One of my old bands (Hippie Go Lucky) got conned into doing a gig this weekend. A private party. Small gathering.
We’ve rehearsed three times in the last few months, which isn’t much considering we haven’t played in two or three years, and I haven’t touched my bass more than a handful of times since then. I’ve pretty much hung it up. My hands cramp up after just a few songs and it’s painful to play. And I can’t remember how half the songs go.
But, okay, I’ll do the gig this weekend. We’ll see how it goes…
Here’s a clip of the last time we played, years and years ago. You can see why we’re not famous.

I don’t like these private gigs. That means I can’t go.
Maybe you could just bust up a hotel room instead!
LOL @ skylersdad.
one is never to old to rock…just do some stretches and warm up your hands in hot water before the show and you’ll be just fine…
I liked your bass leg keeping time, it sounded good! I was worried about the guy in the ballcap in the foreground though. His hands were all over himself.
I’m laughing at Dale’s comment. He’s so right.
hey, that was cool to see ya play Chris!
I just started playing again, and have the exact same problems. Also, the problem that I always sucked at bass.
Carry on, my wayward son.
