By RHCP- that song is a downright hoss right hand workout to play all the way through- my forearm is burning.

And also, I'm auditioning for a band on bass 2 weeks from now- any suggestions to make myself stand out?

With or without a pick? If you're doing it with your fingers, yeah, its rough. I've never gotten more than ~1 and a half minutes with my fingers. And I suck with a pick. lol

If you're auditioning for a band, do they already have songs? Learn them if you can get recordings or something. Also, be nice, but not a pushover.

fingerstyle- I usually have to take a break halfway through.

It's a split-off project with 3 of the guys from this band- www.myspace.com/gtaoutlet

But it's gonna be harder and edgier with more classic rock influence

To be honest, the only thing you should ever be at an audition is yourself. Whenever I've tried out musicians for various bands I've been in, I've always been more impressed by the people who have a good, natural energy and aren't there to show off. If they're serious, they won't be looking for the best player, but the person they feel they can spend all those gruelling hours practicing with, and someone who will add to the sound- being yourself is the only real and tue way you will stand out in an audition.

I suck with a pick, so what I do when I play this song, is I use my fingernail as a pick and can alternate pick with that technique a million times better than I can with a real pick!

Ya, PUniverse is a big right hand workout. Spent a couple of days a while back working through it and finally got it with fingers. Haven't tried to play the whole thing in a while though. Could play it with a pick, but it feels awkward.

As for the audition, stick with what Delirium said.

But what style do they play, jw?

I actually prefer the attack of a pick on that song, and I guess Flea does too. And +1 to Delirium, don't try to be something you're not. Who knows what you might get stuck into.

for the overall style I'd say pop-punk kind of sound but a lot more musical complexity and drive
