I'm looking to start a band. I'm pretty sick of doing covers of songs I don't have much interest in. I got an invitation to 'jam' with this one band come this weekend. They send me a list of tunes they know. Aside from a couple tunes I'm fine with and want to learn to play (list is very short), it's all music I don't have any interest in learning/playing. Sure this will be an experience to jam with others and improve my skill by learning the songs but, it feels transparent. They're more into mainstream popular music whereas I'm into the under-the-radar music. I don't know what to do. I'd like some input. I've considered learning 5 of the songs I like just to go jam and see if they'll blues jam with me but otherwise... I don't know.
