I was at a gig and this guy asked me, "Are you a good player?" I really froze, cause sincerily I think I suck, but I really don't want to scare him off. I told him I was still a beginer.
What would you answer?
If I thought I sucked I wouldn't be worried about scaring someone off. I'd be worried about GETTING the gig. If I thought I was good enough for the gig I'd tell him that. If I thought I was a thousand times the player he needed I'd say I'm pretty good. If it was just conversation I'd tell them how long I'd been playing and what sort of stuff I'd done.
