So I've done some searching on other audition advise related topics but I want to be a little more specific. I do know sight reading is a large component of the process and over the last few months I've been dedicating most of my time to just that. I have The Real Book 6th edition bass clef book and that's been my main practice tool. My question is how do I know when I'm ready? I can get through 3/4 of the songs in the book semi comfortable the first go around but I'm not sure if I should be able to read everything the first go around when auditioning or not? If anyone has any songs that I should definitely be able to play through the first time then that would be helpful. Also, if i were to be given a piece and could not read it, would it be acceptable to play over the chord chart instead of reading it note by note? Besides sight reading, what else should I work on when preparing for the audition and are their any books or tools out there that I could use to prepare me further? Thanks!
