Our bass player just out of nowhere quit right in the middle of us recording our debut album. We have a fairly large fan base, and would gig regularly. We are good friends, and I support his decision to pursue other passions. I don't understand why he'd drop ~$1k on all new bass equipment to just dip out though. This leaves us in a bad spot. He wasn't a fantastic bassist, but easily the best we've had. We need to find someone as good or better. I play bass very well, but I also sing and I can't do both at the same time. I'm not as cool as Sting. I'd ideally like to find someone who actually has a bass, and a bass amp. We get paid fairly well, and gig often. Besides wishing upon a star, how'd you guys find one?
