on piano obviously
on drums (which is easier since it's basically the same thing over and over again).
No, you pretty much just answered your question. Well, I mean, learning to play by just listening to something is a pretty good skill. You know, connecting a note being played to what the actual note is. You hear a chord and you are able to hear that its a G Major chord or something like that.
Doesn't really matter if it's "overdone" if you enjoy creating.
If you need ideas, here's my tip:
Find something that you really like but that there isn't enough in the world.
Start doing that yourself.
This is easier the more obscure the music you're into is.
>learning to play electronic arrangements
I love making stuff like this but it would never sound right played on a piano, there are too many effects and different instrument sounds at play. It's more of a studio piece than something you'd actually learn to play
God, I wish I never stopped playing piano, but I kinda started too late.
Video game music was the first thing I tried too, I had found some sheet music for Final Fantasy 7 and 8.
It's never too late anon, I'm 26 and I'm still no virtuoso
All that really matters is
1. Having music ideas and
2. Being half-way able to string them together into something you can practice
Even if you just learn other people's shit until you feel confident enough to come up with yourself there's no shame in that. Most musicians are self-taught including some of the most successful ones ever.
He's right though anon
There are only so many original ideas, especially if we're getting specific as ideas that others would be interested in hearing
There's a reason so many hit songs share the same chord progression, because most music is the same shit over and over and people like it that way
However he's wrong to take the next step of saying there's no point in making music

Saved for later reminder. Great tips for those days when things don't work out. Thanks.
I've been making music myself for quite a while now. I can design sounds, mix and master well enough.
I'm just not that good at composing, and if I had put more effort into piano I might be better by now.
It's just that thanks to ADD, my motor skill just isn't that good, and I don't think that's ever going to go away. At least I can always sequence. I can compensate by being good at that at least.
look pop is not an easy label to put on music since it means its music made to sell, which is pretty much everything today
Even accomplished musicians with various genres still have pop structure to a large amount of songs
>some anon says you get bored of playing vidya music
>I say you can get bored of anything if you do it enough
you should be as well rounded as possible is all
having a repitiore is good, you can always make changes to songs you know well and make it sound different
I am personally looking to me more of a scoring and studio type artist than a performer so there's no shame in that
Trent Reznor doesn't go on stage and play his music himself, he gets a bunch of session guys to do it and even then no individual one of them is comprehensively playing the piece. His music is so multilayered that it ends up being lots of simple components which become complex from the larger perspective of the arrangement
Anything from Touhou. Works great on piano.
>its music made to sell
>which is pretty much everything today
Hold it, that's just not true.
Right now it's easier than ever to release and find music online. The internet makes a grounds for distribution and discovery for a lot of artists that just weren't there before in the first place.
play dis OP: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_asG0vmsec
>play piano, banjo, guitar, mandolin, slide
>get bored because I cant learn anything new
>dont have motivation to learn new genre
>written too many songs to finish adequately
>talent wasting away
>all this great Japautist piano virtuosity I'm missing out on just because I don't play weebshit
Life is suffering.
I never understood the people who feel the need to always judge music. "Pop music is to little of this", "classical is to much of that". Why not try to understand each piece of music on its own premises? The only person who wins is you.
This, there is something to take away from just about any music whether you enjoy it or not
Things only plebs say:
>X genre isn't music
>X instrument takes no talent
>this is just noise
it's not video game music, it's a cover. and there are lots of covers by lots of different artists in lots of different genres of 2who music. just search youtube some time for it.
>All those arps
>Duplicating up an octave or two to make it seem hard.
>Sweeps that sound like shit.
>All those unnecessary keys that only serve to make it sound like shit.
This is how you tell when an amateur, or a fucking retard is behind something.
I got this for $500 it has weighted keys and a pedal. I've had it for about a week now and have found no issues whatsoever. If you plan on buying a new keyboard, always check reviews too, those help alot
Here's some versions that are actually good
Skyward sword has some really nice songs. Fairly easy to play as well.
To be honest any zelda title has pretty simple but great sounding songs.
Because that's the point of background music, you need to put something that won't stand out, and will fit with the events unfolding on screen. Hence why they often use loops.
you just suck, and your further excuses with using an ERG just prove this, as most guys playing 7/8 strings try to mask their inability to play in time and create good riffs with chugga chugga
I don't own an ERG, I thought using an 8 string to mimic the lows and highs of a piano would be more fitting since you have more contrast.
I'm talking more about making a whole arrengement and not only covering a part of the melody.
I fully understand that, I own 2 7strings myself (not keen on 8 tho) but I just noticed those things with most people.
Anyway, most things are easily achievable on 6 strings. If you wanna some heavy shit then check Sylosis, they're heavy as fuck because they use inverted power chords (prime with a fourth instead of fifth), even if they're in classic E standard
