I am a newbie bass player, I have been noodling for almost a year and I just started taking lessons. I only recently learned the neck and all that. I've been wanting to join a band forever, and my sister's boyfriend tells me that there is a good local Metal/Punk band looking for a bass player. I'm not sure if they gig or what, but I want to atleast try to play with them. What should I do? Should I just root note 8ths to whatever the guitarist is playing? I can't make up anything fancy, and I'm not that good. Should I just be confident? How do auditions usually go down? Should I not worry about it and just try my best not to sound lame?
