Double Bass

08 September 2010 - 10:10 AM

So I'm contemplating buying a 3/4 upright bass. Why.. I'm not sure yet, but I have this desire to move beyond playing a conventional electric 4 or 5 string bass in some of the music I play. Unfortunately they don't sell decent ones on the cheap. I mostly want to use it for Jazz style. Any advice on what to look for when shopping for a used one?

Good band business practice

One thing I've learned over the years of going though lengthy interviews processes is to be prepared. Expecting or even in a sense demanding something (a job, a gig at a new venue, a girl you have a crush on) does not get you far. Sure, occasionally you'll get lucky and thing will fall into place the way you wanted without putting in the leg work, but for the most part I've learned you need to do your homework. Find out what it is they are looking for, and if you feel you fit that need and are still interested after knowing their background, then is when you make your proposal.

With that as a backdrop, what would you recommend as a pitch for a newer band to play in a venue you haven't played in before.

A couple places I'd love to play at are Yucca and Lost Leaf. I emailed Yucca a couple times and never had any response. I don't want to keep emailing and be the guy that didn't get the hint, you know? Not sure if that's the case. After visiting Lost Leaf from a recommendation I'd really like to get in and play there also. Very cool setting.
