I've posted a thread on this before, pointing out how I got so nervous for my bass audition.
Some of you gave me pretty good tips and helped me to put things in perspective, and for that I'm grateful.
As a person with ADD I have some trouble planning things out and knowing what the right order or practice is. So I'd like your advice on what things I'd have to practice for my audition. The annoying thing about this audition is that they will not say how good you have to be to get on this school. They ask you to play two songs and I'm considering Downtown Song from Anberlin to be one of them. It's not a great song, but I figured my band already knows this song and there's a bass solo in it. This saves a lot of work and I think the song will do. As for the second song I'm not certain. I think I'm going to create a medley to make them see I can do more that one genre.
Anyway I'd like your opinion. How would you handle this? Downtown Song is right about my level on playing the bass. Other than that I know the notes on the bass, simple scales but I have trouble keeping rhythm. All tips and excercises are very welcome.
