Or are you all critics because you can't do or teach?

I've always wondered.

Define "Actual Musician"

I mean have you seen the Soundcloud and Bandcamp threads?

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

>>62052104

more than a lot of people can say, anon
>>
>>62052118
I'm not very smart
>>
>>62051841
Just graduated with a bfa in jazz performance been on a multiple tours and am putting out a record very soon. I peep mu every now and again
>>
>>62052121
lol ok so only people who make music have the right to have an opinion?
It's not because you can pluck some strings that your opinion is worthy, fellow plebby
>>
>>62052121
Yeah there are a lot of musicians by that definition then. Check out the bandcamp and soundcloud threads. That's what those threads are dedicated to.
>>
>>62052152

fucking awesome

in your opinion is jazz dying off in the modern age or is it just underappreciated?
>>
>>62052178

>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
>>
Starting my composing degree soon

Play multiple instruments, at different skill levels

Why OP is this one of those "i'm better than everyone else" threads
>>
>>62052192
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.
>>
>>62052316
i'm just interested, has nothing to do with better or worse than anything

hell, music is as subjective as art gets, hard to even use those terms seriously
>>
>>62052241
You're right
>>
>>62052178
if you don't make music I have literally no respect for your opinion on any kind of composition tbqh

I used to be a guitar teacher.

I hate music.

What about their original compositions, though?

>>62051841
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

Musician here. My band supported a critically acclaimed, pitchfork darling band last night. Guess who
>>
>>62052537
Ill check them out, however correct me if im wrong the got their name playing dilla shit and from what ive heard from them their musicianship is sub par at best.
>>
i play drums, so no
>>
does singing count

also tell me what you instrumentalists really think of vocalists
>>
>>62052688
>badbadnotgood
>subpar musicianship

Why do people love to hate on these kids? I struggle to think of a more talented band for their age. Jealousy me thinks
>>
>>62052654
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.
>>
>>62052688
>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.
>>
>>62052748
their drummer is insanely good
>>
>>62052714
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.
>>
>>62052714
Def not jealousy because me and my boys were doing that shit in high school for fun
>>
>>62052890

>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
>>
>>62052915
Did you ever record anything? Would love to hear it

Anyone can play guitar. All my bands fall apart. I just browse here.

No but /mu/ has many "producers"
>>
>>62053107
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
>>
>>62053148
True, Glasper is actually the shit

But he's probably 20 years older than the dudes in BBNG
>>
>>62053227
Hes 30 something
>>
>>62053201
i don't get the quotation marks here

it's either composer producer or producer "producer"
>>
>>62053227
And his first (and best imo) he made when he was still in college.
>>
>>62051841
yup. toured internationally and sold around 120k albums in a band. not post which as you guys would tear us apart....and for good reason...but yes, real musician.
>>
>>62053316
Were you in Lostprophets?
>>
>>62053316
Were you on a major label?

Any advice for aspiring musicians?
>>
>>62053316
cool shit man, i know a few solo acts and bands that have toured but they never hit that level of sales
>>
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?
>>
>>62053449
take that shit to /prod/
>>
>>62053467
I would but there's no /prod/ unless this thread is trying to be sneaky.
>>
>>62053509
alright i'll give you a short answer

Yes you can make a track using one software synth. You just have to learn how to use it and explore it's capabilities.
>>
>>62052512
Objectively, yes. Futurama >>> The Simpsons.
>>
>>62053539
Thanks, friend, really appreciate it.
>>
>>62051968
Futurama sucks
>>
>>62053449

you can make a track with a pair of spoons and a tape recorder
>>
>>62053591
Of course, but it would not get me trillion dollars per day :^)
>>
>>62052121
I make shitty dance music but I suck

Im trying to get good at theory at the moment with shit like chord progressions

nigger don't even start with me, spooncore is coming back in a mean way

nothing else would either

>>62053660
It's going to crash and burn like forkcore. Sporkwave is THE music of future.

>>62053674
I see you have little faith in Zimbabwean music production.
>>
>>62053316
im 22 and really good but i hate every musician i've ever met. a big label wants to sign me, but i sorta just want to get my masters and move on w life

advise pl0x
>>
>>62053778
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?
>>
I play drums in multiple bands but I don't feel superior to people that don't that post here. You don't need to know an instrument to appriciate music!
>>
I played violin for 7 years and piano on and off since 08. I'm decent at piano, although I haven't learned a song in a while. i should get back to that.
>>
keep on keeping on, anon

>critics because you can't do or teach

critiquing should be close to teaching if you do it correctly

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

>>
>>62054262
really?

huh, wow
>>
>>62054272
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
>>
This thread is surprisingly comfy.
>>
>>62054079
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.
>>
>>62051841
Bass/ drum fag here
>>
>>62053823
99% of music is shit. 99% of musicians make art that should be immediately discarded, but due to class, looks, or luck, they continue on.

i generally get along well w other ppl.
>>
>>62054355
tell me you listen to victor wooten
>>
>>62054324
Hate that. Lucky my band mates and I are all pretty shy and easy goin people. I fear we may be boring once we get on stage. It goes both ways I guess
>>
>>62054331
You reminded me about that comment under OPN - Problem Areas vid:
>if i made this song and put it on soundcloud no one would like it
>>
>>62054399
99% of music is shit. dubs confirms

It was all a waste. Music was a mistake. It's time to stop wasting our time listening to music and move on with our lives.
>>
>>62054415
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

started imagining some double-kick/snare rolls and sporadic power chords to back it up

>>62053142
not the same guy but this video has always been a favorite of mine.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6_Bdflm7YHo

its an older one though but lets be honest, most people cannot play instruments this well.
>>
>>62054564
yeah totally, CHON-eqsue math drums very synchronized with the 16th notes. I dig it.
>>
>>62054296
yeah he has confirmed it and he did that ARG here during NLDW
>>
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.
>>
>>62054474
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!!!
>>
>>62054766
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
