    I'm looking for some input here from people that are full time session bassists, or people with experience. Ever since I've started playing bass, I've been dreaming of being a session bass. I love playing rock, jazz, funk, country, bluegrass, reggae, and just about anything else. So, I'm guessing the best first step is to go to music school. How did you guys start getting hired? How did you go about getting recognized in the community?

    Thanks guys! :hyper:

    I hate to say it, but you probably should do a search. This dream has been crushed (or artificially inflated) in many previous threads.

    SNAP I completely forgot to search. Thanks for reminding me!
