He should be able to play his instrument, and he should like the same/similar music as you guys. Have him over for a jam session to see if things will click.

Do you expect him to tell you how to play guitar?

- (S)He needs to at least be willing to listen to your kind of music, and if (s)he likes it, even better.
- Playing a bass means at least knowing what root notes to play, and even better would be if (s)he knows how the neck is build up, knowing octave figures etc.
- The way of playing must simply be good.

They should like your sort of music, get along with you, and you should like what you hear when they play.
