Help me prep for an audition with a song recommendation.

Post by Darryncosta » December 24th, 2018, 10:23 am

Okay- I am a sax player (17 years playing) and have doubled on bass for about 10ish. However I have always played bass in punk or metal bands. Playing horn covered my love for jazz and funk.

I have chops on bass, but I’m feeling a little nervous for an audition for a band that has a Snarky Puppy sound. They sent me an original for me to get familiar with (which is rad) and asked me if there was a cover I wanted them to learn (nice of them to offer). *** Moderator Edit - there were three links to external sites added after the original post was approved. I've removed them ***


Here’s the thing, I don’t want to recommend something like Time Bomb from Rancid- which while has a groove bass line, probably wouldn’t be right.

What’s a funky song with an interesting bass line that isn’t Dean Town?

Thanks for the recommendations. Also, no slap please. Not because I don’t like it- I just suck at it.
