The moment I started playing the electric bass-guitar quite some years ago already, I never imagined to do much more than "noise" on my own. In particular knowing that the kind of music I like the most, progressive metal rock, is far beyond in skill to what I would have achieved at any point.
I had some experiences where I played with a few friends together, but was never something serious even when we made a very interesting cover of the song Zombie by The Cranberries as documented here (sadly nothing survived from that trial). But now, a few weeks ago, this changed and now I'm part of a (proto)-band.
Granted, this is an interesting experience. Who knows where will this end, for now my main objective is to have fun and slightly improve my playing.
