Tag the bassist, with his pride injured and his feelings hurt
Inktober 2019, Day 29: Injured

Day 29: Injured. It was hard for Tag to explain what hurt his feelings the most. It wasn’t that the gig had been bad, although it had. It wasn’t that he personally played badly; he knew he hadn’t. It was that despite his efforts, the gig had been terrible and the crowd still lapped it up. Like it didn’t matter how he, or anyone else, had played. The injury was to his integrity as a musician.
Sigh. His brother, who played first violin in the Agglomerate Symphony Orchestra, never had to deal with that. Any member played like a wet noodle, they were out on their ear. There was something honest about that.
