I just got the new Muse CD (I HIGHLY recommend it by the way - Black Holes and Revelations), and I heard violins on a few tracks. Are the violinists on rock recordings usually hired by the studio or are they part of the band?
I've had a lot of fun this past year playing with some of my friends' bands, doing the violin parts on Beatles and Dylan songs, and I even bought a bridge pickup. Does anyone (especially near LA) know how I could get into that line of work? I remember I contacted Linkin Park about doing something like this when I was 15 or so, but they never got back to me.
