What It Takes To Be a Professional Musician

I'm in the midst of preparations for the Nancy Wilson Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp. There are a lot of songs and material to revise and learn. It's often assumed that because I'm a "professional" musician, that I can just show up, I already know the music, and it's easy for me. Nope! There's a big difference between hearing a piece of music and knowing it! I put in the time, rehearse, prepare and anticipate the needs of each gig or situation. To me, being a professional means working hard - to make it look easy! 😝

    Thanks for sharing this Tony! I didn't know you when you wrote/ posted this, but I know this song very well and I'm so glad that you chose to preview your chart as Straight On has a terrific and very recognizable bass line intro. Through the years and with the revolving door of bass players that Heart has hired after Mark Andes left the band, some have made it quite funky in live shows and very much their own. I would have loved to hear you play it.
