Hey guys I've always had a lot of self-criticism to pretty much everything i do, but i never felt like it stopped my "creative flow". Writing music and coming up with ideas for songs used to come pretty easy... or it kinda still does. The problem is, as of late i pretty much think it's all a festering pile of suckage. The last two years, all the music i've made, i only think three of my bands songs are good, and it's pretty crushing knowing that my musical output only ended up in three songs... Every new idea i've had the last couple of months have all been horrible or i've played something and thought it was the coolest thing i've ever made only to realize i, without knowing, copied a song. I've just quit my job to focus on music and getting out and playing live, so i've just had a period where i've been focused on work (selling guitars ironicaly) and didn't play guitar that much. I'm extremely frustrated whenever i play any instrument, especially guitar. I can't play for very long at the time before i get furious at myself and i have to put everything down and just chill... and i've never been an angry person, never had anger problems. It feels like my drums just go out of tune all the time, the snare pops off, my bass is always muddy and i my guitars are just harsh and brittle... even after tweaking the s*** out of them. I'm just lacking the fun and it seems like i can't enjoy making music or just playing for the matter. There's nothing i'd love more than to put all my bands gear in a van and we'd just drive around all of europe, or go to the states and just play gigs, but i guess that's the difference between a basement warrior and an artist I'd like to know, what do you guys do with your self-criticism?
