I have only been singing seriously for just over 5 years. I love singing, and sing live Karaoke most every weekend. Nothing like hearing real applause after singing a song for a live audience. I have also recently taken up playing the drums again. I used to play them in Middle school and High school ( A few years ago..LOL), and played in marching bands for parades.

Playing a full drum set is nothing like playing a single drum in a marching band, so I am learning all over again. I sing and play the drums, not for the glory, but for my soul, and for the soul of those who choose to listen, although many on here do not seem appreciate musicians who use this site to improve their musical skills. No matter, because I play to improve my drumming skills, and although I enjoy singing very much as well, it makes it so much easier to learn to play a song on the drums without the vocals to distract from the musical track, as drum sheet music is so very hard to find, and 90% of drummers play by ear anyway.

Most people on here don't appreciate musicians, especially drummers, because in most peoples eyes, they are only just beat keepers. But playing drums takes concentration and dexterity, and the ability to do four different things with your arms and feet that are not really in sync with each other....... AT THE SAME TIME !!!!

The aspects of this site have changed drastically since I joined in January 2010. I remember when most everyone seemed excited about everyone else's songs, and listening was as important to them as singing. Now it seems everyone is all about gaining accolades for themselves, and really do not care enough about anyone else to comment or try and help them improve their experience here. I can't count how many people (ROOKIES) I helped get their settings correct, or to suggest a decent microphone that they may want to try, or to assist them in how to mix their songs properly.

Now, it seems that there is a different air about this site, and if you do not belong to a certain circle of friends, no one even pays any attention to you, no matter how great your songs are, or how nice your sound mix may be. I find it ironic that I can go to many different Karaoke bars in my city, and sing a killer version of a song, and 30 to 50 people may decide to applaud, but when I do a song on here, no matter how well it turned out, very few even take the time to comment.

It seems as if they expect you to come to them and comment first on them. It amazes me that (MATURE ADULTS?) can't deal with anything negative when they try to teach their children to the very same thing. I never claim that my songs are great, but I have learned how to mix, and how to pay attention to another singer that I may choose to join in a song, so that neither one of us will be embarrassed by the outcome.

I always go by a simple rule on commenting, and that is if I view one of your songs, I will comment. I also will not be a hypocrite and praise you if the song was not good. No one benefits from blind praise if they are trying to improve something they like to do, and you do not take the time or effort to try and help them. I may tell you that your song is one I enjoy from the past if it was not good, instead of saying "Oh my, what a wonderful job you did here".

We live in a society today where simply participating seems to be worthy of praise, when only a single person gave 100%, and that person in my day was the obvious winner worth of praise, but the rest now get a "TROPHY TOO", just for being there, no matter if they gave 100% or not.

The person you took for granted today, may turn out to be the person you need tomorrow. Be careful how you treat others. You never know when you may need them.

Some people aren't loyal to you. they are loyal to their need of you. Once their needs change, so does their loyalty !!!

Music penetrates social, economic, and Racial barriers. It is a universal language, even if you don't know the actual "Language" of a song.

I love singing and playing the drums, and one day I may be good at both if I keep practicing on here.

CLick here for a link to a singing video I did about Cell Phones on you tube in the style of Kodachrome by Paul Simon. It fits the times, and is called "MY 10G SMART PHONE"
