Here's an example of what it means to make a mistake in thinking you know everything, and preaching arrogance, when you truly know not, and try not.
It may seem out of context, but that's because I deleted the original description out of respect for the person I tried to talk down to, and because I wouldn't have had enough characters for this. Anyway, here's a TL;DR:
I tried remastering a newbie mix again. Like the previous 'lesson', I barely put ANY effort into truly doing anything that could be actually helpful, and then I posted it online boasting like I was standing on a soapbox. The only reason you should listen to this track is if you don't believe me. I did something, but not nearly enough to act the way I did at the time. Worse, at the same time, in my description and comments I was putting one of the remixing artists down because I could not control my emotions and I have a problem with arrogance that I'm trying to work on. Luckily, my fellow community members took it upon themselves to tell me what I truly needed to hear. It was not to be mean, or to be "haters", but to put me in my place, or give me much needed advice, all in a good way. Whether they had prior motive or not, what they did made me realize the error I had made, and inspired me to learn and grow from this. What they did wasn't negative, it was positive. I just hope that someone, if anyone, can learn something from this and grow as well.
Sincerely, and apologetically,
Stay classy, San Fran
