    second time lucky....the computer crashed when i tried to post the first time.
    i've been playing for 3 years and i'm 19 years old.
    i'm trying out with a new band on monday theyre pop/rock, theyve had a few ep's out, toured the states a few times.
    i dont have a bass that i can use at the moment, i'm waiting for it to harden because i did a refin. the guitarist/vocalist is kindly going to sort out a bass for the jam for me.
    so any tips or advice for the jam? :help:
    brian :cool:

    hmmm I remember when I was 19.... even had a similar event at that time....

    advice, see if you get along with the drummer, try to figure out who is the real musical leader of the group ( so you can ask questions), and don't be afraid to make mistakes.... and don't hold back, play with authority, play like you mean it... don't be offended if you are told to turn down... or turn up.

    If it goes well and you get a second chance to play, practice like h*ll!!!! :hyper:
