Being a guitarist...

Well when I was still in highschool i dream big, I dream of being famous though playing a guitar in a band.
But reality strikes me. Naintindihan ko na yung pino-point out ni ermats at ni erpats noon. Di lahat ng musikero sumisikat. Kelangan mo magtapos at magka trabaho or better magka business to support that hobby.

I guess they're right. Now playing live on gigs are just my outlet from all the stress of my personal and office life.
It helps me on my temper and anger issues. Yes i feel kinda off or stressed pag di kami nakakapag gig or practice...
It's my outlet for negative vibes hahaha!

Being guitarist for me is playing without expecting.
You stand there and let it all out. Let the other folks listen to your music.

Doesn't matter what they say about it, as long as you'll be able to do what you want to do.
Thats the real essence of it.

Playing without expecting...

We all have 24 hours to spend everyday.
If we miss the other "OPPORTUNITIES", its our choice.
The money we spent in our gears instead of being fun and hang out with our friends, its our choice.
About frustrations and doubts if we succeed and really become a better guitarist. its our choice to take and enjoy that risk.
How many of us find a difficulty in anything? Walang madali.
Isn't it enough that you study your chords and scales? May kasabihan, kpag nakuntento ka. . hanggang dun ka nlang.

We all got tons of problems and frustrations other than our musicianship.
How about the hardships of transportation when jamming every week.
How about each and every hassle life may bring us?
Well, if you can't handle it stop being musician.

@TS, If you want to quit, then quit.

Don't use law of attraction for negative things.
Sa mga aware sa psychology, kaya nila depensahan sarili nila like me.
Eh pano ung mga hindi? bka may mga beginner na mkabasa ng thread mo hindi na ituloy pagiging musician.
Wag kna manghawa ng negative vibes kung naffrustrate ka.

It's always a frustrating experience if you're a guitar player....you  hear something / someone play good, magseselos ka dahil sasabihin mo sa sarili mo :

''Ang galing galing niya, antagal ko na nag gigitara, ganito pa lang ang level ko'' or ''Paano niya kaya natutunan yun?''  or  ''Paano naman yan napasali sa banda eh di hamak na mas magaling ako sa kanya''   etc  etc etc

Sometimes ''Jealousy/ Envy'' can be a motivating factor, and more often than not, it may well lead you to being a pessimist, causing you to give up your playing.

With all the wealth of information these days, like YouTube and JellyNote, Wala ng rason para hindi ka matuto....kung wala kang pambili ng amp at pambayad ng recording studio, bili lang ng Audio interface....kung wala kang guitar effects, bassist at drummer..Andyan ang Computer mo

Napakadali ng matuto ngayon, unlike before anghirap kumuha ng materials at ka-banda........Swerte nga kayo mga bata dahil ngayon kayo pinanganak Hahaha...nung kapanahunan ko anghirap talaga  :eek: :-D :)

just stop doing anything that is not making you happy.

if sawang-sawa ka na sa kaka-noodle with chords and scales sa gitara mo, stop doing it. gawin mo na lang uli if na miss mo na.
if sawang-sawa ka na magpuyat, makipag-sosyalan, mag buhat ng gamit papuntang gig, edi cancel muna yung gig. if its a paid gig, saying pera...pero if youre doing it for the "art" or "passion"...or in other words: "for free", tapos sawang-sawa ka na...cancel that damn gig.

 Hanggang may nakikita  na pwde aralin sa guitar,( Technique,scales) yun siguro ang makakapag motivate sa akin matuto. tama sila na pag na nag sasawa ka na, pahinga muna, mahirap tumugtog pag napipilitan lang, lalabas at lalabas siguro sa itsura mo habang tumutugtog or sa sound mo na napipilitan ka na lang.

Have you guys experienced this?

Backing tracks, electric guitar with effects, and recorder yung setup ko. Ako yung vocalist at the same time, lead guitarist. Yung backing tracks ko ginagawa ko. Hindi naman ako pro, in fact, libangan lang namin yung tumugtog. Pero sinisikap kong maging malinis yung output na maipo-produce ko.

So, ito na yun. One evening, my ninong asked me to play for his visitors. Tumugon naman ako, for free. Ninong ko naman yun at madalas din ako makahingi ng favors sa kanila. Same setup. Nagustuhan ng mga bisita niya kasi bago sa pandinig nila yung setup ko. Yung line-up ng songs ko, 50's - latest songs pero favorite ko ang Beatles, Bon Jovi, Eagles, saka Bryan Adams. May 60 tracks ata yung tinugtog ko dun for 3 hours straight.

After some time, yung anak ni ninong sinabi sa akin na isa daw sa mga bisita nila noong tumugtog ako eh gusto ako arkilahin sa birthday party. Sabi ko, may pasok kasi ako sa school ng Monday 7 am klase ko. Sunday kasi yung party. Sabi ko, pwede ako tumugtog ng hanggang 7 pm. Tinanong ako kung magkano raw ang singil ko. Sabi ko eh 600 pesos para sa 4 hours straight na tugtugan. Kung gusto ng full band may kokontakin akong mga kaibigan ko ang presyuhan, 500 pesos per member tatlong oras na tugtog. Sabi sa akin sasabihan na lang ako. May ilang araw na wala pa ding update. Sabi ng dad ko huwag ko na raw kulitin yung tao. Ang tingin ko, namamahalan sa presyo. Tapos nagtext sa kin kahapon yung anak ni ninong cancel daw yung tugtog. Uupa na lang ng videoke.

Ano sa tingin nyo? Tama hinuha ko di ba? Mas makakamura sila sa videoke kaysa umupa ng musikero kaya dun pa lang sa sinabing uupa na lang ng videoke alam ko na agad. Sa akin naman wala namang problema kung ayaw nila kasi mahal yung singil ko sa serbisyo ko pero hindi kasi pwedeng mas mababa dun eh. Pagod, pamasahe, preparasyon, at kung minsan nasisiraan pa ng gamit eh. Yung kaibigan ko na beteranong musician sa abroad 500 pinakamababang singil nya sa loob ng 3 hours na tugtog same setup ng sa kin kapag local gigs. May vocalist pa sya bale 1k silang dalawa. Saka di ko naman focus 100% yung music, medyo focus ako sa studies. Kung may gusto umupa sa akin at handang magbayad eh di thank you. Pero di naman pwedeng little or none at all yung payment sa serbisyo ko. Hindi man ako professional pinipilit kong magtunog pro para walang masabi yung mga makikinig ng output ko.

Wala lang. Gusto ko lang i-share. Sa tingin ko kasi kung yung mga walang alam sa buhay musikero sasabihan ako ng ANG MAHAL MO KASI MANINGIL. Pero kayo ba bilang mga musikero, ano ba dapat ang maging batayan sa presyuhan ng gig? Passion ko ang pagtugtog pero kung gusto nila malibang tapos hindi makatarungan yung offer, why would I play for them? Sabihin na nilang may yabang itong sinasabi ko pero kayo ba papayag na magpapagod at mamamasahe kayo tapos lugi o kaya TY lang bayad?
