Questions for "non professional" gigging bassists

I was curious what other bassists have experienced as they play “abroad”.

I gig a lot but i’m not a paid pro. I’ve had people offer to pay me but I usually turn it down because if they are paying me, then they can tell me what/how to play. If I do it for the fun of it then I can just catch a groove.

QUESTION: How often have you actually had to read script music on a gig?

I can’t possibly be the only one here.

I’m definitely non professional (to say the least) but I haven’t gigged in a couple decades :slight_smile:

There have been a number of people who have played but very few that do so currently. I think the list is @Gorch @Gio @JoshFossgreen and @muff. But muff hasn’t posted in a long time. There might be some new people I’ve missed though.

I am looking froward to see what comes up on this thread, though.
