You know, it's been really getting to me to see all these videos and such that have some sort of message like "learn guitar fast" or "teach yourself how to play bass like a pro in X number of lessons." I find things like that very insulting to musicians. The message it sends is that musicians' skills aren't the result of lots of work and practice, it's just some "trick" you can learn. They're always saying things like finding out the trick or the secret behind something, like music is some big magic trick that will be simple once you're in on it. This kind of stuff has been talked about a lot, I know, but it's just getting out of hand. I've recently been trying to learn to play the piano, and I really want to learn to play like a legit player, and I do plan on lessons when I have the time. For now, just poking around on the net, most of what I run into is this "piano made simple" kind of stuff. That undermines all the great piano players out there. It's like advertising "how to be smart without thinking." But I guess as long as human beings act like human beings and seek out the shortest and easiest path that's the stuff that will sell. I just don't think it's good at all for how the world of music is regarded.
