Bejack Posted July 6, 2014 Report Share Posted July 6, 2014 I don't know where to start with this train of thoughts i have right now so i suppose i'll start with my job... So at work there are these 3 guys to whom i told i make music as a hobby and they asked me to listen to it so i gave them a usb stick with what i considered my better stuff. I wasn't really expecting anything at all but they came back to me the day after and they told me that it was awesome and they liked it a lot (no they were not playing a bad joke on me ). But in my mind i'm like "it's not that great if you would listen to other instrumental music out there you would know". I politely say "thank you i'm glad you appreciate it" even though i don't really share this feeling of my music being awesome. I like to make music. I know i'm not very good but composing music is something constructive i can do with my time and when i finish a project i have a bit of satisfaction. I don't mind uploading my music on the web for the whole world to listen to but i'm extremely shy and nervous when i show it to people i personally know. Part of that must be from a lack of confidence about my music making skills. Another thing that i have been thinking is maybe because i create the track from scratch i don't like it as much as they do because i'm not discovering anything new. You know like new music is always fun to listen to because you discover something different. Usually i am happy with a new track i have made for a couple of days, sometimes weeks but then i get bored of it and i want to create something new again. This might come off as "weepy" if i can use that term but let me assure you i am not in that state of mind at all. I just think alot about the things i do. Maybe my fear of rejection from my peers is greater than i think it is. Maybe i'm being too harsh on myself. Maybe i think too much... So i would like to know how you girls and guys feel about your own music. Do you present your music with a ton of confidence, almost in a cocky way i could say, do you present it like you would any other song or do you not present it at all to people you know and keep your music a private thing? Was there ever a time where you felt something similar than what i have described? If so how did you deal with it? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
