Why is popular music so trash? I know it's always been this way, but isn't there any way to fix it?

Yes and it takes literally 1 minutes to figure that out if you care. Are there really /mu/tants who don't know this?
East Asians also have higher intelligence and stronger family structure than Europeans and massively outnumber jews but are not overrepresented 1000x in all institutions of power in the western world. Your self serving "jews are just tho thmaaart" excuses are retarded and no one falls for them.
thotcore is on the rise but will wane just as every fad before it
It's gotten more and more obnoxious over time but really "I'm a fucking drunk slut bitch and I can do whatever I want and no one can criticize me for it!!! YEAHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!" has been the basic subject matter of all female pop music for almost 30 years now. It's not a fad at this point. The record industry is in its end game. They identified the most profitable model and the music won't change in any substantial way until that model becomes less profitable. For whatever reason, young women still drive record and ticket sales. Until that changes slutcore will remain the most promoted style.

Do you not know about the darking machines they have them go into? the holy spirits tell me and I do believe its true as they see things I can't. We are being MK ultra'd by CIA niggers and this type of music seems to have an effect, even on me. I do not like participating in society but just going out I get the noded signals and hear them especially when normal niggers drive by they blasts this shit and I can feel my body vibrate and some times it stops and cannot think for myself.

i would not be surprised that I am being targeted by an agency, I don't think I am being gang stalked but they keep their eye on me. best thing to do is, is to ask god to watch over you and ask for shadow beings to surround you in a circle, and yes they are invisible, and I have seen shadow beings before, they are harmless. amen

If you try to drum up a fake beef between my favorite bands I will end you
They’re pretty damn good, every album they released from Here Comes the Indian to Merriweather Post Pavilion is either good or really good. And of course Spirit They’ve Gone Spirit They’ve Vanished is their best

About to listen to this for the first time, why is this and dark side of the moon considered the best albums ever?

the only pink floyd ive listened to is I Wish you were Here
Listen to DSOTM first. Also Animals is their best.
Wish you were Here is better than both of those albums.

People who produce for big amounts of time, how the fuck do you do it? Idk if my brain is fucked but I just can't produce for me than 15 minutes at a day. Yeah I'm beginner but I really want to start producing a lot more man
Just finished a 6+ hour session finishing arranging a song I started yesterday
I have no other advice other than to just do it, once you git gud with the DAW and your tools/workflow you kinda go into autopilot. It helps a lot if you really believe in a song you're making.
Other than that idk. Get rid of other distractions, stop playing video games, stop fapping/no porn.
I feel like my brain is sharper when I don't fap lel
>have an addictive personality
>make it a habit
>actually enjoy it
I literally go 5+ hours a day
I cannot do anything without it feeling like a waste of time unless I've gotten something substantial done production wise that day, it kind of sucks

Like seriously it's just a habit thing. Think about how you got to mindlessly scrolling 4chan or watching tv or whatever- you don't think about it now, but you weren't always like that
Not him but I think it’s from Animal Crossing

Haven't arranged it yet, but do you think anybody would pay for a project that sounds like this?
And which version do you prefer?

Hopefully it’s really good. I like his music, and I feel like he’s very talented, but nothing he’s made has really stood out to me, or stuck.
What about Legends Never Die, the song specifically?

There has never been a popular music artist who didn't have a gimmick.

Let's look at the favorite herald of "real artists" to the casual rock fan for example, Nirvana. People will claim they brought rock back to just being about music and no gimmicks or fashion, but that couldn't be farther from the truth, the gimmick of Nirvana is that they're dissaffected sad guys who wear bummy clothes. There is a concept that is "Nirvana" and anything they would do or wear has to fit in with that concept, it's a gimmick as much as anything else.

I just finished my second Faber book -- I also finished my first sight-reading book.

I have C, F, G, D -- as well as Am, Dm, Em.

Where do I go from here? I have been playing for about 250 days. Less than a year.
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
how old are you? Not trying to meme but genuinely impacts the advice i'd give
Just play -- only classical, really.
The keys in which the songs are written.
I know how chords are constructed, inversions, etc.
At least an hour a day. I practiced for 2 today -- snow day. At whatever time.
keep it up, OP. Sounds like you're doing pretty good. I'd try some Bach, maybe the inventio in F major or one of the 9 or 6 little preludes.

Get the sheet and practice reading separate hands first a few times without stopping, at a very slow tempo keeping it as even as possible. Be patient and take whatever time you need to do this, just make sure you get from beginning to end in one run. Do this with more sheets, even if you don't intend to study the piec6, just to excercise sight reading.

After a few reads, start learning the song, separate hands first, then joined hands. Do it very slowly, be very mindful of the fingering you choose, try not to change it, think ahead and don't rush on trying to make it sound like the record.
Also, Bela Bartok's Microcosm are great books. You can use those pieces for sight reading too. I'd to choose the easiest ones and transpose them to the keys that I know, from the lesser known to very known.

Alternatively, learn new keys using scales, arpeggios and inversions as you've been doing.
and last but not least, even most...

Get a teacher, correct technique and guidance are two essential things that one cannot get by oneself when learning music. Even if you just want to play as a hobby, you want to do it right. Right is the only way when practicing piano. The more you do it right, the more rewarding ot is. Otherwise, frustration and injuries ensue....
