Do you play an instrument?Are you good at it?Are you proficient enough to upload cover videos on youtube?
>>118331965yes but i've only done one and it's the only song i know super well aside from one i haven't done a video for yet
My lordy theres not a single worthwhile talent on /mu/.
>>118332020ughfuckfinehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FlteacfWuTcyou literally cannot insult me in any meaningful way, i know i'm cringe and a faggot and everything else
>>118332268also literally from when i was 21
>>118332268wow it's bad
>>118331965I play guitar with some decency, I prefer the drums though because there is just a certain kind of finesse you need to have to play drums that you just don't really achieve with guitar.I would say I am proficient enough but I have no desire to upload anything or bring attention to myself.
>>118333070What's the point of getting better at an instrument and not playing for anyone if you're just going to keep it holed up for no one to listen to? Music is meant to be shared.
>>118333182I don't have a desire to be apart of the music machine. I am not a "musician" or an "artist", those labels are incredibly self-aggrandizing and egotistical. I resent the idea that I would label myself either of those things, or to be labelled that because it is incredibly pretentious. I don't have the fire in me to prove anything musically or artistically to anyone, I just play guitar because it is something to do and I like it.
>>118331965i think so, but right now i don't have any way to record with non-shit quality.
>>118333200Nice bag of excuses there. It's easy to remain anonymous even when recording videos. You just don't show your face dumbo.
>>118333244I don't have to make music for others, the music that I make is just a silly project I do for myself. I make songs because I got the time, I somehow know how to play guitar. There is no law or rule that says I absolutely must be in a band, I must be a somebody, I must be an entertainer or musician for someone else, it is just a hobby.
>>118333321>I prefer to masturbate alone in the corner of my closet instead of joining an orgyfaggot
I've been trying to for the past week but the recording part is hard. I transcribed the song myself and I can play it fine when it comes to recording it I'm worried it sounds like shit. So I start looking into a million ways to make it sound better andn get overwhelmed by the options. This song took me like 15 mins in total to learn but recording it is taking forever. And then I start to think about all the cyberbullies online who will btfo me. I'm aware nobody will even watch the video but those are my reasons. Years ago I did just record shit straight off the phone and it was fine but people on youtube were less spoiled back then.
>>118333321>it is just a hobbyit's much less than a hobby. my aunt knits as a "hobby" and she can knit like a motherfucker and makes cool things, someone who likes cars and modifies his to have 400hp and some neon shit, these are worthy of being called a hobby.what you're doing is like shadowboxing in your room and when someone brings up boxing you say "i can box a little bit, only in my room tho". if you are a decent guitarist (according to yourself) but have no plans of letting anyone hear it even in the future, what's the point?
>>118333394I'm exaggerating with 15 minutes. OK let's say it took a day for me to have this song down to a level where I'd be fine showing it to someone else IRL. But playing it IRL is very different from recording it. As soon as I play it back I start hearing the imperfections. And if I hear them, strangers online will hear them 100x more. People are so critical. It only takes one bum note and suddenly you've got online PhD musicologists telling you it's over. I'm still trying but it's been a very tiring process thus far.
>>118333394>This song took me like 15 mins in total to learn>>118333425>down to a level where I'd be fine showing it to someone else IRLyou didn't learn shit, and you only realize that when it's time to record.like every other musician in existence.
>>118331965>Do you play an instrument?Yes>Are you good at it?Not really>Are you proficient enough to upload cover videos on youtube?No way
>>118333447Let's say 60 minutes writing down roughly how it sounded then by the end of the same day I was pretty happy that it was accurate and I could play it decently. But it feels like 15 compared to the literal days and days of trying to record it, which in my head seemed like it should be the easy part.>you didn't learn shitWell I learned that I can't record music, so it hasn't been for nothing.
>>118333357Cool. Not interested in playing music as a career. I just play guitar, practiced a few scales, I am no satriani or gilbert, just a guy with a guitar>>118333414I said decent, not "balls to the wall will melt your face with how good I am". I am not a good guitarist, just good enough.
>>118333414>what you're doing is like shadowboxing in your room and when someone brings up boxing you say "i can box a little bit, only in my room tho".Faggot. This is pretty funny though.
>>118333490>Well I learned that I can't record music, so it hasn't been for nothing.no>I was pretty happy that it was accurate and I could play it decentlyyou're underestimating the difference between "decently" and "ready to be recorded". can you play it with 0 mistakes every time, with 0 thoughts about wanting to change something and doing all the nuances right? if not, you can't record it.
>>118333525>with 0 thoughts about wanting to change something and doing all the nuances right?This is the main thing. There's always some variation that comes to mind that seems better and then if I leave it for a while the other way seems better instead. And even if you do play it with 0 mistakes then you could add extra tracks forever. I don't get how anyone just settles for one approach without just compromising and calling it a day.
>>118333554everything you're saying is normal and part of the difficulties that come with recording things, you just have to decide on a solution that you're satisfied with.
>>118333394Aye... the recording is always the hard part.
>>118333414>what you're doing is like shadowboxing in your room and when someone brings up boxing you say "i can box a little bit, only in my room tho"That's a good one.
>>118333499There's nothing more disgusting than mediocrity.
>>118333592Not everyone can be pink floyd or led zeppelin.
>>118333499You don't deserve to have a guitar. Give it to me instead and I'll put it to better use in more capable hands.
>>118333602>the only two skill levels are "no one has ever heard me play" and "pink floyd or led zeppelin"
>>118333321the Chad doing it for himself>>118333414>>118333357>>118333244the virgin REEE LET US HEARgo fuck yourselves, you're not the boss of him!
>play some sick riffs in guitar store>had visions of people giving high fives, job offers>nobody cared>play louder>guitar wagies just doing their wagie chores, cleaning etc>"we're closing in 15 minutes"
>>118333667>heh, yeah I'm pretty good at playing guitar...>N-NO...!! I CAN'T SHOW IT TO YOU
>>118333182>Music is meant to be shared.Why?
>>118333182What if you just get joy out of playing/composing music? Would you say the same about someone who paints in his spare time?
>>118333709https://voca.ro/15LBlHMCmed6Like I said, I would say I am good enough and made some mistakes here
>>118333777that's pretty good anonwhat's so bad about playing this kind of thing and having the 5 people present in the room enjoy it a little bit?
>>118333850I am not an artist or a musician.
>>118333850nta but conversely why would it be so important to do that?
>>118333875>heh, yeah I can play guitar...>N-NO...!! I'M NOT AN ARTIST OR MUSICIAN THOUGH
>>118333884i can only speak for myself. i don't go out of my way to play for others, but if i see a guitar or a piano just sitting there, i am definitely playing it, and if there's people around and i play something nice that day, then they'll have enjoyed it. same for things i post to my social media, i'm not thinking of others when i post videos, but when i do it my friends like it.it's not that it's important to do it, but rather that it costs nothing.
>>118333875do you have to be to play music? it would make sense to think like this if you're from an area where there's a really good music scene and the average (pro) musician is a beast.
YesYesWorking on it ;)
Can someone rate my edgy lyricshttps://voca.ro/19Bupct4cEF9A long, starry night aheadAlone with the truckAnd the howls of the deadA million eyes watching me killI buried her in the ravine by the hillCops came aroundThey came asking for herThe cops came aroundI told them where they wereThere's an infinite open space inside my headIt's from where they come sometimesWhen I'm in bedThey demand things I can't really knowThey ask for things Remind me of what I oweSometimes I can't hear them at allWhen someone cries I can't hear them at all
>>118336023Your accent sells it better than if it was an american singing that. I don't know if that is a good or bad thing but they are 6/10. Just my opinion though, I am a nobody.
>>118333850BECAUSE HE DOESN'T FUCKING WANT TO
>>118332277lol anon i did the same thing when i was 17 with the same song that's crazy
>>118331965>Do you play an instrument?yes, drums>Are you good at it?yes>Are you proficient enough to upload cover videos on youtube?yes but i never havei play covers with my band all the time, and ive learned plenty of songs for drum recitals as a kid when i took lessons
I used to do guitar covers on youtube but would always immediately delete a video if it got a dislike. I'm not a very secure person...
>>118338465>all talk with nothing to show for
>>118338604ok heres my band doing xanny by billie eilish>inb4 shit cover choicehttps://vocaroo.com/1dJlCtkhWHz0
>>118338810That's quite well done. Got any more?
>>118331965YesYesYesI just don’t care to learn and cover things. I just make music all day. Not concerned with being seen for it since it’s not satisfactory.
>>118338862thanks anon!i have a recording of us jamming on a 25 or 6 to 4 type descending thinghttps://vocaroo.com/17jY1DS3W859
>>118331965>yes>yes>yesbut i cant do it im too anxious and i hate myself, if i do it its going to be guitar covers of obscure country solos where you only can see the guitar
>>118333182its because we are shut in neets that get scared of such a notion
>>118333394>>118333570that's the thing, you have to know to record, export, master and mix at least somewhat decently which is a lot of extra work when making a good performance is already enough work
>>118333850>having the 5 people present in the room enjoy it a little bityou have to assume that the people want to hear, most times they couldn't care less even though you've practiced like a madman.
>>118339642Holy shit I can understand being an introvert but you don't have to show your face to anyone when uploading videos you massive faggots.
>>118339769if you are going to sing its almost a prerequisite to show your face no?
https://voca.ro/19Bupct4cEF9Record some stuff at home but rarely release it. Never really satisfied with the recording and hate putting my name on something i dont like personally. sometimes think about posting some covers on youtube, but i never go through with it.
>>118339948Not at all. How do you think jap vocalists make covers? They improvise and replace the video with something else tangible to retain attention.
>>118339683if you've practiced like a madman but still can't produce something people want to hear you may be doing something wrong
>>118340044no i mean most people only care if the music sounds good or not, they're not musicians who knows how hard it can be to rehearse and play things that sound easy to do
Why tf is everyone guitarists here?
>>118331965The only cover I have ever uploaded was 10 years ago when I was 14. I mess up multiple times, it's not great. I am a lot better now!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sm0ICFL3QwI>inb4 no grils on the internet
>>118341411Nice larp but that's not you.
>>118341411>10 years agoWhy did you stop?
>>118341442Haven't posted a timestamp in 5+ years but I think it's worth it to dispel myths about the demographics here. Ignore my hair I just got back from the gym>>118341484I didn't stop, I actually play keyboard in a band now! I just don't upload anything because it's never gonna get more than a couple hundred views anyways, so what's the point, y'know?
>>118332268Cover sucks a bit but you're cute
>>118341544you don't exist, impossible
>>118340355>most people only care if the music sounds good or notw-what's wrong with that?
>>118341776I regret to inform you that I doThere have always been women(female) here, most of us are just autistic lmao>>118333182Honestly, I just get intrinsic joy out of playing and making music, I don't need anybody else to see it. I recently got into microtonal music and I already know nobody wants to hear that shit; I'm just enjoying discovering new kinds of intervals and exploring theory beyond anything I've ever studied before. I don't need to share it with anybody for it to be a valuable and fulfilling use of my time.
HAHAHAHAHAH yuo are all liek little baby. Watch this.https://vocaroo.com/14pxNuD7Z71i
>>118342263OR DOWN IN MEXICOOOOOOOOOsounds good anon
>>118341544>posting a actual face pic herefuck off fag
I autistically make video game soundtracks for my own enjoyment.I'll give myself a made up scenario happening in a non-existent game and then set challenges like having to use appregiatted chords, minor harmonic scales in a piece of music that would accompany the scene.this is the concept track for a country cottage save theme, i took "home" from undertale as my inspiration for it.https://vocaroo.com/19JeKDVHpU2XI want to get a piano soon so I can start shifting into orchestral compositions.
>>118344308>thread about covers you've made>post cover I made>someone accuses me of not being me>prove them wrongIt would be weird as fuck if I were an adult man sharing some random 14 year old girl's video, I had every right to prove I am who I said I am
>>118333182My piano teacher said the same but I disagreeI play for myself
