ok folks ... got my first audition in a week or so. I found an add on craigslist for a band needing a bass player and contacted them.. they practice and all live a few miles from me (Awesome!) .. and need to replace the bass player they have because they don't think he's serious about learning the songs, and it takes him awhile to do that. These guys are all in their 40's, been playing for 20+ years, were in a heavy metal band together in the late 80's early 90's that actually played some big gigs here in detroit. I told them about myself over the phone .. I've been playing for a year and a half, grew up in music .. know a good 40 - 60 cover songs already .. sat in with a few local bands .. etc.. seemed to hit it off good and they emailed me about 15 songs .. these guys aren't a working band yet, just playing and getting their list down .. below is their list of songs: Space Truckin Deep Purple Same Old Song and Dance Aerosmith Kryptonite 3 Doors Down American Band Grand Funk Saturday Night Special Skynyrd Walkin The Dog Aerosmith All Right Now The Free Get A Haircut George Thorogood No More No More Aerosmith You Wreck Me Tom Petty American Girl Tom Petty Highway Star Deep Purple 30 Days in The Hole Humble Pie My Own Worst Enemy LIT i knew 2 of the songs on that list ... over the last 2 days i can now play space truckin, and get through highway star pretty well. Just seeing that they do aersmith and play highway star as well, I can tell these guys are good solid musicians. i've tinkered with a few others and can learn them pretty easily. how many should i learn, i was thinkin 5 or so then contact them in the middle of the week, set something up for the weekend.. thanks!
