There's a generally unknown fact about musicians. The best way to learn about this fact is to become one. Since it takes a lot of effort and years of dedication to get to that stage however I'll just give you the cliff-notes.
Primarily if you want to be good at something, you'll have to be consistently practicing it.
If you answered everyone you may be right however the answer I'm looking for, is the artist themselves.
Not to mention then reinventing the song for live performances each with it's own unique flair.
In an earlier blog post, I mentioned the time I eavesdropped on Calgary's own Secret Broadcast while waiting around the rehearsal factory. For over an hour I heard Raygun being played.
Now I don't know about you guys, but I've been playing the same tunes for a very long while. 2 of our tracks are over 2 years old and by god, am I sick of playing them. I can only imagine how exhausted a big name band is with it. In hindsight it also makes sense as to why sometimes they recreate the song in a new musical style. It's to prevent monotony.
So in conclusion if you're starting to hate your music, you're doing it right. Hell if we get hecklers, I might even want to hang out with them after the show.
