In this video I make some recommendations on how to get gigs as a upright bassist. This can be useful if you have recently moved to a new town or are looking to get established in your local music scene. There’s a lot of ways you can get gigs, but all of them involve putting yourself out there and taking action, in this video I show you the best ways to go about it.
This video is the first in a short series called ‘Real World Gigging Tips for Double Bassists’ in which I cover a wide range of topics related to playing live.
I hope you enjoy this and if you have suggestions of your own on how to get gigs, please share them in the comments section below. It’s great to hear your thoughts so please join the conversation and tell us your ideas.
