Are there any Pit Monkeys out there that use guitar as they're sole, or even main course of income? Just wondering really. eg. gigging, giving lessons, working in a guitar or pawn shop.

I did once. From october 06 to july 07.

Had to move so I had to leave both the bands I was in. That sucked.

All I know is, if I were a guitarist for my career, i would be practicing right now. That goes for most of the people on this forum.

So my prediction; no.

You need to practice to get the career, if you had a chance of getting one.

I give lessons, it pays pretty well for a teenager. 120-130 dollars for 5 hours of work isn't bad.

I play gigs, but never gotten paid to play yet. And I have professional musicians wanting me to do studio work with them, so that's something to look forward to.

No, although my cousin is in a legit, signed band. I've seen them mentioned on here once or twice.

I've been doing almost nothing but researching how to build guitars for the past few days. I definitely intend to pursue building guitars in the future, when the equipment permits.

Also, I figured I'd keep it in this thread, at what point is one considered a "professional guitarist". I'm just curious as to what people do to be considered that.

TS, whenever I see your username, I misread it as "isuckhardcocks."

Just had to get that out there.
