Find out what really happens in a professional recording studio and apply it to your recording sessions.
What occurs during a big-time, professional recording session can be easily applied to make even the most casual recording session a successful venture. In The Studio Musician's Handbook, best-selling author Bobby Owsinski and in-demand studio bassist Paul Ill reveal the inner workings of a major Hollywood recording session, including a look at the players themselves. You'll learn how you become a studio musician, who's hiring and how much you should get paid, what kind of skills you need and what gear you must have, proper session etiquette, and how to apply these skills in every type of recording session.
In addition, the authors have created individual session musician guides for guitar, bass, drums, vocals, keys, horns, and strings. Interviews with famous and influential session players are also featured, and as a bonus, an accompanying DVD takes you inside an actual recording date in a world-class studio with world-class musicians.
