How do you create music?
I had the false assumption that you had to be inspired. That you had to hear some tune in your head, and try to emulate it.
Than I sat down with my guitar and realized, you just have to do it!
That’s what I’m doing now. I’m downloading Fruity Loops right now to see if I can create something with that. I need to create something with layers and drums — so that’s what I’m going to try to do! If you have any tips, let me know!
So it seems that my “dream” of starting a radio station has come true even before the TV thing. 😀
Everyone go like my Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.com/lifedreamradio where I go live and we listen to music together!
I’ve always WANTED to make music for a living. That’s the problem, I’ve always wanted it, I never took any action to bring the dream to fruition. Or the course of action wasn’t clear enough. Than I met someone who inspired me with their poetry, which made me want to write as well. That was the beginning of my writing journey; but I still can’t write a full song.
The real problem is, I don’t feel very musical anymore. If I was a record, I’d be broken.
And I guess I was never all that musical to begin with. I dabbled in using the keyboard and playing guitar, but I’ve always kind of been a drummer — not the best, apparently, but still better than some.
I guess the reason I’m writing all this is I want to get clearer on my path in life. Should I be a musician? Am I a drummer, guitarist, writer, or none-of-the-above?
For one thing, drums are expensive! You can buy a cheap used guitar for $100-200 (CDN) but to find an electronic drum set (which is what I need because I live in an apartment) in my price range is almost impossible.
I need money!
Than I also need the motivation and inspiration to play.
That’s where I’m at at the moment.
Any thoughts are appreciated!

I want to make this blog a little more positive, so I’ll try to write about my morning as best I can.
I went out to buy some groceries for breakfast. I heard the birds chirping. And I saw a blue bird! 🙂 I had a couple nice interactions with people. And I talked with my neighbour as I was coming back home. We talked about music and a little bit about the music industry. If you know about the business side of the music industry and you’re willing to answer some questions, shoot me a message or a comment!
That’s it for now!! Talk to you later! 🙂
Thanks for reading.
Not sure who needs to hear this, but here you are! 🙂
