So I really want to make music, but I don't know how to play any instruments. I'm 20 and I feel like it's kinda late to learn an instrument. Is this possible without musical knowledge? I feel guilty that I listen to so much music, yet have no idea how any of it is made.

Good to know. How did you get past the "switching chords" hurdle most beginners seem to have? I always have trouble with that, guess you just need to practice until you know each chord by muscle memory.
>>
>>73043083
Im still getting comfortable with switching chords, right now im playing the intro to Karma Police over and over for example
It has some relatively easy chord switches to practice

Just wanted to point out that this thread was actually decent and helpful, it makes me happy. /mu/ can be pretty shit most of the time.

Also, if you want to make your own music, don't obsess too much about sounding like the bands and albums you really like, try to make your music truly your own. Imagine what you would like to hear the most, and capture that sound. It's difficult, but nobody said shit was easy.

Yeah, what the hell. I was hanging around on this thread and the /shugazi/ one and for a while I forgot I was on /mu/.

My biggest problem is exactly sounding too much like the bands and albums I like. I actively try to avoid it but I keep subconsciously copying them

Well, if you're inspired by djent and black metal musicians, it's become a parody of itself at this point. Everyone can get a 7 string guitar a make epic djent songs. Good luck copying or even coming close to the sound of Zappa or Brian Eno for example.

What's the new DG album going to be like? Will it be like Steroids or are they going to go with a different sound?
>>
as long as they experiment a bit more again and don't do another tms/bp I'll be content
Steroids was definitely a step in the right direction
>>
I expect it to be a bit different from steroids, I see steroids as the Interview/fashion week to this new album.

That being said, holy fuck do I want more weird shit like steroids from them. I haven't been as floored by a new sound from them since NOTM.

Had one or two avantgarde tracks tops, the rest just quirky blues.

In the town where I was born
Lived a man who sailed to sea
And he told us of his life
In the land of submarines
So we sailed up to the sun
Till we found a sea of green
And we lived beneath the waves
In our yellow submarine
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
And our friends are all aboard
Many more of them live next door

Yeah, that's a pretty thoughtful song and effectively establishes the counterculture, hippie movement the album supported.

Are Viper's albums actually different? He can't actually produce so much different music right? It's just 50 different beats with 10 different sets of first time voals over it.

The only thing that keeps me from driving this car half-light jack-knife into the canyon at night

I've got musical anhedonia. I can like music for things like interesting lyrics or a connection to something else I enjoy, but music itself does absolutely nothing for me.
However I find the subcultures that form around different genres to be fascinating and some of them really appealing. Obviously I can't engage with these subcultures if I have no appreciation for what they form around,but I enjoy their varying aesthetics from afar.
My question for you /mu/ is, as people who can enjoy music, are there any of these subcultures or aesthetics you find appealing, while also not enjoying the music they are founded around? And if so, how do you engage with them if at all?

word do you read books out loud for the sound of the words ?
