I auditioned for a group last week on bass. The singer/keyboardist was a no show (and looks to be out of the group now). The guitarist struggled through some vocals and I laid a few backups down. They asked if I led at all. I said no, but am willing to get more lessons to do so, adding I took lessons a couple years back to compliment a 3-piece I was working with, and have been singing since, but stopped lessons while between bands. They called the next day offering the spot. I said I'd arrange lessons to brush my voice up and the guy got hesitant. He said I could sing OK but they "didn't feel it would work for what they're doing". (commercial rock covers). Is that a polite way of saying I can't sing? I was kinda looking forward to working on my voice with them, and am feeling a little down at being "just the bass player". I'm not sure if that's a good foot to start off with, and am worried the bad feelings will linger, especially if they can't fill that vocal/keyboard slot quickly. Any insight appreciated as usual.
