So my band and I have got this school band thing coming up and we have to audition on Monday and we wanna add Welcome To The Jungle to our set. The thing is we have only 2 practices of 2-3 hours before then.
Both guitarists know it inside out, our drummer can do it but our bassist hasn't started learning it yet. As an adamant Appetite For Destruction fan i know the lyrics and can sing it.

So do you think its possible to get done in the short space of time we have?

Yeah. The bass is not THAT hard. Besides, it's rock, it's not meant to be perfect. I think you'll be able to pull it off nicely.

Good luck man!

Shouldn't be a problem dude, just get the bassist to work on it.


Rock hard man, I hope you win.

Being a bassist myself,i don't like saying these types of things...but...

If your bassist can't learn that song that fast,he's a lost cause.

Get someone to record the audition dammit! These kind of threads always make me excited to hear the final result. You have a singer that can pull the song off?

My friends band did it and i was HORRIBLE!! Don't let that happen to you. They said the exact same things as you are. The guitarist knew it well and the singer knew the song like the back of his hand but the bassist didn't know it very well. They ended up ****ing up from the beginning till end. The delay was set bad so the intro wasn't good at all, they messed up the solo and the bassist forgot the entire song. The singing was the only decent thing in the cover. Worst thing I've ever heard.

BTW, good luck. Don't be nervous. Nothing will go wrong

Tool, anyone?
Alter Bridge, maybe?
A bit of John Mayer?
Some beethoven sounds delightful, as well.

We just had practice and it was sweet without the bass! The bassist is learning it tonight for a practice 2moro! All will be fine (hopefully)

We're also doing Bulls On Parade (RATM)!

Pfft! Everyone covers Welcome To The Jungle. If you're covering something off of Apettite, cover Rocket Queen or My Michelle.

My Michelle is a great song to cover.

EDIT: So is Out Ta Get Me.

And I'm sure you'll pull the song off fine. If your bassist is so much as half-decent, he should be able to learn that song in no time.

Just make sure you do what Guns do live. Start of by shouting:

Do you know where the *uck you are? You're in the Jungle baby, you're gonna die

It's a sure winner.

While you're at it, why just not compress Appetite For Destruction into one epic 40-minute song?

If you are gonna do Welcome To The Jungle try and get the intro as close to the record as possible. One of the best intros ever its just ****ing insanely good really.
