Earlier this year, our bass player at church went on hiatus. His wife was pregnant and they were attending all sorts of classes and getting things ready for the impending day of baby. I had started playing djembe with the worship team to help fill in when we were lacking percussion, but since our drummer had returned, I thought I might take a run at playing bass. I had only played on Rock Band before, but everyone told me that it was pretty much the same. I didn’t believe them, but I didn’t see any harm in trying.
