    I've completed 11 songs and planning to record a demo. I'm not the best guitar player so I called a person to play for me by the hour. I told him we need to get together and go over before going to the studio. He mentioned co-writing and wanted to record at a friends studio. I explained I only needed a player for some rhythm. He mentioned being the producer of my songs. Am I being taken for a ride?

    I could tell you, but then I'd be your lawyer!

    Decide your role. Are you the producer? If the songs are done why would you need a co-writer? The musician you hire should be a mercenary who does a great job following your instructions in the most timely way that he/she can.

    As a (former) session player sometimes the producer tanked what I thought was my best stuff in favor of things I thought really sucked. But it's his dime and his time.

    Look for another player unless you are looking for a collaborator.
