My favorite band is Jim's Big Ego. I highly recommend you check them out! http://www.bigego.com I wish I could play like them. That would be cool to play like that, with a band. But, I would never be able to. That's what I want to do if I could play like that and I was in a band in the future. I am horrible at writing bass lines and lyrics. I now have so much respect for all the people who who can do this (The Beatles, Choking Ahogo, Jim's Big Ego, etc. Just to name a few). How can I be able to write music as beautiful and brilliant as Jim's Big Ego or Choking Ahogo? Not being able to write at all, kind of makes me feel like just stop playing music, and just respecting those who make it. But I've been playing since 5th grade (around five years ago) and I enjoy/love playing music. I still pretend to sing and play along with my favorite songs. Most of the time, I try to learn how to play the songs. I can't sing at all, so I don't bother trying. Not being able to play with people who have the same goal in music, really doesn't help either. Studying music is very hard and boring work. I'm in 9th grade. So school takes up most of my time and am not able to travel. My goal is to write brilliant music, like Jim's Big Ego and Choking Ahogo. How can I reach this goal? Have a great day!
