Ok so this is the story.
A couple of months ago my band was asked to play at a motorcycle club in July and we thought it would be fun. We were the only band playing that night so we had 4 hours to play.

A couple of weeks later our bassist says he's going to Spain on vacation and he can't rearrange. Its not a big deal, I know lots of people who plays the bass.
I ask a good friend of mine if he wants to play bass, he accepts.
I send him all the songs and he says he is learning them, this was 2 weeks ago.

Last week I told him we were going to start practicing together but he didn't respond, I called him and he didn't answer. And now he's ignoring me and I can't reach him in any way. The gig is in three days.

Me and my band is not the only people mad at him, the motorcycle club is pissed, they're going to lose lots of money.

What should I do?

Oh, btw, he lives in another city with his mom but his dad lives here in my city.

what kind of music do you guys play... because as much as my bassist heart hates to say it maybe you don't need a bassist?
#12
Play the gig without a bass they just stand in the background and look cool anyway.
#13
Get the motorcycle gang and kick the bastard's ass.
It would be as fun for them than the covers, and maybe even more.
And BANG! - you're gonna learn the fag to be more responsible next time.
****, man, you're in a really ****ed.

Stop whining to the Pit and go to his house.

I mean, there is probably a good reason why he isn't responding.

You could always still find a bassist.
I mean the bass isn't that hard of an instrument to play, it's like one step up from the kazoo isn't it?

if you guys have two guitarists, put one of you guys on bass.


This.

If your songs have simple bass parts (which a lot of songs do), find a new bassist who'll be able to learn them in time.

Or feed the guitar through a bass amp, and turn up the bass setting on the amp. That way, it'll sound like bass is following the guitar.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Stalking people usually works, you might get a restraining order against you, but it's alright. That just makes you badass.

It's just bass.
No one cares about it.

Your not a hippie, just a ****ing moron.

Hire some really good bass player to learn the songs ASAP. I say hire because they may not blend with your style, but a couple bucks could convince them for one gig.
