Hello all! First of all, I know that I've seen threads discussing what I'm going to ask about but for some reason have been unable to find them...So I apologize in advance. A dream I've always had is to be able to play professionally in both a studio and live performance setting. Right now I'm playing consistently at my church and for our youth services and the occasional fill in spot but nothing has been paid up to this point. I'm wanting to get to the point that I am a marketable bassist and can be confident that I can land a paid studio gig when the opportunity presents itself. What are the key components of a successful studio musician? I know some of you on here are successful in this arena so I'm very interested in any tips, advice, etc. that you care to offer. Thanks in advance!
