Hey guys, as I've said several times before, I'm joining the army. I'm a cadet now and considering either being an aiborne ranger, a heli pilot, or playing in one of the army rock bands. To join te army bands you have to pass an audition and I need to get a rough idea of what my playing grade is. I know some theory. I understand scales and keys, key signatures, chords. etc. I am a very versatile player. I play from Joe Satriani's Surfing with the Alien to Gary Moore, to David Gilmour's Coming Back to Life. What would your estimate be?

I have no Idea but I just wanted to say THANK YOU for what you will do for us...

BTW that sounds really cool. What exactly are the army's bands? Please tell us more about it!

Well, you get paid money and all you do is play music, can be jazz, rock, metal, whatever. It's kinda like being a pro touring musician, but you get paid less, don't do drugs, and stay in awesome shape. No, you don't have to go to Iraq or Afghanistan. I'm trying to amass recruiters points, which help you choose where you get deployed, so I can go to Germany. Thanks for your support. I'm from a marine family, so once again I'm the weird guy lol.

why dont you just find a syllabus and take a grade test, if you pass the grade thats what you are (at least)

And wow ,,, how brave are you ,,, you join the marines and feel so duty bound that you wont go to the nastiest war zone currently active in the world ,,, my friend from the British armed forces salutes your bravery ,,,,,,

What branch of the British armed forces is he? Maybe its just a typo, but what I assume to be "won't" is throwing me off on what your trying to say.

But anyway, I don't mean like a scale of one to ten, I guess you'd have to google it.
