what are they going to play? Looking at a local CL ad for a bassist. I've always had trouble with the "repertoire" question. Do people actually keep a list of the songs they know? What kind of list would you expect this band to be playing? In my past experiences, when I email the band, and ask them for a songlist, usually to see if I'm even interested in the gig (I can usually judge the taste and age group of a band based on their set choice,) I get the canned "thanks but no thanks" response. For the past several years, I've played a lot of different genre's, mainly it's been r&b/soul/blues but I also love the genre's listed above. OR I could just ask them for a list and if I get rejected I'll inform them that "alot" is not a word. How can I possibly know what they are talking about? Might as well read "know laskdjfaksdj of songs!! We do laskdjfaksjdf of originals..."
