Not sure where to post this but: I like playing prog rock (Rush, Dream Theater) and whatever you would classify Dave Matthews as. I listen to a variety of stuff though. I recently started listening to (mostly) the Yellow Jackets after someone told me they want to start a band in a similar style, as well as Karizma. Not what I expected, but cool stuff nonetheless. Anyway I play a fretted 4. I've been hearing fretless 5 string stuff on some of the songs. I could probably comp some of that stuff up an octave, but think that would ruin some of the sound. I'm also not familiar with how some of these songs are constructed. My dilema is this: Should I agree to play with this group based on my situation? Would you? Again I'm not sure what these basslines follow or how they're constructed. Traditional jazz is my weak point, and I've started taking lessons again just for the theory aspect of it. Any advice? Keep in mind I like to be challenged and want to play in a group again, but don't want to bring them down if I can't keep up.
