Here's my situation. I'm an ambitious teenager who aspires to become a successful musician. I need to know my options as a bassist. Is session playing worthwhile or popular these days? I'm planning on doing that so it forces me to think on my feet BEFORE I settle down into a Rock ensemble (no, I'm not some lazy bum who just wants the chicks and the money. I'm in it for the music, thanks). Are there other options I could do? I plan on going to college and majoring in music (I play bass trombone rather well) and become as well-learned I can before I tackle the industry. Thoughts? Any advice will do, please! I'm planning my whole life here!
