      .... don't mention that your wife would be willing to manage the band

      ... don't ask about choreographed dance moves

      ... don't ask them if they know "Freebird"

        Repeatedly yank your cord out of your instrument by stepping on it.

            Wear dress shorts, white socks, and black lace up shoes. Suggest the adoption of uniforms for gigs.

              Run across the room and slide on your knees during a solo.

              Hand out Neo-Nazi literature.

              Try to screw the drummer's girlfriend while he's in the john.

              When you first walk in, give them all a 5 minute long multi-position soul brother handshake routine.

              And don't sing man...just don't.

                        Or play a single note at all. Stick to chords and tell them you're not only happy to be part of the rhythm section, you want to be as far in the background as possible. In fact, don't even play single note runs when you're warming up. Don't give them the idea that you ever had any intention of taking a solo at any point in your life.

                        Do:

                        Stick to common modern mantras. It's all about the song. Stuff like that.

                        Ask after every song if you're too loud and wouldn't they like you to turn down.

                        Ask the singer what his "motivation" was for writing such deep lyrics.

                        Compliment the drummer for "laying back".

                        Follow this advice, and the gig is yours.

                          Don't :

                          - Put your bacon to their heads.

                          - Ask for more cowbell.

                          - Let them know your amp goes to 11.

                          - Talk with a pirate inflection or in Pig Latin.

                          - Ask if they play both rock and country.

                            Yeah, that's exactly what I meant to say. How many times have you posted that paragraph, 3,000? I hope you have all your cute little catch phrases saved so you can cut and paste them in. Otherwise you are a strong candidate for carpal tunnel syndrome.

                              Take your wife.
