Pete Thorn is maybe best known to this audience as a YouTube gear demo guy, but his living is made as a sideman to the stars. Having played guitar for such artists as Chris Cornell, Don Henley, Alicia Keys, and way more, he’s a pretty good authority on how to land the gig. In this video he gives his 5 most important tips for getting a job backing up high-profile artists, and if this is something you want to do, I HIGHLY recommend you take them very seriously. Anyone looking to join a band should consider these points as gospel.
