it isn't about achievement, it's about doing something that makes you feel good and is fun to share with others. if you can't even get to the point where you can get excited about playing, you probably just don't have the discipline to practice enough, which is your loss

it's just an incredibly insecure and idiotic attitude that doing something artistic is only worthwhile if you can make money or gain status by it

reminds me of trotskilicious brutally hating on board musicians while being too insecure and undisciplined to even learn basic guitar because what's the point if you can't dominate or whatever

Trots declared playing guitar hopeless because he couldn't play a Pixies song immediately after putting his hands on the instrument.

When people suggested that maybe he just practice more until he could and that anybody who doesn't have a motor impairments or a learning disability could probably do it with time, he just got angry because he hates being given realistic and actionable advice instead of having people validate his self-pity.

At least Candy Cane hasn't even gotten far enough to give up out of frustration, declaring not immediately being a virtuoso in something to be reason enough not to start.

solo electric guitar really isn't that great to listen to by itself unless you're an exp player like Marc Ribot or something (for me)

so if you're not gonna play folk and you also don't have the time to network other musicians it's actually not the instrument I would rec

I kinda wish I learned Keyboard or Sax

I mean there is so much you could do with acoustic guitar that is not limited to folk but you just have way too crystallized ideas of "types" of music that are ultimately based on media labels

there's a documentary on Billy Childish of Thee Headcoats and in it he hardly mentions music, he's showing off his paintings, he's like here's where I get my haircut, here's some poetry

I liked that approach...like he's not elevating music as anything special...sound just being this one tool in the punk box

But no one said that, son.

It's perfectly acceptable not to dedicate oneself to what one considers a futile pursuit; e.g. arguing with Netphorians.

I agree. But I don't rate Ribot. I don't like his tone; it's too condescending.

In all seriousness, well done reprise on losing weight and getting back to something you enjoy. I am overweight myself and it's entirely my own fault. I eat out of boredom.

So is reprise male or female?

If female, I am prepared to offer sexual services.

Ok I read the thread and holy shit you guys need to find hobbies that make you smile.

I am legit excited about learning a /jimmy eat word song/ so I am as basic as it gets but it was fun!

Life is hard. Find joy where you can.

This is the song. It’s like three chords in drop D but the riff in the last minute is soooo good and fun.
