Gotta agree with jeb here. Anyone who has some free time and will can learn to play other peoples songs, you just have to practice, some will learn faster than others depending on talent. Writing a song, developing an original style and making it all sound good with a group of people where everyone has their own ideas, is a completely different game.

But if you ask me would i play in a cover band getting 150$ a night, just playing music, hell its like a dream come true! :D

Coming up with something interesting and unique is certainly hard--but 90% of self-professed "musicians" don't come close to that. Instead they riff on the same patterns, play the same chords in different orders, and basically just rip off whatever their main influences are and never stretch themselves beyond the next "trick". And that's why most original musicians don't make $150 a night, or even break even.

Personally I play music strictly because it entertains me. I was never amazing at it and never claimed to be.

That said, there's always been something I just can't dig about a cover band. I'm not going to bitch about people who choose to do it or people who like it, but something about it always made me a little uneasy...

Cover bands are fine, they serve a purpose... People are drinking and want to hear a few familiar songs, sets the mood for a fun night out. They wanna hear the Stones, they wanna hear The Who, Zepplin, and Skynard etc... And spend the $ drinking... That's why they make $150 a night. No science behind that. And again that's all fine and well. But you shouldn't cut someone down on their playin skills when you're playing other peoples music. Lesson is just to have fun and rock out.

How would you rate your skill? What's the hardest song you can play?

Speed wise, I'm not that challenged, but technical ability is so/so.

Orion, 46 & 2 and Claypools NIB intro I can play pretty clean.
I've always been a fan of slap/pop style... RHCP, Mudvayne and stuff like that, and while I can do it, I have a hard time maintaining tempo/style for an entire 3-4 minute song and revert back to playing "finger style". Most people can't tell, but it pisses me off that I can't do it. As far as "in the pocket rock/blues/motown stuff, I'm pretty much spot on.

I'd rate myself as an 8 for pocket playing, but closer to a 4.5 on the technical side.

99% of the population doesn't know the difference with the slap stuff if it isn't perfectly clean. Especially a guy like Flea who isn't playing even his own stuff all that cleanly.

I do enjoy the theme music for the television show Seinfeld, which sounds like the style you are discussing here in this thread.
