To those who make music. What did you learn along your journey? What were the most important skills you acquired? What tips would you give beginners?


Be your own worst critic without being too inhibited; high standards are a must, but don't allow yourself to become paralyzed by perfectionism. Have a vision for what it is you're trying to accomplish while being willing to accept criticism. Whether you're into composition, production, or physically playing an instrument, get regular practice. It can take years to get good at what you're doing, so the sooner you start the better. Don't make hoarding equipment or lusting after legendary hardware a higher priority than actually making music. Having a Jupiter-8 or a vintage Gibson guitar isn't necessarily going to make you a better musician and might not even be the best choice for the sound you're going for.

I just make music on and off as a private hobby and am probably not the kind of person you're looking for advice from, though.


to alienate as many people as possible


>What tips would you give beginners?

get a job instead



honestly this has helped me out a lot more than I ever thought. not saying it's a good thing. I always wanted to collaborate, or make music with people whose skills were equal to or better than. when i stopped waiting for them to do something, I started making more myself. it was just me all along, which is a little depressing, but now I'm making stuff.
