>played drums since 9 years old
>started guitar at 16 when my parents could afford it
>played both every day for hours every single day
>start producing music and change genres
>I'm the only person in my field including famous ones with actual instrumental practice
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?
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
>I think I should of at least done enough to make 65k
Do you expect money to just be thrown at you because you do something?
"Do what you love and the money will come" is a lie, friend.
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.
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
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.
>clearly writes shitty, generic beats
>just like every other entry level tier 'producer' with a laptop and some shitty gear
>actually thinks he should be paid by the literally zero people who give a fuck about his tunes
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.
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
>All of the producers I love I watch make beats live and they make generic sounding bull shit they all sample anyway
Does anyone watch you do stuff live? Do you let anyone watch you?
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.
is this a joke? you actually make 'type' beats. at least make something originial
nigga i got a cd of that shit in a cereal box when i was 10. use ableton
and i just realised the whole song is ONE loop. are you memeing me?
>expecting to make a living from music
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?
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
>protecting this hard!
How BTFO are you that you wrote paragraphs of made up bullshit.
You're a pleb, you're entry level as fuck, and you have no fucking idea about electronic music.
No I'm not showing you fags my truest potential I was just giving you a taste for a quick option it was meant for a 30 second listen and I just started producing I'm learning to incorporate everything I've learned into keyboard software excuse fucking me
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
young thug is trap you idiot. and come on, swag has been dead since 2013. heres some sick real trap for you
>this much damage control!
You're so fucking embarrassing it's actually making me cringe
Go and do some research, learn your history, stop being an arrogant faggot, and stop posting shit beats.
I'm in a fuxking small town nothing I do will work
Dude you act like I'm trying to be sonny digital or south side I just want to be a small guy sitting in a studio adjusting knobs and sounds for 50k a year I don't think I'm asking a lot
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
This is exactly what I mean succes is either an act of God or coincidence whatever your beliefs
Either way it only happens in cities unless you are lex Luger good which no one is besides him
>As if a bunch of white boy anti swag virgins
>no-one understands my music
This attitude is going to kill any chance you have at making money and being famous. Which, as you've stated, are your only goals.
Well dude holy fuck I'm not expecting waka to email me asking for beats and a studio session I just want to be one of the tech guys or the guy who makes small adjustment to the songs or just programs a single instrument I don't want fame and success just enough for an average living
If the people here think you're Better than me you're not because they have the opposite taste of 80 percent of the population because they tried so hard to be edgy and different they programmed their brains to only appreciate valueless shit
OK, man, I'll just get out of your way. With all that raw talent you clearly have I'm sure success is just around the corner. I'm sure you won't be posting bitter, self-congratulatory threads like this next month, let alone next year, right?
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.
Go work at a McDonald's where you fucking belong.
No you aren't simply because I can tell you don't have the right for beat making
At best you make those generic jungle beats or some r and b shit but you'll never make that hot trap shit EVER
Ok first off by using that picture and synth setting I can tell your autistic
No it's shit it is fuxking shit only people with poor taste will like it so yeah these people will revere it
Idk that sounds like fuxking shit sounds like something my grandma would take a bubble bath too
Whoever made that is an eternal virgin
The drums aren't super or anything in my song but they aren't that bad do you fags even have a subwoofer hooked up to that beat?
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
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.
We should all collab and shit, making songs about being lonely. Trap beats guy has some skill but lacks creativity. Here's muh music no one gives a shit since its about feeling like a robot.
>I learned how to play drums
>I learned how to play guitar
>but I want to get famous through making shitty EDM aka the most over saturated genre and hardest to get a name in
>I also don't shill my shit like the world is going to end how come no one listens to me
Electric guitar is such a fucking meme instrument. You just alternate between 2-3 chords and women line up to suck your dick, meanwhile I am a classical musician playing cello and it's fucking hard and nobody gives a shit like they do for electric guitar.
Being a robot artist is so fucking hard, you really need to prove yourself over and over to just get one or two gigs. Shitheads with friends in the industry just have to ask and barely play anything.
Here is some throwaway shit from someone who's actually doing it professionally.
This is pretty good
robot rap album when?
Also, any tips for beat making? I've been making them with factory plugins, will purchasing better sounds up the production or do I need work on mixing?
That's the greatest thing about teaching kids, their rich parents don't expect any real progress so you can just teach them useless shit, I did that for a while when I was teaching violin, cause god knows those fucken kids are too shit headed to learn anything
>the only one in my field with any actual instrumental practice
I've been playing for eight days.
Am I better than OP?
Here' some unfinished shit.
Post something you've done first.
What happens If you get students who want to learn?
And does age matter? I've always wanted to learn an instrument and make my own compositions but we couldn't afford to buy one (violin).
Well then I really actually try, I'll show them YouTube videos and play through it with them, I'm not bad, just I don't have technical experience. No, it really doesn't matter about age so much as long as you are serious about it, just look at any guitar forum, half the members are 80 year old dudes who started learning a month ago, and they're pretty decent
Shit, that was the same link, I meant this.
>OP expects a music career to just magically happen
>OP posts his 'best' song
>it's complete garbage, devoid of talent, and even of skill
>everyone agrees without exception
>OP blames everyone else and starts in with the racism
It feels good knowing that you will never succeed in the music industry OP, or likely at anything in life, given the fact that you are a delusional moron with a terrible attitude.
You're so bad that people would pay you NOT to play. What in the fucking world makes you think you're worth 50k/year? You're the most cringe-worthy fuck I've seen here in a while.
> OP is a faggot
> i play a meme guitar and drums
> lifes not fair daddy made me suck his cock for a meme guitar
> i wanna be famous so i can suck some jewish cock
now with a computer you can fuckin code a guitar and drums sounds
Damn, this is some embarrassing shit for OP, only he's too much of a mental infant to see how badly he's been humiliated (mostly his own doing).
Did anyone save this autistic nigger's shitty rap beats? I want to laugh
>fucking up someone I love just by simply being me
how old are you?
can't you just start now and do something while you can?
just do it bro
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.
I like this better than OP tbqhfamipus
It has actual soul
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
>pick up my dads old guitar at age 13
>parents try to get me to take it seriously
>never do, despite playing it off and on since then
>regret wasting so much time that could have been spent practicing
>still better than 95% of guitar players because the guitarist community is a motherfucking shitshow
>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 wants to get paid for his music
>gets asked to post it so people can judge if it's worth shit
>op posts some ultra generic shit
>gets called out on it
>get defensive and says how it doesn't really count since was just some quick shit without much effort
>gets asked to post something actually good then
>doesnt post anything, just more excuses about how he has yet to incorpate everything he's learned into a song and shit
>my fucking face when OP has never produced a song he could call finished or truly done with effort yet expects to be paid for his soulless garbage
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.
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.
