Re: Putting myself out there ( uncle Larry, this ones for you)
So tomorrow at 3 pm is my actual "audition" with the band. One of them emailed me today asking what songs I wanted to do off the list she gave me. I've had absolutely no time to even look at these songs (and I told her that) but here's the ones I suggested:
Joan Jett, Hate Myself for Loving You
Kid Rock, All Summer Long
KT Tunstall, Black Horse and the Cherry Tree
and then any of the Fleetwood Mac and CCR tunes they had listed.
These are all, especially the first three, ones I felt that had a strong but easy beat to them that, if nothing ese, I can keep good time on. I'll go over them tonight and in the morning with what little time I have and then we'll see what happens.
Last night at lessons my teacher asked if I wanted to go over any songs and I told him no. Said I wanted to go in "raw" and let them know exactly what my natural abilities were instead of going in and over-impressing them with one or two well-rehearsed songs giving them a false sense of my skills. He seemed to think that was the right decision...I hope so. As long as the nerves don't get the best of me, I think it will be okay :)
Send good drumming vibes my way tomorrow!
I am deluded enough to think I can bring something to the table - Huey Lewis.
