I'm finding that as I get older (almost 40), that my goals have been changing as a bass player. Actually, this has been happening for several years...I'm no longer interested in chasing virtuosity or highly-enlightened play. I just want to make a good group, playing a good song, sound better. And, I want to be known as a bassist that can accomplish this consistently in a variety of musical situations. Since I've settled into this set of goals, I'm working more than I ever have. Kinda interested to hear what goals everyone else has set for themselves as a bassist.
