    How long? ZZ Top's Tush; not too long. Yes' Heart of the Sunrise; longer.

    Thanks again for all the replies I wasn't expecting so many, I managed to learn 2 in 5 hours, I was struggling at first but I found if I downloaded the songs on to Audacity and then slowed the tempo down it was easy to pick out the notes on the faster bits which was a big help, I also took out the bass so I could put my own bass lines in, just need to keep repeating them. Audition is next Sunday so hopefully it will go ok

    Normally you have some leeway on covers. I highly doubt you need note for note. Get the roots and play off them, don't add much, or strip too much away. Try to land in the middle and make sure to stick the beginning, bridge and ending and you will be a happy kat. BTW, I have an audition this Sunday also. :D

    Audition went well, friendly and talented musicians so I've joined them. Its also great not doing covers and having the freedom to put my bass lines to the songs. Thanks again for all the reply's off to learn more songs.
