Good Traits for The Sims 3's Music Career Track

Artistic
Artistic will help with either branch in the music career track, through its boost to the guitar skill's learning rate.

Virtuoso
The virtuoso trait will make your Sim better at guitar overall, and should boost performance in either of the career track's branches.

Schmoozer
Since either branch requires relationships with your bandmates, the Schmoozer trait can come in handy to befriend them while your Sim is on the job. Good for rock stars or composers.

Genius
If you're going the composer route, consider taking this trait to make logic easier to learn. It's useless for rock stars, however. Keep in mind that your composer could be blindsided by the logic requirements that suddenly appear as a performance metric at level 8. It might be better to start raising this earlier, rather than later if you're going with that branch.
