Hi all, I've never posted in here, but the past few weeks I have been browsing through reading up on DB's because I eventually wanted to get into them. Anyways, it seems "eventually" now means "immediately". I am a senior in high school and was planning on majoring in music, auditioning with my main instrument, an electric bass. While touring a school (Texas State) my friends and I had a meeting with their head of music there, and they told me that in order to major in their Jazz studies, I needed to audition with a DB as well as my electric bass guitar. So, really, my main question is this: Do you think I will be able to pick up the instrument and be able to play well enough for an audition into a school? Auditions are in April, I believe. I know it is a totally new instrument, but I was just wondering what some of you thought. Thanks.
