For a year now I've planned on being an electrician for a living. I'm even taking a 2 year high school course for it. Now, I don't really feel like making a living off of that. I don't know what to do now. I'd like to be able to play bass for a living, I don't know where I'd start with that though. I know I have the skill and ability to play in a big band.

I just would like some suggestions on things I could do after high school that ISN'T a career or job, but I could still live and have a good life and keep me busy.

I'd also like to know, if I were to audition playing bass somewhere, where would I start?

Adds saying you're a hired gun.

A lot of bands need bassists nowadays, too much damned guitarists. Also, learn to read sheet music if you already haven't.

Work on wind turbines. The son of my mother's friend made $10,000 over the summer apparently, he's in college I believe. Not bad for that age.

Fail. Do you have any idea how good the money is? Of course you do.

Pretty much nothing.

If you want good money, stick with the electrician thing. It's not like it's going to stop you from playing bass. You just won't play bass for a living.

The money isn't SUPER awesome or anything. I just think it will be boring to do for a living. I'm not worried about money that much, just being happy with what I do for a living.

If you're a decent bassist and not an asshole you'll gig every week but it dont hurt to have a "day job" bro.

I know exactly where you're coming from, but you just can't let your job take over your life.

And yes, the money IS super awesome. Electricians are in the same category as plumbers. Housecalls = absurd overcharging.

I'm kind of in the same boat, I have no idea what to do for a career and although I'd like to do something guitar or even music related it's not easy.

Where in New York if your close to the city you'll probably find some band easily. I did. I actually went through 15.
