So the drummer told me last night after rehearsal. I'm subbing for a band for a NYE gig because said bassist departed due to a job relocation. The band said I'm picking up the material quickly and get along well. So by now you're asking why I'm not being brought on permanently? I can't sing. Said predecessor apparently had a really good voice and could do some leads as well as harmonies. With him gone, it's just the singer on her own. The guitarist and drummer don't sing. Who knows how I've tried in the past. Took lessons, bought some instructional books and I still suck. Guess I don't have "it". So it looks like this will be a one and done gig for me. They're still looking for a vocalist with some bass ability since it lloks like they don't want to add another guitarist or keyboardist with vocals. Oh well.
