    there's this band that's looking for a bassist and they want to meet me as soon as possible, but I asked them for a tape or CD cause all they play is originals and I'd put the basslines on the songs and then play them, but they said they didn't have any songs on CD yet, they're in the middle of recording, but anyways, they just want me to hear them play the songs and then I come up with the basslines right there. Is that normal? I guess I'm just a little intimidated by that, plus the drummer's been playing for 20 years.

    Go for it. Sounds like they're looking for someone with ideas. I love those kinds of auditions. Kinda of a jam-session. I'd relax and follow the drummer...
