I have been practicing with a local group here in Hollister, but they have other commitments and can only practice infrequently. For that reason, I won't wait for them and any other bands, I will practice on my own.
My goal is to play string bass for jazz standards, jazz swing and mellow jazz. Therefore, I will discard all practice of other music genres and concentrate on what I love.
I am currently gathering sheet music and chord charts of songs from "the Great American Song Book," that is, standards like "Moon Glow," "Star Dust," "Misty," "All of Me," etc. I will make it my business to learn many of these songs, and then look for a jazz trio or quartet who loves the same music.
I am cutting to the chase.
