(This could maybe be moved to the stories section) How many of you have gone to auditions where the singer has invited random musicians to form their band? Random, being different styles, influences, skill levels, instruments, whatnot. I recently attended my second random start up jam. I showed up and there was a keyboard player, 2 guitarists (one tuned standard, the other drop C), and a guitarist/bassist, and me on Bass. The singer/organizer then told us that it was his plan to write original songs, and become famous. One person was telling others to play things an octave lower, then a 'half-octave' lower then just a half step lower. And in my opinion he didn't know the difference between the 3. There was a cool jam where the keyboardist was playing something he wrote and my and the other guitarist were able to pick up what we was doing as he called out his chords. The time this happened before everyone was at least into the same types of music. I actually found my drummer that way. It just seems to turn into a train wreck. Then after the dust settles the more like-minded people get together and go their seperate ways. I'm in a good mid-point as far as my skill goes. I would expect to find as many less skilled players as much as I would expect to find player with more knowledge than I have. Any other stories?
