Had an audition yesterday. Had to decline afterwards.

I was corresponding with one of the guitar players all week. Song list was hit and miss. All classic rock, but there was some pretty heavy stuff from Judas Priest and Black Sabbath, while I don't mind listening too, I just don't see women liking very much. Those songs alone would exclude us from a a lot of places like wineries and some restaurants.

The two main reasons I declined was it was almost an hour drive one way to the house to practice. Second and even worse, I walk into the basement and it's cloudy with smoke. In one millisecond I knew this was not going to work. All the guys were nice. The sound was really unbalanced. I played, for the first time, someone else's kit. But I bore through the songs. Some I had played before. Some brand new. I did ok to good.

I was in a long list of candidates. Someone there when I got there. Someone waiting when I left.

Oh well. I learned a new lesson. Need to bring up the smoke issue for the next potential band. Not waste my time.
