You might want to get a new phone, Thomas. Yours keeps switching to black and white.

I wish I could play a guitar or any musical instrument or maybe sing. I try and I try but I just can’t get the hang of it. Therefore, I appreciate music and the people who create it and pretty much respect every genre. Props to you all and thank you.

If you have any kind of rhythm you can play an instrument. If you have no rhythm then you're a pathetic human being.

ANYONE can learn music and develop rhythm. Those that claim “I just can’t” have never tried. Like everything, it takes study and practice. “Talent” is a myth.

I have tried. And studied. And practiced. I’m just incompetent and pathetic.

How many hours have you logged with a metronome?
How many lessons have you taken?
What did your average practice session look like? (Duration, frequency, activities)
How many hours logged playing with other players?

Here’s the thing. “Study” and “practice” have different meanings.

Study could mean learning songs or going to conservatory. Practice might mean noodling in front of the tv or doing hours of specific exercises.

Another huge factor is that people give up too soon. If you want to play, you need to dedicate a year or two just to sound anything remotely close to “music”.

Most people get frustrated before that point and quit prematurely. You have to ignore how badly you sound during that period. Then keep learning for the rest of your life.

Not digging on you. Genuinely curious. Give me a sense of what you did to learn.

I used to teach up to fifty private lessons a week. EVERY student who worked at it, learned to play. Several went on to major music schools and are pro players now. I just was contacted by one student who is a ****ing ace player now.

When I was a kid, I spent at least four hours a day learning songs and solos from records. Then, when tab came about, I learned entire artist catalogs (Rush, SRV, Boston, Etc.). Hundreds of songs.

I also played with my friends who were st similar levels of development and learned from better players. By the time I was 18, I played 3-4 gigs a week with different bands. I also went to open jams to learn how to improvise. I played scales until my fingers literally bled.

I performed 5-6 times a week for seven years (18-25) with dozens of different bands. I studied all the great blues originators, learning all their stuff.

At 25, I dropped out of music to go to school. Except I had only one skill to pay for it, so it was back to 3-4 gigs a week, plus teaching for another five years.

I started a company and performed 2-3x a week for another 18 years.

I didn’t take any lessons but learned (stole) things from hundreds of players. I stoped practicing many years ago and generally don’t rehearse but my point is, I did a lot of that.

I also habe spend many many hours doing ear training. Specific exercises to recognize pitch and intervals. Very boring but invaluable.

This is the effort it takes. (And I’m mediocre compared to the players around me).

Joe Bonamassa practiced 12 hours a day.

Malcom Gladwell’s book “Outliers” features a study that established that mastery requires on average at least 10k hours no matter the subject.
