you aren't going to play music for money..

it's a dream of everyone. Hop off cloud 9 before it goes into the stratosphere.

your best bet is to get a really good band and play gigs and stuff and hopefully meet someone who is in the biz and slowly work your way up to bigger venues.

if you plan on making it big tho, you wont. it just happens to a random select few
My Guitars:
Gibson Les Paul Studio
Epiphone AJ
Ibanez Strat Copy

Amps:
Orange Tiny Terror Head
Old beaten up Peavey cab
Marshall MG30DFX

You're not gonna get anywhere by yourself. You need to get into a band. And tehn the chances are still slim.

Post a demo in your profile, lots of top record execs hang out on this site...you should be famous soon.

If you really wish to do it, get a band, and don't think you will become rich. You can start to play gigs and maybe one day get a name on the scene you're playing on

a) spell check
b) don't expect to make it huge. local venues are a great place to start. but be in a good band first!
c) the thread stickied at the top of this forum for New Members is where you should repost this

no not really. this isnt an introduction, it's a question about the music industry. try guitar & bass basics or musician talk or something else related to guitar/musicians.
