That's a very subjective question. If you want to play in a Dream Theater or Rush tribute band you have to be very talented indeed.

If you want to get together with some friends and play some Blink 182 tunes you can literally get by knowing about 5 chords. Or, if you're a bass player, about 5 notes.

The issue to avoid is agonizing over whether or not your band is good enough to go out and play some shows. You don't really have that many rights here in the land of the free, but one of them is that you can go out and hustle a show for your band and it doesn't matter if you aren't very good or are fantastic, your odds of making a name for yourself locally or even regionally are about the same. I've seen plenty of shows with my son's uber-metal band to know that no matter how bad you are, you're probably get a fair hearing with kids, especially if all the other bands are actually worse than you!

So, my advice is to get your lessons while you are actually working things out with a band. That way your instructor will know where you are at, and you have somewhere to put his latest teachings into practice. But get the teacher that gets it. If you want to learn Yngwie Malmsteen riffs, you should probably find a teacher who knows who Yngwie Malmsteen is, so do some music teacher shopping around.

If you have a Guitar Hero guitar, you have to play multiplayer. For the first Rock Band, you can't play bass on Solo Tour mode, but it allows you to on every other one.

On Rock Band 2, you do the same thing. This version allows you to play bass on every mode.
