8 ways not to succeed in music
Unfortunately, I've been following a few of these rules, but in the next year I hope to break more of them:
1. Stop writing new songs.
2. Stop learning and improving your technique.
3. Don't work with other musicians.
4. Don't make demos.
5. Don't try to publish and elicit interest in your demos.
6. Don't perform for people.
7. Don't listen to other artists, study their techniques, or learn who is popular.
8. Don't attend live concerts.
