The Studio Musician’s Handbook reveals:

  • How to become a studio musician?
  • Who hires you?
  • How much you get paid?
  • What kind of skills are required?
  • Proper session etiquette
  • How to get the most from a vocalist
  • What kind of gear you need?
  • The history of studio musicians (it’s longer and more varied than you think)
  • The best way to prepare for a session
  • The real “Studio Musician 101”

What happens during a big-time professional recording session can be easily applied to make even the most casual recording session successful. The Studio Musician's Handbook reveals the inner workings of a major Hollywood recording session, including a look at the players themselves.

Among the things you'll learn are how you become a studio musician, who hires you and how much you get paid, what kind of skills you need and what gear you must have, the proper session etiquette required to make a session run smoothly, and how to apply these skills in every type of recording session regardless if it’s in your home studio or Abbey Road.

Also included are individual session musician guides for guitar, bass, drums, vocals, keys, horns, and strings.

As a bonus, an accompanying DVD takes you inside an actual record date in a world-class studio with world-class players.

The Studio Musicians Handbook also includes interviews with well known session players like Leland Sklar, Ricky Lawson, Charlie Drayton, Rami Jaffee and more.
