Even if your not a musician, make more music!

Where is the real live music?

I've been listening to the radio these days and to put it mildly it makes me want to revisit my lunch. There are no instruments on popular stations anymore and everything is created digitally. What happened to Free Bird? What happened to actual musicians messing up and being creative? The sounds of a hollow bodied instrument are like no other sound in the world and we are moving farther and farther away from them.

We are losing lots of quality with sound as well. Most people are listening to things digitally. Mp3 players, computer, headphones, they all take away from the natural sound of instruments. When was the last time you went to see a live orchestra? The energy, the feel of the vibrating instruments, puts a certain je ne sais qua into the air.

My goal for the next twenty years is to actually make music and to play music live whenever I get the chance. Sweet, real, raw and natural music that comes from my heart. That tells about my life and how I live it. That shows the listener my view on reality and might possibly help you while you go through the same thing. I also don't necessarily mean songs about relationships either. I'm not here to try and make the next clubbing hit or something that is marketable to a target. My songs are for wide ranging audiences with the youngest to oldest enjoying equally. Why target your audience when writing from deep within gets to everyone?

Go make music. Even if you think your not good at it.

      Even channeling other people's music is a way to exercise your musical skills. I recently did a cover song by Florence and the Machine. I'd love to hear what you think about it :)

      There is nothing like the experience of a live orchestra. Good stuff. Voted up.

      I love the line "Go make music. Even if you think your not good at it"

      I think we all want real music back in our lives. Akartica, I hope you find the inner calling within you and good luck on your journey to make heart touching music.

      Change the radio station... there's still plenty of traditional instruments being used.
