View Full Version : So i've an audition for a band...

It's on sunday and it's too late now to start practising so i'm going to wait until tomorrow. Basically, i've been asked to learn Holy Wars by Megadeth and Damage Inc. by Metallica. Both the bassist (that I found earlier) and I have been asked to audition.

They're not that easy and I have to learn the solos too but my question was...

Since they're not going to be too easy how would you advise me to learn these songs? I generally don't have regular practice structures and I want an efficient way to have these down by tomorrow night. I have tomorrow completely free so time shouldn't be an option.

The songs are fairly long so there's a lot to remember with a day's practice.

divide them into parts, and when you get one part down, get on with the next

well structure the song into parts, or even break it down to riffs. Learn the intro, then the verse, then the chorus... After that you can just repeat those parts when neded (verse-chorus-verse-bridge...). As for the solos, do the same i gues. Learn bar by bar and then play them together.

Sorry mate - this question is better said in either MT or the respective instrument forum.
