's 100% certain) on their way up, doing Godsmack/Monster Magnet/Nickelback original stuff. Not my bag of bricks, but it's not something I'm opposed to considering I can stand to make a good deal of money. Anywhere from $90-1500 a show, with a lot bearing a $500 minumum: aka mostly $100 a show to yours truely with some shows less but a lot on the higher end of that. Throw down anywhere from 3-12 shows a month around the northwest and west coast (CA, AZ, NV, WA, OR, ect), it could be a very decent position. We've talked for a few days, and I got the CD to learn the material, and Thursday is adudition day. I'm looking at this like a job more than a band. But, you don't just skip work or slack off if you want a raise, so the band will get all of me I could throw in a job, but I won't consider it my main gig (that would be the band I'm doing vocals for). Still...If I get this, I probably won't need to get a "real job." Does this mean I could technically be a "pro" bassist? Or just a bass whore? Either way, bass as a job is any musician's dream. I'm the odd man out, with everyone else being in their late 20s, early 30s, and myself only 19. So, wish me luck...might need it, and it can't hurt either way.
