Anyway, I'd like to become a musician and go to art school, but I don't know how far I could go knowing shit about composition. I really don't care about having low income and living in an apartment the rest of my life.
Anyone else in a similar situation?
Let me tell you the secret to composition
YOU HAVE TO WRITE
WRITE YOU STUPID MOTHERFUCKER
WRITE EVERY FUCKING DAY
Write every fucking idea that your stupid head can come up with
And record yourself playing that shit no matter how terrible it sounds
And keep writing and recording and NEVER STOP EVER
And if God or Allah or Buddha or whoever else wills it then one day IT WILL HAPPEN
But you have to start writing
This is true. I wrote a lot of fucking music before I started getting any good after like 3 years of trying
Also I write music, and have a vision and mostly fleshed out songs that I need to be played with a band. I sing and play guitar and I need a lead guitarist to my rhythm. If you want to play and are in the same area (East coast USA) then maybe we could rok it
MFW Jack White, Bob Dylan, Conor Oberst, and Isaac Brock all had pretty meh to awful voices on their first records. Man the fuck up and scream at the crowd. Chances are the sound guy will be shit anyways.
being a successful musician has nothing to do with school (although it helps), making it in the entertainment industry is by making connections and networking and having some luck.
I suggest you move to California or jew york and start kissing ass.
Another thing is you have to make yourself valuable, you have to make record companies think kids love you, and record companies love that cause kids have cash.
You got to get popular on the internets, capture the zeitgeist of the youth, wear cool clothes, have a cool image, have a fresh sound.
