Why wasn't I made famous? Fuck it I don't even want that. Why can't I get big enough to afford a 2 story house with a corvette and a motorcycle? Why couldn't I have done anything with it?

>Why wasn't I made famous?

Because your music isn't good or you didn't make people aware of it. Who do you think was meant to make you famous? As if it was just going to 'happen'. What the fuck sort of question is this you retard?
>>
>>26056636
Idk my beats aren't AMAZING but I think I should of at least done enough to make 65k

I don't want to be some millionaire avicii or diplo (okay yes I do) but I'd be happy with just being able to earn a middle class living

I think the reason is being born in a rural area

I'm normally too embarrassed to post my shit but it's late I'll do it if you guys act interested
>>

Do you expect money to just be thrown at you because you do something?

It's not enough that you like your music, that you play instruments or that you are the only one who plays instruments.
People have to like your music. If they don't they won't care how technically amazing it is.
>>
>>26057375
No but in an industry where 8 figures are made I don't see why I can't make a small amount of money when I spent my life doing it when you acne nerd virgin fucks make that by studying computers for 5 years

>>26057326
You sound like a fucking faggot. No one's going to pay you 65k to make little diddles on FL studio.
>>
>>26057326
There's your problem right there, by not posting your material you've totally limited your exposure to family and friends (if you've got any).

Doesn't matter if you're the next Mozart, if people don't hear it then it doesn't matter. Stop faffing about and prime up a SoundCloud or something.

Who the fuck do you think is going to pay you? The only way you could maybe make money is if you're constantly doing live shows and people love your music.

You want to be paid for your mediocrity

Post your SoundCloud, bitch.
You got like 8(?) people here wanting to take a listen, small growth is growth.

Hell, if I like your music I'll recommend you to my online acquaintances.
>>
>>26057424
Where do you think the money will come from?

Someone has to pay you. You won't just get a weekly stipend from the government for music-making duty.
>>
>>26057484
All of the producers I love I watch make beats live and they make generic sounding bull shit they all sample anyway

Even with 808 mafia it's 8 people making the beat it's one person making the melody and one person making the drums and one person mixing etc none of them are that amazing

What kind of music do you make ? I've been making music too for about 6-7 years, but haven't really uploaded any of my best work anywhere, idk I guess I'm too afraid of criticism or something. Though, a remix I made a year ago got 130k+ plays, before I hid it (it sucked anyway).
I'm thinking of making an album or ep with the best shit I've come up with, but have no clue how to make people listen to it and there are too many punk/rock/indie bands anyway, so I don't think anybody would want to hear my shit.

You either make it big or love in squalor, everyone knows this. Also, stop being a faggot and start a business. Start a recording studio or teach drums/guitar.

But I'm all seriousness you should have invested in a ski that actually makes money, or did you actually assume you could make it big?
>>
>>26057590
Now I see the problem you guys are all retards that want shitty music

You don't have the proper taste to enjoy today's music

I.E. Virgin fuck weirdos with no friends and watch anime and listen to shitty music the whole world laughs at

I bet not one of you fags in this thread make music and if you do it's some gay white people guitar music theory shit

I don't want to upload some shit I spent hours on for a bunch of cock suckers to download it for free plus one of the kicks is fucked up in the song because I fucked up it's just not even something I posted seriously

play any part of the song and it sounds the exact same. you literally repeated one loop for the whole song

why didn't you post your lex luger beat? its way better

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zF7KeXvv6u0
>>
>>26057679

Uh. In all honesty, you can't really expect people to pay for music if an artist they don't know with songs that they never heard.
Post one of the things you actually worked hours on, then if people like it they might buy it. You have to get out there and known somehow, and that's not really possible only people who know you already will listen to your music.

That's a catch 22 :D

I'm one of the white virgin NEETs you seem to hate so much, and I am 10000x better than you at music and beatmaking. The beat you posted is one of the worst I've ever heard, seriously.

Drums should have a bit of variety in the middle of the song (0.32) other then that it sounds pretty chill

If you can't tell why your beat is shit, you should give up right now and pursue something else.

yes I do get paid to piano. I also teach.

Your charm reflects your music perfectly. I wonder why people don't throw their money at your feet like you want them to?

Well that beat isn't "shit" it's not my best work or anything it was just a quick song I made for fun I have a variety of different types of shit

That song honestly isn't that bad I like the 808s if it had a second melody and little bit of a switch up I think it'd be aight

There's another beat on that profile and it's just another generic trap beat but it has more to it

Honestly that first best can't be that much shit to get 1k views with 0 promotion that's the first time I checked on it since I posted it

I made that shit like 6 months into producing anyway it could be better but the only thing it's missing is more snares and a different mix

Ouch.
This nigger just destroyed a nigger.
Well done, my nigga.

You guys just have shit taste you can't like something cool when all you care about is your 1950s sounding shit
>>
>>26058056
they didnt search that because they wanted to hear your specific beat. they were searching for a good soulja boy type beat and yours happened to come up. if you named it anything else you would have under 50 views
>>
From what I know you're trying to enter an industry that is very competitive with no connections to any scenes or music studios.

A lot of the homegrown bedroom projects musicians were lucky as fuck and just made their music for the heck of it until they got popular. I don't think they should have expected to be paid under any circumstance because there are way more failure than success stories.

In all honesty (I was prepared to give him a fair listen), this is really bad. Besides the fact that the individual sounds are just shit, they are clunkily put together and don't even match the beat.

To make it big you have to be the one whos singing OP, combine your guitar skills with training your voice for a long time, and maybe at some point you will sound like Sam Smith and get millions of views on youtube
If you are good, they will even write the songs for you, you just have to deliver
Read through this and get an idea, you just made me debunk this from my memory from years ago so you better make the fucking time to read this article http://www.cracked.com/personal-experiences-1288-7-things-record-deal-teaches-you-about-music-industry.html
Good luck, don't give up on your dreams, start singing with guitar, make a cover of a popular song (recent is good) and post it on youtube, bigger chances of getting noticed than that trap shit or whatever

>Why ain't I popular?
Pop music has little to do with compositional or instrumental skill.
Pop music is 99% image.
It's quite degenerate and anti-intellectual.

OP, your music was complete shit. I made garbage like that 1 year ago when I started. I hate rap beats, they're all repetitive as shit and similar sounding.

I've got labels looking at me all because of this shit i make. I know I can do better, but it works

>making music with the goal of money and fame
Yeah see? You're making music for the wrong reasons and it shows. Your music sounds uninspired and uncreative for a reason. Besides, it's not about how much effort you put in. I've been practicing in my room for 2-3 years now, hours a day or more. I'm still not good. I know how depressing that can be sometimes, but you need to judge your music by how it sounds, not how much of your soul you poured into it. You can really put your all into it and it still sound objectively bad, or mediocre at best. And there's lots of absolutely amazing musicians out there who will never be discovered, and they're actually pushing their shit out there. Outside of luck or connections or both, it's a tough goal. Keep improving, and keep making music if it's what you want to do. But if someone told you you would never make a dime from your music, that you would never receive any recognition for it, would you still want to? If your answer is no, then maybe you're doing it for the wrong reason.

>still better than 95% of guitar players because the guitarist community is a motherfucking shitshow
Maybe true, but still; the skill difference between the 96% and 97% is probably bigger than the difference between 0% and 95%. And so on. There is an entire vast universe of skill in that last 5%.

OP should try to make intentionally bad music.
It may just wrap right around and become good since his normal shit is so terrible.

Yeah this is actually quality

>>26060204
Although he's got an awful attitude i can empathize with him. When you sink so much of your soul and time into music, just to come up with something mediocre, it's pretty painful. It's easy to come up with excuses like
>oh well i'm not playing at 100%
>this guitar isn't as good
>i'm slightly out of tune
>I'm just having a bad day today but normally I sound good
the list goes on. I spent my years of highschool shut in my room playing music. I didn't have friends, I didn't have any social life or any skills, so music was the one thing I used to validate my existence.

It's tough to record yourself and realize you aren't all that good after pouring your heart, soul, and endless amounts of hours and days and weeks and months and years into something, especially if that's the one thing you've got to justify your existence.

I think OP should learn from this. Instead of getting all defensive, he should just keep working on making better music.

>>26060441
In all seriousness, how do robots have this problem? We're all loser nerds who probably spend the majority of our childhood playing video games, yet chances are we're at best mediocre in the grand world of online video game competition.

We all should have accepted our mediocrity by now.

imo it's not very good but I don't know what to do to improve on it

could you give me some pointers?
>>
>>26057870
Honestly, it's not horrible, but the mixing has been done poorly and the sounds are generic.

This kind of beat's been done thousands of times before.
