I’m what I would consider an intermediate level bass player. Have committed myself to learning the instrument for 3 years and have played on stage a few times. I’m 85% done with the B2B course and don’t have much issue playing the fast workouts (for reference).
Currently I’m not in a band but I’d like to be. I feel like my “training” has no direction without it. The last one I was in didn’t last too long. They all lived an hour away and the lead singer/lead guitar player had a falling out. I decided not to stay on with the new makeup b/c distance/time/etc.
My question is… What should I be working on while I’m waiting for that call? I check the craigslist community posts to try and find opportunities but it’s slim pickings. There are two colleges nearby (I’m 31). We even had a cool local blues jam night that I’d frequent (played it once) but the venue closed and it’s homeless right now.
I just want some focus with my training and to be ready when I do find a band or project and get a chance to audition.
Thanks for any advice.
