"The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So, write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can." Neil Gaiman
So many aspiring musical artists are desperately trying to sound like someone else. Furthermore, it takes great courage to sing your own song in public. The other problem is that sometimes the story we sing is not interesting. However, you never know until you give it a go. But remember that musicians we admire really do know what they are doing. So, keep up the music lessons.
You've got to learn your instrument. Then, you practice, practice, practice. And then, when you finally get up there on the bandstand, forget all that and just wail.
