Does it matter where you live? I don't live in "big city" area. I live in the richmond, va area. Not sure if there is a lot of studio work to be done outside of big cities. How does one get into studio sessions? I know I have the talent and dedication to one day become a full time musician, but as far as getting into it? I have no idea lol I'll use Gary Clark Jr(who is awesome btw) for an example. I was watching him on guitar center sessions and have watched youtube videos and was really paying attention to the bass. And I'm thinking "Dude! I can do that! Easily!" But HOW do I get my name in there as purely a bassist? Last question and I'll stop! I have just now started taking lessons and am learning to sight read. How big of an advantage does that give someone?
