So, I've been writing music for a little bit now, and I was having a bit of problems, mainly because I only have acess to a guitar (Which I barely know how to play) and my bass. And to make things worst, I have no recording software, my computer microphone sucks, and Nothing else to record with.
So, this is my proposition: -Buy a Lightsnake Guitar-to-USB plug-in -Save up for electric drums (Will take a while) -Torrent Sony ACID -??? -PROFIT!!1!!1
You see, it all starts with school, actually. It's for my Career Development class, and we are required to do volunteer work to pass the course, or we don't get the credits we need to pass. Luckily, I passed for a bass teacher at my local Boys and Girls Club.
Too Fucking Easy.
No one wanted bass lessons, so I just show up every Tuesday night for 2 - 2 1/2 hours of playing bass, playing the Wii, Ping-pong, computer, or I can jam with the local teachers.
These days, you hear or see (if you go on sites like YouTube, or any site with video uploading) many people who believe that the faster you play a instrument, the better you are...
What the Fuck?
Music has been, and always will be, about the sound produced from an instrument, NOT how ZOMG fast you can play it. If you are actually a good musician, wouldn't the knowledge of using scales and chords make you a good musician?
Sure, Shred guitar/Speed Metal/ etc. might use more complex methods, but if you think about it, most Shred songs sound the same.
