Listen... I replied to an ad in the music section...a band that plays pop/punk/power-pop (Goo Goo Dolls/Foo Fighters/Blink 182 in one he says) was looking for a BASS player. But I've only been playing bass for three months. But I've been playing guitar for two years. Here's the deal...I've basically been emailing back and forth with this guy...it's only him (the guitarist) and a drummer. I guess for now they want a three-piece band. I don't really know. I've told him my situation...that I really dont' know any songs on my bass...and that I can only play scales at the moment. He seemed to be alright with it. But he's just asked me in his second email to me if I could come up with basslines to their original songs. So how would I do that? He says, he'd help me out...but I'm not sure if he'd know how...or not. So what do you say to me then? I'm not sure if I should join the band since I'm so inexperienced. But I mean, if I'm offered into the band if we meet up, then I definitely will say yes. It'd help me musically I'd think...make me practice more...I'm not really into that style of music he described...I mean, I like it, but it's not the kind of music I'd start on my own in a band. But I'm open to all kinds of music so... Thanks in advance for any helpful advice or suggestions...especailly on the basslines and joining a band good or bad...thanks.
