You ever feel like there’s so much music out in the world that you’ll never be able to appreciate all of it or even hear what would be your favorite song or band but never discovered it?
Everytime I here a song that has impacted me in any way in the past I’m instantly inspired and reminded why I do this
Maybe this makes me sound like a pretentious asshole but I would love to be interviewed as a musician. Sure I may not be famous or have a storied career behind me, but I just have a lot of interesting things I’d like to share, like my influences, my thoughts on music today, my past, present and future projects…just sounds like fun to me.
I have the sudden urge of wanting to learn to play a pedal steel guitar. It’s much more feasible than that bassoon idea.
2 songs in 2 weeks.
Hadn’t done that shit since 2008.
I find that when I really immerse myself in a piece the classical guitar can actually be thoroughly enjoyable and peaceful…I might not be churning out jazz chord progressions or writing lyrics like I want to, but there’s something endearing about studying classical I guess…either that or it’s just because I’m playing Andrew York, lol. Maybe this coming school year won’t be so bad.
Why am I afraid to get a job and work? I don’t consider myself lazy; I practice guitar and do school work almost everyday, and I always have projects in mind to accomplish. I wouldn’t say I’m not motivated, as I have big plans for a good career and a good life, and I have always been afraid of entering the “work force”. When I was 15 I figured I’d have some menial job to make ends meet while I was in school by the time I was 17, and here I am at 22 years old with no work experience really. I’ve technically had two jobs; the first was like a cashier/sales assistant at a local music store. I only worked for a total of 10 days of the course of 2 months (only worked on Saturdays). I’m not sure why the owner even hired me but I never fully learned how to operate the cash register and always felt awkward with customers. My 2nd job a couple of years later was as a peer tutor at my community college. There were times where working with people was very difficult, but overall I really did enjoy that job; the problem is there’s not much career choices for tutoring remedial math to middle aged people who’ve gone back to school. Both these jobs are pretty atypical for your average high-school/college student, which is why I feel I have no work experience, and the thought of having a “real” job scares me to death. I just have this anxiety about having to go to work everyday and messing up, doing something stupid, saying the wrong things to people and having to interact with them constantly. I’m extremely introverted, and constant contact with people I don’t know drain me significantly, and yet any basic job seems to require this. I’m in my 5th of school now, with at least one more to go, partially because I’ve been trying to avoid work all this time. I’m a musician and music major, and landing something within my interests right after school would ease my fears significantly, and is the reason why I transferred to a University in the first place. But what if I have to settle for some non-music related job? What if my only option is customer service related work? The thought terrifies me to no end, and I’ve got to find ways to cope and options out there to help me avoid this.
