On the 1-100 scale of skill/professional competence you're operating in the 90-100 range and I'm probably operating in the 10-30 range but those concepts apply across the board and are really important IME/IMO.
that's a great article - and while to some of us it is "no-brainer" type of stuff, i think it's all very informative and well written.
it cannot be said enough that musical skill is only HALF the gig -- the other half is whether people wanna be around you or not!
you're only onstage for a couple of hours....what about the other 22 hours of the day? are you someone that people like to hang with, go to dinner with, talk to, and be around?
being well prepared and ready for ANYTHING is important -- always having spares for all your gear - always being in TUNE - always being on TIME - and always knowing the material and not STEPPING on it when you don't know it as well as you should
nice work Pete!
the guys i know that have done big time tours as sidemen... are some of the nicest people i've met in my guitar travels... i guess that's part of the reason they keep getting calls...
