Hello to everyone! Just signed up today, but I have been lurking for the last week or so. Little background info...I go to school at Penn State, been playing bass for a little over 2 years. That's a little misleading though, because I started guitar when I was 13 but quit around 10th grade when I fell in love with bass; that helped my dexterity out quite a bit. I'd really like to look for a band up at school, but I'm not quite sure I'm good enough. I can play most of the stuff I try,my teacher says I have excellent rhythm and dexterity and whatnot, but I know my 2 years is nothing. I'm afraid of embarassing myself, especially since I've just started learning notes and music theory. My question basically is, what skill level would you say is adequate for trying out for a band? My friends say I'm good enough, but it's not like they're going to say "Man, you really suck!"
