The look on their face was priceless, and they ran, and I mean ran like a bat out of hell.

Look up Steve Lukather on youtube. Theres also a good article in a past guitar world that had some good info on the session scene over the last 30 years. Most session players were awesome guitarists that could site read,play in multiple genres, and just all around versatile guitarists. Definitely not what it used to be ,as there are not as many gigs out there as there used to be. Everyone has pro tools now. But one of the newer guitarists out that has been a great session guitarist in recent years is John 5. Everything from country to pop to rock. Most guitarists today probably couldn't compete in the old session scene because you had to be versed in all genres, site read, as well as be able to interpret what was wanted for the gig as well. Most guitarists today,and I'm talking about most of us on here as well, are one trick ponies that will never be professional musicians no matter what happens. The amount of dedication required to have the skills to session gig is not possessed by most of us here.

Extremely talented. But its a dying art nowadays. Mostly you see session players now in Country acts, and pop music. That's live anyways, session players aren't really needed in the studio anymore.

Amazingly talented. Considering most of them went through years of schooling, and can play various instruments extremely well, I'd say nearly every session musician is more talented then your run-of-the-mill rock guitarist.

99% of session musicians are black and usually very good. If you dont believe me, look on youtube for major solo artists. All the bands black!

Why is this you ask me?

I dont know, but i'd like to know.

Extremely talented. They have to be able to play this stuff on their first few tries, sight-read, and have the necessary technique to pull off the song.

So yes, scarily talented.

Since I can't think of anything else to do with guitar in college, I've been thinking about being a session musician lately. That'd probably have to start off on the side though. It'd be cool to get hired to play for Miley Cyrus or something though, you'd get payed a lot to play a bunch of freaking easy stuff.
