I made the mistake of judging the book by it's cover. I'm in the process of launching a new band. We just need to find a lead guitarist. I went online and found a candidate. The dude's profile said all the right things in terms of experience, musical interests, gear, etc. After exchanging a few emails with him, he was saying all the right things. I thought for sure we had a solid candidate. Well, the guy showed up for the audition. Nice enough guy, but I think we all could tell before he played a note that this wasn't for him. Despite telling me he knew a bunch of songs on our list, he was only able to stumble through a few songs. I don't expect people to show up knowing a dozen songs, but you think they'd take the time to prepare and nail just a few songs? Lesson learned. Next time around I will insist on seeing/hearing demo material. Preferably video. So disappointing to waste an afternoon like that.
