All Beliefs are Welcome Here!
Opinions from a Musician
Lots of things.
First we have to define what a musician is. Sad but true.
A musician is someone that plays music. Someone that knows an instrument and can play an instrument.
Not a singer nor someone else that has any relationship to music. A musician does just that. Makes music, in the area that they make it themselves. Plays some instrument.
There is leeway in the fact you Can say you are in music. As a singer, etc
The musician plays music and can play an instrument.
Now we jump to people that claim to be musicians and others that claim to have talent when they cannot tell you the difference between Keys and guitar. We jump to the modern idea of music.
Lets look at Dj's first. They spin music. They use everyone else's music. They add style and personality to music. But, not musicians. They play nothing original. Without musicians and music, they have nothing.
Remix artists: They take everyone else's music and put it together. Again, not musicians, not artists. No talent there.
Well, there is some talent there, in both DJ's and remixers, but my point is, if they can't make the music, they have no right pretending they have talent. Its an insult to every musician that ever laid down a track.
Lots of Rap artists do the same thing. Use other people's shit and talk over it. Most of the time they don't even get permission first.
Most real musicians I know would not give that permission.
Not to the crap people are cutting now
