Some are world class.
Many years ago, I took piano lessons (they failed) from a guy who described how he used to work on weekends. He was a "house" musician for a "club" that featured a variety of performers, mostly vocalists, performing consecutively all hours of Friday and Saturday nights. Most of them he had never seen or heard of. A normal occurrence was when they would be on a break and someone would thrust some sheet music into his hands and say, "This is for the next singer." He would have to play that music flawlessly, at sight, in public. And he did.
That was impressive as hell to me.
Absolutely. Session musicians need to have not only a knowledge, but a command of a wide variety of styles and patterns. They also can't be divas or losers, because unlike a regular band member, they can be replaced at the snap of a finger.
The unsung heroes of the music industry.
These guys would be brought in to 'pad out' performers such as The Beatles and The Stones.
Ringo, I heard, was a lousy drummer.

I'll be playing out again tonight. I'm admittedly old & ugly, but can still keep a crowd moving ,given the right material & players. We have had a number of stand in's, one sax player stood up with us for hours,pretty much hit all the turn arounds and stops. And yeah, that's impressive.
I'm looking for the name of the lead guitarist in this cover. And anything else he's done. Anyone know?
I like his restrained style.
As long as you have fun. What style of music?
Maybe sheet music. But just as likely lead sheets. Hard to say. But either way, yes indeed, impressive.
