  • Studio Session Musicians: $50 to $300 per song (the lower end usually covers one part by an experienced session musician but who does not necessarily qualify as a “name” player, guitar by a “name’ player encompassing several parts (acoustic, electric, etc.) may land at the higher end of that scale.
