So since there’s a lot of encouragement/recommendation here about playing music with other people I started looking around where I could find such people apart from those I already know (guitar playing colleague, drummer friend) and had a look at a band/musician marketplace.
There is a band really close by, playing pop rock and looking for a bassist. Writing this out I already can imagine your answers but I’m not sure I’m confident enough to go to a group of people who already knows each other and so and play with them with my beginner skill.
Apart from my freight it’s perfect. A few minutes away, they have a practice room and already written songs. You can listen to existing songs here:
I like the genre and the only thing I’m not completely on board with is the voice/vocal melody.
At least some of them contain bass so I guess they had a bassist once? Or one of the two guitarist has to be on “bass duty” sometimes. From what I listened to it sounds playable given a bit of practice so I don’t have to actively think about the chord progression and so on.
I’m going to sleep now and see tomorrow what you guys think about contacting them. In their ad they say “beginner, advanced, experienced” as skill level so I guess the worst that could happen is that they aren’t interested.
edit Huh. I thought it was a male singer but it’s female. Not that it makes a difference for anything said before.
