Hey everyone, I was just thinking the other day about how many of us here are pro players, how many are semi-pro and the the rest of us at varying degrees of playing for fun. My question to the pro and semi-pro players is "When an how did you make the change to be a professional musician?" Did y'all have a few offers for a paid gig that used to be a freebie or decide that once you have a certain skill level you'd only play for pay? As a band member, band leader or freelancer? I searched but I didn't see a thread dedicated to this topic. Anyone care to share their story?
