Well, more like what’s left of my band, as we’d go through guitar players and drummers so much, due to the personality “quirks” of the band leader. I had to draw the line here too last week, I mean, I actually get along well with volatile artistic personalities and all, but the days of being on a learning curve, and paying dues to be part of a project are over for me.
I really know why ads for musicians say things like “reliable, no drama/drugs, have own gear, transportation, phone”, lol, I can tick those boxes, but it does wear thin after awhile if bandmates can’t. But I knew this going into it, so no surprise, I knew my time here was limited.
On the bright side, what a great time! So much to learn, to experience, and to grow as a musician. And to have a first band where we just had fun. Maybe that’s why it feels a little like heartbreak on Valentine’s Day too, haha! They did let me be the bass player, even though I was new, and totally sucked, so I will always appreciate that.
Just wanted to post, this forum is kind of a blog for me sometimes! I bounce back fast, although haven’t touched my bass all week, I just don’t feel like it. Kind of more like apathy than feeling down though. Maybe need a break from it. Just gonna listen to music for awhile, not play.
But wouldn’t trade that experience for the world!!
