What do you think is the hardest part of creating music? What barriers do you think a person has to get past before they have there own sound? Thanks!
I think a lot of people set out to conform to the rules of whatever musical genre they feel they'd like to fit in with and end up making music which just restates ideas which have been expressed a hundred times before.
It is very tempting to try to fit in with an established musical fashion but the flip side of that is that once you're there it is immensely difficult to stand out.
