Less guitars, more field recordings.

I have to ask, the whole electronic music thing, do you actually like all that shit or is it an ongoing joke ?, what music do you like ?

Dear Snazz: EDF > EDM

Other than that, I guess just grow your hair out, never wash or comb it. Wear only black band t-shirts, never wash those either. Do as many drugs as you can, and some that you can't. Stop using your amp's built in distortion and use a $50 pedal for all your tone. Never be in a band that has a bass player. Quit going out and working towards your success - it will come to you. The only thing that really matters is who can play the fastest and loudest.

since you asked so nicely

I mostly listen to future garagey things, the more chill side of (uk) dubstep and experimental electronic music (idm and stuff). I also like electroacoustic music and other experimental stuff in that realm.

Also Björk.

Occasionally a bit of pop punk or oceansize or something but it's rare these days.

Trying not to be insulted by this, but my hair is super clean and pretty and not metal at all.

Allow me to clear this up: my hairstyle choices are completely independent of my taste in music. I first decided I wanted long hair at the age of approximately 7-8 cos I wanted to look like a super saiyan. Now I keep my hair long cos I like how it looks (and cos I'm a super saiyan/norse deity) and there's really nothing more to it than that.

Make a record, just one. Then shoot yourself on the head. You'll be f****** famous.

I'd honestly fap to anything with a set of genitals as long as I find it aesthetically appealing.

Really don't understand why you own all dem guitars then.

Play with as many diverse musicians as you can. You may not want to play some of the stuff but you learn so much.
If Rock is a life-style, then Metal's an addiction

Practice to improvise, then improvise and then practice to improvise some more.

Don't be afraid to be an asshole. No matter what music it is, most people are not going to like it so you have to have thick enough skin to trust yourself and bandmates to give and take critism. Go ahead, ravage the bassist's self esteem, if he can't handle it, he can't handle it. But at the same time, you have to be able to take it yourself.

Fun tip for musicians: use instruments to make music
Another one: use microphones to amplify your voice

Always make sure your guitar is tuned lower than the other bands in your area. If that means you're tuning to Drop E, then you're not tuned low enough.

Edit:
Also, fire your bass player. You don't need that guy. He's a dead weight nowadays.

Another good tip is coming up with a name for your band. That's a good way to help people find you on the net!

Be modest about your music. Don't tell people you play guitar, drums, etc unless you're talking about music. ALWAYS be open to jam sessions/playing with others (if they're good, of course). And if you're a guitarist... don't "shred", play from the soul.
