In many ways I think being some kind of part time musician is the most ideal situation of all. 

I am a pianist who plays at bouzouki, guitar and violin.  The only drawbacks are I don't get to play and record as often as I would like. The nice thing is I don't need to play to eat.....that's a good thing too. I would probably starve.

I don't think you do this for recognition. At least I don't. In that case I think many would be sorely let down if they were in it for that. Sure I get the occasional compliment and it feels good. If I existed for compliments though I would have dried up long ago.

If you're a part timer, what are your experiences?
