wot is the distance between newbie and yoda?
well.. apparently, for internet musicians.. it's only 5 years.. or even less..
I started out as an ignorant little musician newbie, back in 97..
and for the next year or 2.. I wuz sending all sorts of stupid e-mails to more expert musicians, "veterans", "scene legends", or wot'ever the hell they called themselves.. asking them all these annoying questions about technique and stuff..
I wuz a pesky little vermin.. and all in all, due to my newbie'ness.. felt more or less unworthy of their glowing know-it-all yoda-like presence..
who wuz I.. tiny tiny ignorant insect.. to demand to ask the wisdom of them, giant crushing godzillas of music.. who could smash me with their huge clunkin' fists?
now wot I find ironic..
is, before I knew it..
the worm had turned on me..
apparently, now I'm the grand poo-bah of internet music..
and I'm gettin' all these crazy newbies asking me idiotic questions over the most BASIC of techniques.. I dont know how the hell they find my e-mail address.. but they come in droves.. looking for my wisdom.. hoping I would take mercy on them.. and not crush them like the tiny tiny insects they are..
how the hell did I get here so quickly?
I'm still a newbie.. right?
but.. after 5 years.. all of a sudden I'm an expert?
