I'd like for talkbassers to tell me about how they go about working professionally (say accounting, programming, engineering, etc.) and being able to be on a band playing gigs on the side. Personal problems have kept me from playing for too long. Now I finally have a job, but I wonder how exactly to squeak in time to get back to playing. I would have to start the band myself. Playing alone in my apartment won't cut it. So, lemme see some feedback/stories on the matter. Examples of time managment/band formation would help a lot.
