The Experience

It was an accident, really.

I was in the local music shop when I overheard someone asking the salesman if he knew of any bass players who were looking for a gig. Before I realized what I was saying, I had volunteered myself. It was at that point that I realized the guy asking the question was the frontman for the coolest band in town. I found myself stammering a response when he asked for my number, knowing that I was probably in over my head. This band was good, and I figured they’d never call me.

Still, I went home excited, and practiced more than usual. I wanted to make sure that if I got the chance, I wouldn’t embarrass myself. A few days went by, and I had all but given up hope, when the phone rang. My audition would be that evening.

I was hoping that the routine of changing strings would help settle my nerves, so I grabbed a set of Blue Steels. As I was working, I kept telling myself that if I kept things simple and solid, I could play with these guys. But the butterflies were as strong as ever. I was starting my deep-breathing exercises when the Blue Steel package caught my eye. The words “Cryogenic Activated” leaped out at me, and I thought that maybe if someone froze me, I’d be cool enough to pass this audition. And it was as simple as that. I pictured myself as cool as could be, and the nerves disappeared.

And when it was time for the audition, I was ready. A quick touch of the strings reminded me to keep cool, and then I just played in the pocket and let my tone speak for itself. And it must have been convincing, because I got the gig…

Dean Markley Blue Steel bass strings. Keep your cool.
