/mu/‘s thoughts on shoegaze dreampop in general. Personally, I believe it to be one of the most influential underground genres.
>currently listening to Slowdive btw
I love shoegaze, but I can't stand Western shoegaze. Asian Shoegaze is a lot more fulfilling and melodic. Western shoegaze tries to ape MBV but the only thing they succeed in copying is the vacuum noises. None of the spark that gives MBV their enjoyability. Asian Shoegaze is a lot better.
Kinoko Teikoku, Hitsujibungaku, Manic Sheep, Lemons Chair, My Dead Girlfriend, 17 Years old and Berlin Wall, Spool, Yuuragi. There's so many bands to choose from.

When I record or write songs a lot of times I just work from off of from whatever point of the project I am at and decide what to do/record based on whatever feels right for that moment of the song at that point in time. Basically, rather than going into the project with a full idea of what the entire song will be, I construct each piece at a time, like building a tower so to speak. I obviously do have some vague ideas for like a foundation beneath it all to give myself the structure to work off of but when making the elements of central focus I build off of what comes before it.

So my problem is that when I try thinking of melodies or arrangements I get way way too perfectionistic, or I get mentally stuck on one possible idea and this prevents me from either exploring other possibilities or I mentally get stuck in that one idea's "mode" (for lack of a better word) and can't think outside of it.

I take a lot of influence from artists that seem to create interesting things seemingly effortlessly, and their music can sometimes be less processed and more flexible as a result. But breaking from whatever my train of thought for that moment is so hard for some reason. Should I just not get too attached to any one idea? What do other people do in these situations? I'd like to hear how some of you go about these kinds of things when creating something not overly planned out, because I just end up overly planning out the little bits out of habit and I can't seem to not do this.

For reference I generally like experimental rock type stuff, been listening to a lot of Residents lately

You're thinking way too much about all of this. Experimental music is all made on accident. You have to just keep doing it until you like something.
I just get stuck on ideas though, like I don't want to forget a thought that I like but all this does is inhibit spontaneity. Should my work process really involve discarding thoughts of potential ideas completely? It's like once I think something I'm unconsciously resistant to letting it go.
>full idea of what the entire song will be

construct how you like, as long as you are constructing (and arent a trump faggot)]]

if you know what sounds good, you dont have to search for it
No I'm saying that I get stuck on ideas like I said in the OP, I feel that I should just be throwing things down but I get so strictly stuck on a melody idea rather than just throwing stuff down
I'm having a hard time explaining but read the OP

Fun sounds, the fire-link remix made me a little emotional.

Love it, the slury, chromatic twinkling synth on top of everything. It sounds so innocent like it's just enjoying itself. really a fun listen.

Great for working out and video games. gets me right into that chaotic flow state of mind.

Does anyone know any decent jazz songs to listen to in the background while writing an essay? My usuals are songs like "Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" by Charles Mingus and "Moanin'" by Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers on loop until its finished, but i'd definitely like to expand to lesser known artists.

What jazz artists does /mu/ listen to?

what some really upbeat jazz for working out
what are some albums with a good loud bass all throughout?

It feels so warm and fun to follow along with as a trumpet plays over it
Mingus - Blues and Roots. That's upbeat as in fast, but other anons might have better suggestions for happy sounding jazz.

I've always been a fan of their earlier Innerspeaker Doors-esque bluesy psych rock stuff than the later Supertramp prog pop synthy Lonerism stuff. I really don't like his R&B/disco Currents synth pop stuff. Are most people the same?

Are we seriously gonna do this shit about online guitar lessons?

No, why not give people the BEST advice first rather than handing them with a shitty alternative that takes 10x as long to get anywhere with.

If you want to learn an instrument, get a real life teacher, work with them for a few months and decide where you want to go from there.
i learned stuff way faster recently when i learned by online lessons than when i tried with an instructor a few years back
Hmmmm, I'm gonna stick to my guns and guess the reason for this is that because you had access to learning resources at all times you were able to practice more, with a teacher you can get an attitude of only needing to practice when you're at your lesson.

Other reasoning would be more dedication, I simply don't think there are any people in the world that don't learn better from an experienced real teacher.
Why do people buy Suhr when Pensa exists?
I used Justin Guitar for a week to learn some theory, figure out basic chord shapes, & to play along with him. Then I bought the old Rocksmith for my girlfriend at the time & my life eas ever changed.

I've since done 16 open mics. I haven't been to his site in years.
