Showing off!
« on: June 28, 2021, 11:22:41 AM »
Why do we put vids up , asking for feedback ? is that what we want , or just adulation? i.e , i've been playing for 5 minutes and am worried because it takes me 3 days to play Bach's chaconne?

Well I gave up my attempts at music making when I realised I could never have a significant impact, so I guess adulation would have been my goal. :-[

I just want to share the music I make with other people. It's nice to hear what people think in return, yes, but receiving critique is not my goal.
