I've been thinking of finding people to play paying, regular gigs just to get a little cash influx. But I keep coming back to the same thought: I've had experience with playing in bands performing original music, and enjoy playing covers from time to time, but don't know how comfortable I'd feel in the role of a Hired Gun. Meaning, I know I could be adept at playing other people's music, or playing covers, but how could do people who are hired guns get "into" the music they're playing if they have not been directly involved in the creative process? Does this question make any sense? I want to use my playing abilities to make some money on the side as well as enjoy myself, but how do I get into enjoying this job and the music if I'm basically just performing a job (let alone the fact that I might only be business associates, rather than friends with the rest of the musicians)? I just don't know if I could take it seriously without having some sort of personal involvement with the music? Make sense? Any thoughts on this?
