Pretty much, unless you are Tolkein, then half of your story is song anyway XD.
Yeah, every few years California decides to spontaneously combust. Never had to evac myself, but I was right below the line that did, and I have seen the fires crawl across the mountains right next to us.
I have a really hard time projecting/hearing my own voice with a group, in top of being nervous, so singing with other other people is the worst of both worlds for me XD To be clear, if I am speaking like in a presentation, I can get nervous and my voice will speed up. But between my large family and being raised by a marine, general interactions with a crowd come naturally to me.
It’s kinda fun to play with the sounds and style’s that way, you should try it XD I listen to a lot of different music, EDM, hip-hop/rap, metal (heavy, symphonic, power…), rock (classic, soft, hard, alternative…) classical, jazz, swing/big-band, oldies, folk/world (which includes sea shanties)… Honestly, the only kind of music I don’t like is anything that is too discordant (such as death metal or some of the harder dubstep) or that is simply too crass (which, unfortunately includes a lot of rap). If you give me an example of what song you listen to, I can <i>probably</i> tell you its genre, lol.
Hey, that is super exciting! Congratulations! And it is ok to take your time, especially in this stage.
There have been a lot of projects I have dropped and haven’t finished, but they all still improved and developed my own skill along the way.
