THIS BLOG IS MY FUCKING LIFE!!! I've been playing piano (IT'S NOT A FUCKING KEYBOARD YOU TYPE WITH A FUCKING KEYBOARD) for 11 years and singing for forever and ugh. There are SO many posers who play "guitar" or "bass." My favorite is asking a person who plays bass when they're in orcestra and they're like "oh no the electric kind" and I'm like okay then you don't play bass you play poser bass. Same with tab readers. They should all die and go to hell and I don't even believe in hell.
I personally have nothing against people who play electric anything or people who use tablature; I know some pretty amazing musicians who fall into those categories. You are, of course, entitled to your opinion, but I will request that you keep the hate to an overtly humorous level and refrain from saying things like “they should all die and go to hell”. I’m glad you’re liking the bloggage, though.
While I'm not a music major (I study bio and Japanese), I was in orchestra, and even now, I still keep a violin in my room because it's the only instrument that I can keep in my room. Trust me when I say I understand at least some of your pain. At my uni, music majors are required to of course take lessons that are generally time consuming. What really bothers me is that 4 years of lessons here will get you 2 credits toward a music major and that is it. :(
Man, I didn’t get any credits for six years of lessons. Then again, the college I went to for music was really small and did things strangely. Music schools are just crazy.
you know what angers me? when people in other majors are like "your so lucky you're a music major, it's so much easier." please bitch, try memorizing thirteen key signatures in a week, and then talk to me.
Fooor serious. Never in my life have I worked so hard as when I majored in music. Fuck no this shit ain’t easy!
Oh my goodness... for once, a place to share the pain of being a music major!! My friends were telling me about this blog, so I came to check in on it. Keep up the work!! I'm really enjoying this stuff.
NOBODY UNDERSTANDS US.
Glad to have provided a home for the lost and practice-weary.
This happened when my music friends and I were talking about how we have this girl that is really good at singing but she never sings the two 8th notes in a spot correctly. She always sings it as a dotted 8th and a 16th note instead.
Most of my friends, that I used to think knew a lot about music, learn only the basics of music so they don’t even know half the crap that I have to learn. A lot of my friends to teach themselves guitar skip right to chords and scales or the correct name of a chord.
This hasn’t even been up for an hour and it’s up to 100 followers. You guys fucking rock! I need to go to bed, but keep making MMOstriches and submitting them and I will get on that shit in the morning. Endless love <33333
