We have been auditioning bass players.
I send them the bass tab and MP3's for 3 songs a week in advance.
One guy who joined us the other night played so far off from the
original that he changed the feeling of the song completely.
I asked him what he was playing and he said that he doesn't believe in
playing songs like the originals.
He would rather play his own renditions.
While I agree that every song does not have to be note for note I think
they should be close.
Do yoiu learn songs note for note?
Can you learn songs note for note?
He who pays calls the tune...
Without fails I've found the guys who insist on "their own renditions" at
auditions really can't play - period.
Romeo Rose is a prime example...
