I don’t know if I ever found an audition particularly satisfying. Most of the work I got resulted from someone knowing what I did, perhaps second hand, and getting in contact. Being able to read live was highly beneficial. The most annoying audition was an hour drive to a bar. Sitting listening to the band and only after the show being told the guy they were replacing had decided to stay. I played with them for an hour, but it was kind of pointless. And a waste of 8 hours of my life. I never considered another job based on an ad and stuck to the network of contacts.
