First and for most. Thank you to all who follow and read my blog. I don’t have many followers,but it is nice to know someone cares about my writing. Eventually, in my career, I hope to one day write reviews or articles about music/musicians that actually matter.
With that being said, yes I have my passions and my ambitions in life, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to throw people under the bus just to get there. I’ll work hard every single day to prove to the world but most importantly to myself, that I am good enough.
*Side note* This little rant came from something that happened this past week, and I made a vow to myself to never become such a person.
I guess I won’t talk about a band this week, I’ll talk about one of the most inspiring artists, I feel, that has changed music forever. I grew up listening to Eric Clapton, and believe me, I was not a fan. But as I got older, and my parents made me listen to opera, classic rock music, church music, I started to realize the patterns in all genres. There’s passion behind their music. Which is why, I, to this day will say, Eric Clapton is in my top five favorite musicians of all time. Mainly because his artistic ability on the guitar is just phenomenal. Because true musicians know, they don’t have “natural” ability. Although, I hate those who practice way less than most and still kill it. But it takes a lot of time and dedication to become good at something. The way he plays guitar, you can tell, a lot of time and dedication was put into his playing.
I think that’s what life should be about. Dedication to something you’re passionate about. Whether it’s sports, accounting, science, research, music, you should want to wake up every morning doing what you love.
