“So what if it’s just four chords! It’s fun isn’t it”
The prospect of competition and its innuendos is fundamentally what drives most bands to pursue music today. In the following predicament, the underlining purpose of music is lost. The design of most musicians concerts are based on playing immensly technical stuff that a very small portion of the audience can indeed comprehend.
What do we have to say about that?
Abraham Maslow changed the face of modern psychology by proving that all humans are born with a positive outlook. Well we say, that music is what keeps a persons positivity up! Irrespective of what people think of music, adding a portion of emotion in it can completely change the way in which it is perceived.
What we can do about it?
All it takes to get music appreciated is getting your emotions into the picture. Play whatever you want; whichever genre you appreciate, but make sure that you really know what you’re playing and that your heart does too.
CREATE. RIOT. OF. SUCH. STANDARD. THAT. PEOPLE. FORGET. WORRIES. OVER.
