to play music
    #3802940 - 02/19/05 12:36 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

my dream is to play all over the world in a successful music group
nothing makes me feel more free than being swallowed up by all that noise that I am helping conduct, and i would love to exhibit that feeling and make a living off of it.

I have about 3 semesters left before I get my bachelors in art. but while im in school, music remains a side project. I am tempted to drop out of classes now, get a full-time job and start saving up cash for musical equipment, and spend my free time writing music and searching for like-minded people to collaborate with.

it feels like a mission to me, I am 21, creative on the guitar, have a good spatial and dynamic sense for compositions, and have a good decade to get something working. my whole life i've sort of half-assed everything - except for music.. it's like the one thing i've taken 100% seriously and have no doubt i could devote my life to.

its a choice.. if i am determined enough i know i can make it happen. thats a big 'if', though, and the world is full of distractions and depressions...

Well finish your 3 semesters, then get the job. Don't drop out when you're only a year away (take a summer semester).

The wise don't strive to arrive.

Zen Master Shunryu Suzuki says, "What is more important, to make a million dollars, or enjoy your effort, little by little, even though it is impossible to make that million? To be successful, or to find some meaning in your efforts to succeed?"

We should give up goal orientation and simply be. Life is not about getting somewhere in a hurry, but enjoying the journey to the full.

Ok.. that's wise knowledge, but not helpful in all situations

Finish college. There is really no reason not too. Is it holding you back from making music? Class is 3 hours a day tops, and a little studying.

Im really not trying to dissuade you from your goal, but arent there enough guitarists out there? I have never once heard of a band that cant find a guitarist. What is it about the guitar that makes everyone want to play nothing but that? The guitarist market is saturated, even for good guitarists.
