    I've had a bass guitar

    for a while but only just now might have time for lessons. I've taught myself all my other instruments except for piano lessons. But I wanna get really good at bass and take proper lessons. Any tips?

    and guitar. Music is one thing that has always just helped me relax, feel different emotions stronger then i've felt before. It has helped me grow as a person. It is the one place i go to escape from the world and my problems, sometimes i even go to my music to think of...

    Being a musician is the best thing in the world

    I'm not even kidding! As soon as you pick up that guitar or pen and paper or start singing, it's like your worries just flow out with the song (most of the time.) I'm 15 and my biggest dream is to become a musician, I will do everything I can to make sure that dream becomes...

    I just have this problem with my ability to

    handle jealousy when I'm around other musicians. Most of my friends are in bands, play guitar etc. but I never feel proud or happy for them whatsoever,I just feel constant envy of their talents because I believe they're more talented than me. And so I can appear quite sarcastic...

    Technically I call myself a recovering one

    though. Bass for 26 years, guitar for 25 years and I've dabbled with drums for 24 years...haven't owned a kit for 22 years though. Mostly self taught, play more by feel than theory even though I do grasp some theory. I consider myself recovering due to spending 23 years...

    I know that music is an expression; Therefore,

    it's a language that can be use for communication. Music can make us cry, happy, sad, and excited, and There are many experiences in the past where music was use for this exact purpose. As such, I know that music has both a natural side as well as spiritual. So, in my growth as...

    I wanted to upload one of my "off" songs,

    meaning it is sort of on the sideline. This is some of my solo work, the sound quality is low due to over compression however this piece is being remade and mastered as we speak. This is sort of a stormy song. Not many people have listened to it all the way through. The great...

    but my dream instrument is the cello. I love deep string instruments but a bass is a bit too big for me so I've always wanted a cello. I was getting one for Christmas because I got a really good deal on one. Normally I couldn't afford one but I finally, finally got a chance to...

    My student had been accepted to her college of

    choice, and was offered five figures in scholarship awards for her first year of study. I used to think that playing music was the best feeling in the world. But now I know different: watching your student play music is the best feeling in the world.

    song, so I did, lol. It's called "True", a tune by Spandau Ballet in 1983. I don't really do music anymore and put it on my dad's youtube channel he said it was ok. I like the challenge of finding the same instruments and settings. Although this cover isn't perfect I hope you...

    A Night At The Bar With The Pitches.

    So a C, an E-flat, and a G walk into a bar. The bartender says, "sorry, but we don't serve minors." So E-flat leaves, and C and G have an open fifth between them. After a few drinks, the fifth is diminished and G is out flat. F comes in and tries to augment the situation, but is...
