      Jazz Band

      I want to join jazz band next year at school, but I'm not sure if I'm good enough yet. I've been playing for about one and a half years, teaching myself (with some books). While I can improv pretty well, and I know my chords, I dunno if I'll be able to play a song written on a staff on the guitar.

      Anyone out there able to give me any insight?

      Is your school's jazz band competitive. If so they'll have try outs. Goto that and they'll evaluate you.

      I don't know about the chord thing, but I think you will need to be able to do that. But then again jazz is mainly improv.

      Well, improv is pretty much my forte. The thing is that they don't have tryouts, I just have to join.

      Then I'd say give it a try.
