To be successful in being a DIY musician you must be succesful at “DIY” and at “musicianship” these two concepts are at constant odds with each other. Constantly fighting for your time and attention.
First let me define what I mean by being a DIY Musician. The goal for me is multi faceted.
- Create quality music
- Build a following
- Make music make money
- Enjoy myself
Problem is with all the time spent DIY there is little time left to create.
I guess the fun is in the journey
