Are there any actual musicians on /mu/?
Or are you all critics because you can't do or teach?
I've always wondered.
I made three shitty edm albums back in highschool, does that count?
i honestly rarely come to /mu/ and when i do it's acrid criticism and elitism about taste and opinion with the occasional comfy thread
by "actual musician" i mean anybody that has the balls to even attempt to create something, skill level is irrelevant, the important thing is getting to work
more than a lot of people can say, anon
>It's not because you can pluck some strings that your opinion is worthy, fellow plebby
you're not wrong, taste is taste
i just can't talk about music with pure consumers in the same way that i can talk about it with people that compose, play or perform
Both, Jazz is hugely underappreciated, however at the same time its plageud by shitty promotion and the ppl who refuse to do anything new. And lastly a bunch of faggots like badbad not good who make a career out of cultural appropriation. Not saying white ppl just faggots like bad bad not good who happen to be white.
I gig on a weekly basis, have released an album and currently very far into my 2nd. I studied guitar with one of the best in my country for 4 years and I've been playing for 8 years. So I guess you could call me an actual musician
Of course I am, but desu, /mu/ and most of 4chan is a good meme machine, but not so much a great place to have a good discussion, simply because of its imageboard structure and its users obv.
It's called wordfilters. Yo ratchet be showin, familia
I play a lot of jazz and blues when I'm by myself or jamming with my friends but my current band is some sort of melodic post-punk I guess
Vai is alright, I used to listen to and try to play along to his stuff a lot when starting out. There are some really nice gems from him (like Tender Surrender, which is one of my favourite songs ever) but lots of uninteresting wankery too.
>however correct me if im wrong the got their name playing dilla shit
Well, not just Dilla. But yeah, mostly hip-hop covers.
>and from what ive heard from them their musicianship is sub par at best.
Yeah, I felt that way with their stuff from 2011-12, but they've picked it up in the past few years.
Bro I knew black kids playing classical music and producing records that were dope when they were theyre age and now they are just getting play years later. Badbadnotgood was some white kids playing hip hop and so used that as an angle. If you some black kids playing punk or metal i bet they will get mad plsy not because of their skill but because of their skin color. I mean everybody gets theirs tho, guy i knew that i referenced earlier produces for kehlani now so meh.
>If you some black kids playing punk or metal i bet they will get mad plsy not because of their skill but because of their skin color
the bad brains didn't get popular because they were black, they got popular because they were fucking lunatics and they blew the doors off any place they played
race can be used as a gimmick but some people just want to play what they want to play
they never got plays because they were hardcore punk with a side of reggae, but my god did they ever get bookings and respect
also they would have been a big deal if H.R. hadn't been opposed to becoming a corporate gig
Since there are some producers in this thread can someone give me a quick answer?
Is it possible to make a track using only some software synth like Diva? Is it used to create "sounds" from scratch or do you have to use samples?
Either swallow your pride and make money or get your masters and........ what?
You can hate your co-workers all you want as long as you keep it professional, but the real question is why do you apparently hate every musician you ever met?
if we had an answer to that do you think we would be here
the guys from tera melos, the guitarist from bvb (who hates his band's music but loves the bitches), dead mau 5 and that one loser from DIIV i know for a fact lurk and/or post here or did within the past two years
make of that what you will
haha just goes to show you that you can't peg personalities and band roles together
i'm really soft-spoken, shy and reserved most of the time but when i hit the mic i scream my fucking guts out like a banshee and howl at the moon
at least the drummer keeps his shit together onstage, but his personal life is a goddamn soap opera and it bleeds over into the band dynamic sometimes
The more people can relate to your art the more they are gonna like it. People tend to idolize the artist and make no distinction between skills and charisma because of their lack of music theory.
I'm not saying a band with a great aesthetic is shitty though.I think a great band should have both a good image and the skills the pull off their ideas.
Also it depends on the era we live in. For example hip hop is trendy because of racial issues that are going on right now. It's relevant of our time.
in my experience the most bombastic personalities make for great stage presence but poor band dynamics
sometimes you can hook up with the perfect storm but usually you have to make concessions and accept the scenario for what it is
not the same guy but this video has always been a favorite of mine.
its an older one though but lets be honest, most people cannot play instruments this well.
should do a strawpoll. im not a musician but most people who arent wont bother posting.
i also dont call peoples taste shit though just because they like something different. i don't feel like i have that power.
Yeah we will have to make due. Finding like minded, dedicated musicians is hard enough. I would take a lead guitar now, even if he couldn't face the crowd when he played, as long as the man could JAM!!!
hell, look at slash; the guy can't actually take a hard look at the audience when he's on stage, even after all these years it freaks him out
the hat is like armor for him in that it helps block the crowd out and lets him focus on shredding
skill is more important than presence but that doesn't make presence unimportant
Played with county big band since I was 13 on Baritone, 19 and playing in a quintet on tenor. Instruments in list of proficiency are as follows
