ok, so i have an audition coming up, have never really done one before. Its always been i meet people get to know them, then figure out they play and then we start jamming once weve been hanging out. Just wanted some advice to ease the jitters, or things that are good/bad in an audition environment. Im comfortable playing and my skills, just new people, basically starting from scratch with ideas ie. new band. Sounds like theyre level headed, my age (23-27) and around same skills. Just looking for support or advice on how to handle a first meeting/ audition, you know so it runs smooth.

Well, if they play jazz, don't do a blazing metal solo. Or conversely, if they play metal, don't do a jazz chord progression. I mean, stands to reason that you'd try to show you can play the type of music they play.

Get slightly buzzed beforehand.

Always say words like "groovy" and "stylin."

If they have any material out recorded with prior bandmates, or demoed, be sure to check it out; get the best idea of their sound that you can.

Bring girls who will sleep with them. I'd let someone in my band who brought girls to bang. I mean isn't that why anyone plays music, for teh ladiez?
