Lucm you've gotten some really good suggestions.

How do you approach a musician?

With money, lots of money...

We're all starving you know and living in our parents basements.

Otherwise if you are near any music stores just go to them and ask around. Usually music stores are 10 to 1 guitarists to any other type of instrument. Also look for music teachers specializing in guitar including instructors at a local college. Many colleges have full recording studios in their music department.

In my neighborhood you can have your choice of guitar players on your porch in minutes, just order pizzas from all the competitors.

Sorry I could not let that opportunity for that joke go by.

Best To You!

You know how to make a bass player mad?

Refuse to pay him for the pizza.

Lots of good suggestions,here, Lucm. You've really nothing to lose if you do as Eddie suggests -- post the track and throw it open to suggestion or collaboration. Been done before.
Then, the obvious -- call your local recording studio. They come in all varieties. Rare is the one that does not have access to the range of studio musicians. Or, bring your own.

Main thing to remember is that they are not driving up and down your street looking for YOU. You need to go out and find them.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
