Man, it's not the first time I'm going through this (at all!), but it's the first time I'm auditioning with: a) No material (they were admant about not providing any) b) Knowing the drummer is kickass c) A vague description of what we're playing (all originals) They basically said "we'll chat a bit, watch you play alone, with us and then we'll make a decision after seeing the other bassists". I'm used to a "you got the job" or "get your bum %?$ outa here" on the spot situation, waiting is gonna be a $/%&. This is for a trio with a female singer/guitarist and skins, so nothing I'm not used to, but I forgot Paul Piche's catalog a long time ago (basically our French Cat Stevens) and there's supposed to be a lot of world beats, jazzy and blue influence in there. This will be Good Ear Training(TM) for sure.
