Before you laugh and scoff, let me explain. I know that this is 4/4 time signature, so it makes perfect sense to count "1, 2, 3, 4" I've been in contact with a working cover band whose bass player is stepping out. They've asked me to join them on stage for 1 song (the lead guitarists worded it "nothing like a live tryout"). I have never gigged, and I'm expecting immediate stage fright I chose Van Morrison's "Brown Eyed Girl" because it's pretty straight-forward, with a distinctive bass line. I wanted to play something I won't need to think too much about, since there's no chance I'll be comfortable. Anyways, does your drummer usually count you in? The song starts with approach notes, that I believe fall on "4 and". I just want to nail it since this will be the band's first impression of me.
