Hey guys, I wasn't sure if this should go here, but I suppose it is Muse-connected, and Banter didn't seem the right place. Basically, I play bass, have done for three years, and (according to teachers and friends) am pretty good. Not great, but good. I have an audition next Thursday (14/9), and am really unsure as to what to play. I've narrowed it down to a few songs: Muse - TIRO A great song, that I can play with real feeling, and can improvise over the top. My main concern is that it could be considered 'easy'. Muse - Hysteria Hysteria has always been a sort of 'trump card' of mine, as it is fast and impressive to family and friends, but not too difficult to play. However, any mistake is very difficult to recover from and I often try and speed it up too much. Muse - Futurism A great, fairly difficult bassline that I've just learned to play. I don't have the timing down quite yet, but I'm confident I can do that in the time. Seems like it would really impress and therefore my current first choice. RHCP - 21st Century My current favourite song, mainly because the bassline makes me feel like a total badass. There isn't much more to it than there is at first, and it's surprisingly difficult to play. It also sounds weird without the effects (that I don't have). RHCP - Dani California Similar to TIRO, but probably the only one I could slap. Would probably fall into the easy category, as it never really changes. Which of these would be the best, and if none, feel free to suggest something you think I'd like/would work. If it helps, a friend of mine played 'I Want It Back' - Jackson 5, and the kind of stuff I like (and would therefore be able to play with proper intonation and feeling) is: Muse U2 Coldplay Rush Green Day RCHP Metallica AC/DC Thanks.
