There’s a lot of musicians & bands out there that worry about critics & haters. Some bands & musicians would become so defensive when their music gets criticized by other music lovers or professional music critics. My advice is don’t worry about what other people think of your music. The attitude that you should have is always make music that you like. You don’t really need to play music for other people. Just make music that makes you happy. That always has been my attitude from day 1.
People always expect me to write music that would please everyone but it’s not gonna be always that. I try my best to make the best songs possible that everyone can enjoy but if there are times when people don’t care about my songs, I’m fine with that. I’ve always made the music for me. Will continue to make music for me and make music however I wanted. Not caring if my music offends people or not. Sometimes I do make songs that turn people off.
Pretty soon, I planning on making my own hard rock & metal music when I get an electric guitar and I will continue to have that attitude. Make whatever rock & metal songs that pleases me. Make songs however I wanted. Most of my listeners know me for my acoustic music but I want to make the change to hard rock & metal. I’ll probably turn my listeners off even more but that’s okay. I’ll just make music whatever pleases me.
That’s what music should be about. Making music that pleases you. If it happens to please other people? That’s fine. If it doesn’t? That’s fine too. I’m okay whether or not people like my music ’cause I do music for myself for the most part. Always did.
I want to play rock and metal guitar soon. Big riffs, headbanging rhythm, dark lyrics… all that stuff that metal fans would like. As far as metal vocals go, I’ve been experimenting with growls a lot and gonna try to make songs like that too. I want to rock and go heavy finally. I’ve been listening to a lot of heavy music lately and want to make that kind of music for myself.
I have been learning how to play hard rock & metal guitar lalely. I’ve been learning to shred too so I’m gonna experiment with shred solos as well. People don’t think I could make this kind of music but watch me. This is the kind of music I’ve always wanted to play and it’s the whole reason I picked up the guitar to begin with.
It’s why I’m planning to buy a new electric guitar soon. I’m gonna buy a good one. A solid body electric around the price range of $400 – $700. I’m not really picky with guitars like a lot of musicians are these days. I just buy whatever guitars that looks and sounds cool to me. Any guitar that fits my sound and style is what I’m looking for, I’ll probably buy. Doesn’t matter the brand. Whether a guitar is Ibanez, Washburn, Jackson, Gibson, Fender Strat, etc. I don’t give a shit. If it looks good and sounds good, it is probably for me.
I love buying guitars and more music gear when I can.
