When people criticize my own music, like when some folks say that I suck or have no talent, I think they need to be detailed and be said with class without such immature attacks. When I reviewed the two local bands posted a few posts down, I never personally attacked them once, just kindly gave my honest criticism, it may be negative criticism but at least I did it in a friendly way.
Mostly when people try to criticize my own music, they do it just to try and upset me or they’ll start to be more open about my music after I start criticizing other bands. It’s like a “you do this to me, I’ll do this back to you” kiddie type of thang. You don’t have to start bashing my music just to show me how it feels. You either like it or you don’t. I know my tunes aren’t for everyone but I still appreciate people listening even if they hate it or like it. It’s all good.
The truth is, people can send me all kinds of nasty and harsh critics toward my music all they want to. I am never upset or pissed off about it!!! It’s the truth! As a matter of fact, I am actually flattered that it gets talked about whether it’s bad or good feedback.
I have been playing shows in the Capital District for a little over a year, I played a good number of 35 shows in one year, not bad for an acousticc guy who had played almost every venue at a short time!
Why have I not been gigging much? I said before I’m on a hiatus. I’m working a full time day job that is kind of keeping me away from music but I still do play guitar and write when I come home from work at times. I’m soon going to be a college man this fall, and that will probably take me away from music also but going back to school will give me more time to write new songs though.
I write music for me. It’s something I love doing and it what makes me happy. Hopefully soon I’ll start writing new songs again so I can get a new demo album in the works. Then I’ll hopefully start playing a slew of gigs again.
Sure, I can be a little crazy and be a little negative or be a jerk at times, but so what? I am being myself and being who I am. Besides, who isn’t negative or a jerk at times? Everyone is once in a while, it is life. It’s just that nobody has the right to come on here and badily judge my personality. I have friends and supportive people around me and they aren’t going to agree with some of the nasty things some negative people say about me out there. I only take advice and trust the people that I know well, not from the people I don’t know well.
I barely ever use my blog to talk about myself much anymore but to go for something different for once other than entertainment news, I wanted to say all this to get it off my chest.
