Re: Had a Guitarist try out today..... oh boy....
I posted this audition story two years ago long story short:
I audition for a very well known regional act in my area. The guitarist / leader tells me "we have a set of drums for you to play" So i bring some cymbals and my snare. They give my six songs to learn on cd and i was prepared. I arrive at the audition to discover the drumset they were providing was literally a "toy" drumset, complete with concrete block to keep the bass drum from moving. I played my heart out and nailed the audition even on the crappy drums. Turns out my audition was simply a "going through the motions" as i later found out the drummer had already been selected the day before. Total waste of time!
