Great text Daniel,and I agree all the way.So many times when I was on shows I heard singers that sing like I never could,but this just makes me want to practice more and make my self happy.My voice is my own,and ,my style is my style.I will do my best to contribute as best as I can.

This is a great piece of advice to be sure, just keep slogging away. Some day's you're on, some you're not so on, but it's normal. I go up and down all the time. I think its analogous to life in general.

Practice, you must!

Personally I learnt to shred becuase I loved the sound of others doing it, so I kind of disagree.
However I strongly think that you should love the way to the top, not just the top.

The journey's the best part!

I am certainly not saying you shouldnt look to others for inspiration, if i want to learn how to play like Ynqwie, i listen to Yngwie etc...


The whole point though is never get caught in a place in your mind where you feel inadequate, striving for perfection on the guitar is a long long battle there are still things all of us can and want to learn its a matter of focus.


Thinking you are not cut out for it because someone beat you in a "Guitar battle" for example. Thats ridiculous thinking. Just because i can't play like Steve Vai, doesnt mean i can't be on the same stage as him metaphorically speaking.

As i said, there are things all of you do that makes you unique, nobody can take that from you...develop it....hone it...master it...share it. Music has enough room for anyone willing to give it enough time and effort.

Certainly your level of success may differ than someone else, but that doesnt mean your not important. Always remember that.


Daniel
