Music making - learn how to
extract great music out of every instrument
(this info is old - you can ask a question in the forum )
You have always dreamed of becoming a great
musician and play in a great band. But how on
Earth will you make that dream come truth? Easy -
just take a ride on musicmaking and you've
made the most important step - the beginning.
This site will give you ideas that will inspire
your music making experience.
Peter Stankov is writing down his (and
others') ideas about guitar playing, singing,
rhythm and everything you need to know about
making music. From time to time there is a music
piece like this
here available for download (absolutely,
exclusively, super, mega FREE! :-) that will
serve as a lesson for you to learn from. This
includes a track from Peter Stankov's latest
album Cerotonine - World Music. Click

Music making could be a job, a hobby and a bad
habbit all at the same time. Well, by bad habbit
I mean that for your neighbours you have the bad
habbit of making concerts they don't want :-) As
a job it can make you a millionaire if you are a
good business man. And as a hobby, it can be a
pleasant activity you do in your garage.
So, it may be said that being able to join
those three things into one is the key to
becoming a succesfull musician. Because apart
from being just a musician, you have to remain a
human being. May be you have (or you want to
have) a wife/husband, so you shouldn't let all
that go in order to become a better player.
In the process of making music you come up
with many ideas in your head, which are not
always good for your life outside your music
career. It's good to be able to play nice music -
everybody would agree, but what is nice music?
What is music? It is something nice you hear
isn't it? So maybe if you want to make good
music, you want to make good sounds or sounds
that you like.
I like all kinds of music. Or at least I try
to find something good in everything I hear, but
sometimes it just doesn't sound good, so it goes
in my music "recycle bin". Maybe it is
a good piece, maybe thousands of people are crazy
about it, but I don't like it, so for me it's not
good and I think its makers are not good music
Maybe in order to make good music, you have to
believe that it's good. You need to have a
favorites folder and a recycle bin. Other wise
you won't be able to put your music in one of the
categories and thus satisfy your taste.
So, I think one thing is for sure - anybody
who likes music can become a good musician. But
first he has to believe in his taste and start
making the music he likes. It's easy if you know
what you like. Subscribe
