I got a call from a friend last night. He's going to be auditioning for a band next weekend. He plays guitar backing up belly dancers in an ensemble and has played with a small group that plays in Old Folk's homes. He's never played in a rock band before. The group he's hoping to play with does '80's and '90's covers. They have bass, drums, keys and female singer. They recently lost the guitarist. He knows none of them, it's a "first date" with strangers. I told him to learn the songs as well as he can and go in and nail it and not worry about getting the gig or not. But if you were advising someone like my friend, what would you suggest? I'm going to refer him to this thread.
