Just a couple of hours ago I just got done with my first live performance . I'm a little drunk so forgive me if I ramble. So I'm with a friend of mine named Sean, we have a case of beer and are driving around wondering what to do when we decide to go see our friend Paul. Paul lives in a houseboat in a trailer park. So we get there and find out from his neighbor that he's been out of town for a week and nobody knows when he's coming back. So me and Sean build a fire while get plastered. There's a bar in the trailer park and some of the patrons come out and talk to us. They invite us into the bar as long as we hide our beer. I get in there and there's a guy playing some decent blues guitar with a drummer behind him. I start talking to the people and mention how I play bass. They then proceed to drag me on stage and ask me to play bass. The guitarist is named Teddy and he's a great guy (who'd a thunk it). We played simple blues where he would call out the chord changes. Keeping up with the drums was easy, but I'm not psychic so Ted helped me tremendously where other guitarists would've told me I sucked. There were of course some rough parts but overall it went well . I had a bar full of drunken rednecks shaking their butts. I now have a taste of what you gigging bassists take for granted. I can't wait for more. I'm gonna wake up early tomorrow just to practice .
