First gig on electric bass in about 6 years???

Image

Played a rock gig on electric bass last night. First time in about 6 years. Had a 30 minute set of 5 originals and one cover. Sang one tune, only my second time singing in public. Practiced 3 times in the last 2 weeks. I was worried how it would turn out after just learning the tunes at the first rehearsal.
It went fairly well. Can’t complain. It was fun. I bet we could kick ass with regular practice. Guess we should work on that.
