what is my sound?

Sat, Jun 1, 2013 at 3:21 PM By: Figure09

i don't know, but lately i've been second guessing what i want to be when i grow up, i want to be an engineer, but i find myself daydreaming a lot about being up on stage playing guitar and singing to a crowd of people.

I even tell my friends, "If i get into music when im older... I want a particular sound that i can call mine." i want a sound that couldn't even be classified as a genre. I wanna let people know about what's REALLY going on in the world around them. no sappy love songs or upbeat party songs... im talkin real shit.

I wanna teach my audience what linkin park, korn, nine inch nails, and marilyn manson has taught me. if it weren't for them... i would know nothing. i would be into the one direction and justin beiber bullshit.

I look at the tv screen sometimes and think. "all these lady singers sound the same... The hip-hop beats are the same, overused and generic. pop music sounds the same. none of today's music is art... its just made for entertainment and for a quick buck. rap doesn't even have a meaning anymore. what happened to the " super nintendo, sega genisis, when i was dead broke, man i couldn't picture this" now it's "fuck bitches, get money" to sum it all up.

Back to the lady singers... me, im not one to sing at a high note. i suck at it. but that's a good thing... it's taught me how much better i am singin at a low note. i need more practice, yes but im getting there. singing songs by guys teaches me low notes (especially jon, he is especially a challenge for me to sing at). I would want people to hear my voice on the radio and definitely know it is me. not have a million guesses like the rest of the female vocalists. i want people to hear me on the radio and ask "now, who was THAT?"

For my music, i would mix elements of my favorite bands' music but that would not be my sound. i want people to know who inspired it. but the overall sound would be my own. i just don't know what that would be though...

    I am the same way, nothing sounds original anymore, and if I could sing I would probably do the same thing you want to do! I hope your dream comes true, and when it does I hope you open everyone's eyes to the truth!

    You gotta do some maj. soul searching, no soul RIPPIN, and you gotta get down to way inside you and figure what you're about and you may be about alot of things (which also may change over time), and then, there's your sound. After some choppy times, it flows. But you gotta appreciate the trip while you're on it.

    You couldn't of put that any better! Can you play the guitar? That is the best feeling in the world, When your mates call & you can say "Check this out" That is the 1st thing you want to have a go at!(if you don't already). Let us hope you do some thing of your own and we can say, the same. Good luck any way dude.=)
