the growth hormone

I’ve often said that in order to continually develop as a musician, you have to act like you’re 20 — curious, but pessimistic.

With that in mind, a gentle reminder:
When I was 15, I used to listen and study music, and try to write something in that style, imitate and learn the language at all costs. I wanted to be better than everybody at whatever the “thing” was.

When I was 20, I used to rebel against pretty much everything.

When I was 27, I finally found a connection to some music which was really “for me” — naturally, it was made by musicians who were acting like they’re 20.

Now that this year I’m turning 30, I’m starting to feel like I have certain strengths, and I should capitalize on them ..

..clearly, I didn’t learn anything…
🙂
