    Just wanted to share this with my favorite online community, I'm getting paid to play! I auditioned for the spot of session player at my school and made it. Which means I can work 20 hours a week helping audio students with their projects and get paid for my time playing. I'm also an audio student, but I can't get paid for working on my own sessions lol. Its mostly 70's pop songs, but I can't complain about getting paid to play guitar.

    This should be happening more often... if talentless 20-something year olds can get paid rediculous amounts of money for shaking their butt around on a stage... just sayin'.

    Guitarists are so under-rated. I suck at playing, but I understand the crap it takes to get half decent enough to play in front of about 50-100 people, and that when you play live, that's about 20% of the talent you are capable of busting out in the comfort of your own home, with no pressure, and the hours it takes to get there. So yeah, it is a talent to admire.

    Why are you assuming that's not exactly what he's being paid to do at school? Even the next Eddie Van Halen does that.

    I probably am one of the best players at my school, but that's not saying much. FLCC isn't exactly Berklee.
