Hi, Dr. Melk here. Do you like thematic/layered music? Do you need relaxing songs that aren’t boring?https://open.spotify.com/playlist/6pNshdLjQRrcHLUAw9phRU?si=D16QZ8RlRde2gw6KfLTC4w
Those are some orchestra/classical. I haven’t taken a class in Symphonies so I don’t know what the experts say about it. I just go by what I find and what sounds the best.
My favorite thing to do was go to the library or book store/cafe and wander around. Before you could just download/stream whatever you want basically.
All my playlists are a culmination of that. Still looking for more! The algorithms are good now. With Your Help. Thanks World.
Don’t even talk to me unless you have a paper bag full of song recommendations. I’m a fiend! Just kidding.
It’s good to learn how to play an instrument too…if you like music a lot. I started that when I was 9 or so. Now I’m mid 30s. Verdict: worth sticking with it.
My favorite thing now is acoustic instruments. Trying to get the best tone possible. And notes. Harmony and rhythms.
The sound quality is way different in person. On an instrument. It’s like 4K image of a forest. Compared to an etch a sketch drawing, of a tree, by a two year old. That’s how much better it sounds.
If you know how to play it well. There’s a lot of layers! And micro decisions. So you practice and get familiar with all of that. And then eventually you don’t even have to think about it. Can just enjoy it as it happens. It’s like magic!
The more styles of instrument you learn, the better. I think. Like I played some wind/brass instruments, plucked/guitars, percussion. Drums are small and inexpensive. Taking some musical drum lessons on a hand drum.
It’s a good outlet. You can just make sounds and react to them. It’s like a mirror in a way. Any hobby is, probably. Just find something and get really good at it.
I like to be polite tho. And not annoy my neighbors with my music. Since they didn’t ask me to play or anything.
It feels different anyway if there’s ambiguous people who may or may not be listening. Compared to having a sealed-off lab.
Can learn about taking risks and trying new ways of doing things. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Collecting all of those times it did work. And knowing what not to waste time on after.
Doesn’t have to be work-related either. I had jobs that weren’t my first choice, for a long time. That doesn’t mean you can’t be fulfilled as a person.
Alright, thanks for your audience-ness. I find that writing helps me get clarity. The more I learn and experience. There’s just so much!
You know how people will whiteboard complicated problems. Making physical representations of their plan. And their understanding of it. I wonder why they bother with that………
Vision boards are run. Less constrained than writing.

Have been playing Deep Rock Galactic also. Might enjoy it if you like gathering/building/exploring/aiming. Solo is exciting. Looks nice
