I find this thread quite amusing as well. That's why I keep coming back.
You can't fire someone up without throwin a little gas on 'em
In the short time that I have been playing in here, I HAVE learned why so many bands split up due to "Artistic Differences
" A.K.A Clash of the Egos.
Yes, practice and perseverence, builds skill. Hundreds of hours practicing takes alot of dedication. I agree 100%.
This is what I'm stuck on though. How can you practice something that hasn't yet been created? How does "Theory" apply to something that doesn't yet exist??
I am interested in how everyone elses mind works now.. Please enlighten this "Space Witch" if you don't mind. For example:
You write a song that is so moving that it evokes an emotional response just by reading it. Now, how do you all come up with an intrumental piece that will be just as moving? It has to intertwine perfectly with the lyrics and convey the same emotion.
How would y'all do that?
Where does this music come from?
Do NOT say a BOOK....LOL!
Every single musician or writer has a creative process that is uniquely their own.
There are structural rules that apply to every art form (theory), but aside from that, the possibilities are endless. Otherwise, everthing would just be a clone.
What works for one, might not work for another. After a while, what has been working for someone for so long, doesn't work anymore. It happens, it is inevitable.
Why are so many so dead set against trying a new method? Stagnation is definately not going to work... Change is a good thing, it is an opportunity to learn and expand your knowledge.
Adapt or Die, there really are no other choices. If you listen to ANY musician or band that has been around for at least 5 years (or more) You can hear a slight difference in their music with every Record/CD they release. With time they learn different techniques, and EVOLVE. Granted there are a few that totally miss the mark an DEVOLVE, but then again, Evolution is all about Survival of the fittest.Ganoosh
I apologize for accusing you of smoking pot. You do look stoned off your ass though.
You are a very angry boy, I do not know why you feel the need to take your anger out on other people. Being nice works a HELL of alot better, than showing your ass.
Re-read some of your posts, EVERY one of them has some sort of backhanded insult to someone in it. The way you come across in your posts has the air of arrogance and self righteous superiority that you have bestowed upon yourself.
Perhaps you are insecure, and feel safety hidden behind the blue light of your computer screen. BUT....
If you spoke to people like that, out in the real world, especially where I'm from, you'd be drug out the holler, then git your ass whooped. After that I can't say what they'd do, the thought scares me. All I can say is, have you ever seen Deliverance?
You can "assume/hope" that I am not really a Witch all you want, it won't change the fact that it is true..
Also, you were off by a LOOOOONG way on a few other things.
So let me enlighten you some more... "Mr. Grown-up" is my ol man, I am MRS. Grown-up.
Also, how exactly are you guaging maturity and intelligence?
By trying to find holes in something that was way above your intelligence level and I specifically mentioned so. It was way too complex to explain in a post. Did you miss the part where I told him to email me if he had any questions?
You must have just scrolled over the part where he said that it helped him too, so where exactly was the harm done? By thinking differently than you, Oh Great One ??
You are not even CLOSE to my level of intelligence boy genius.
STOP BEING SUCH A DICK!! Maybe you NEED to smoke a joint or two, you are way too uptight and pissed off for a child....
