Ari., Chill thing (read description)

00:0000:37

heres a chill thing thats pretty trash if you ask me, couldve been alot better but i honestly feel like i need to at least publish something. I mean, i go so long without pubbing that i feel like i just die altogether, i cant make any full songs for months on end and whatever i publish inbetween is pretty bad, i dont want to constantly pub stuff like this either, i want to be able to make something that i am proud of but i always feel like i never can, when developing a track i can never find enough inspiration in what im creating to continue it, im not inspired by my own music...to make more music, and im a little scared because i dont know if that means i may not cut out for music or what, i dont know what the future holds for me. And i get that every artist goes through block, but i dont think i've ever seen someone go through such long periods of block as me, so i guess if i could get some tips that would be great. thank you all for your time, sorry for making you read a novel haha <3

      btw if you have trouble with chords or melodies, i strongly suggest you try using hookpad, you can write chords very easily with it, can change tempo, key, chord modes, create sus2,4,and add9 chords, all sorts of stuff, its usually much easier to write melodies when its so easy to create the chords as well (link is only visible to registered users)

    i think this is a good piece of music in its own right, you got something good going on and it's not clearly fair on yourself to say you're not 'cut out for music' because this shows your potential. everyone goes through highs and lows. the hardest part about making music, or any kind of art, is that you must produce something from nothing; it just seems so mysteriously hard to do, and even if you make the first steps (like this piece), all you can perceive is that emptiness you started with.

      i'm at exactly the same stage of life as you, about to turn 17 and confused and scared with this sudden pressure all around me to scurry to snatch a career and find something 'acceptable' to make a living. so many people just 'settle' with wherever they happen to end up in life, but i'm not doing that; i'm desperate to turn my passion for music and arts into a career, and i hope you are too. because i feel like if you can get past these stupid blocks and achieve success, it'll be so worth it.

      anyway this could all be useless information but at least try it. if "music is your greatest passion" as you said then take that opportunity because you only get one shot at it.

    in response to that desc, i had an artists block for about 2 years, didnt produce anything good during that time and it fuckin sucked (my account died right down and i had to start all over again when i came back about a year ago), i felt the same way you described, maybe im not cut out for production, it seems like too much to realize your own ideas while youre producing and whenever you do get those ideas down they seem terrifically underwhelming, not how you had it in your mind kinda thing

      Good Luck! Im certain you could use it. Remember to come back, that is what makes it a "hiatus".

      (description P.S. i guess?) I'm about to turn 17 and i realize that just within a year a shitton is going to change, and i feel like im at some turning point in my young adult life where i need to choose what im going to do for the rest of my life, now i love making music don't get me wrong, but i just... i dont know if i see it going anywhere, and as music is my greatest passion, it really crushes me not to know if im really...again, cut out for it, for lack of better words.

    i kinda feel like half the people here are kind of missing the point, i appreciate the love and support for the track, i really do, but my main focus was to talk about what was said in the description, i dont mean to sound ungrateful or rude, so i apologize if i do. this track was mainly just a means of getting what i was trying to say across, because more people are going to realize that im trying to say through a published track rather than just something i say on my wall, not many people talk

    ^^ Usually what I do to get through the Artist's block is to make as many drafts of random experimental stuff as possible, and then choose a few that I think would benefit from a full song.

      "That does happen to me a lot, but when that happens I just present myself with the mindset that if this track flops, I've got tens more to try out. That's why, for me, it helps to create as many drafts as humanly possible (with work still being put into them, of course)." never really thought about it this way, might try that out :) thanks

      I also used to do a lot of shorts last year until I made the decision to start working on official tracks, which you've been doing as well. Really all that matters is that you're coming up with cool stuff, regardless of length, in my opinion.
