Tips & Resources for Musicians

My Session Kit

I keep a session kit that accompanies me to every gig and session. It contains items that I have learned over time are overlooked by the folks arranging the session or gig. These are the items I recommend.

  • Music Stand - I don't like laying my charts on a chair or coffee table and trying to play from them.
  • Guitar Stand - you will need to take a break
  • Music light
  • Long clips - keeps charts from moving with the breeze
  • Instrument cables
  • Mic cable
  • SM-58 mic - "Oh, didn't I tell you we needed to record a vocal track?"
  • DI box
  • Guitar strap
  • Capo
  • Metronome
  • Tuner
  • Digital recorder - I use a Zoom Hn4
  • Tripod
  • Extra batteries
  • Pencil and eraser
  • Music notes and paper
