Is going to open jam sessions at small clubs and bars a good way ro network/meet other musicians? Or should we focus on getting better in the studio?
Today’s excellent question comes from Nicholas: “My biggest question is about playing out in open jam situations or at smaller bars/clubs. Is this a good way to get your foot in the door and meet people in the industry or is it more important to work with backing/click tracks and be more studio focused? I’ve had opportunities to meet and play with professional musicians in both types of settings and I understand that it’s important to be able to do both, but my question is more from a networking perspective. Is doing one more important than the other?”
