(#) ohheyitsscissortime 2012-11-01 08:00:33 PMMy motto is "fuck the haters, fuck the critics, and fuck anyone who says you can't do it" and it applies here. AJ, I know you don't know me other than for my fics, and I don't know you personally, but if it's what you want, than go for it. Don't make the same mistake I did. I wanted to be in a rock band too once upon a time, but I let the haters drag me down and now I've got a boring-ass job, and I want out, but I can't. Don't make that mistake, AJ. Believe in yourself, like I believe in you.
Author's responseThat touched me in here -points to crouch-
Here -points to heart-
It's very comforting to know that someone believes in me. It's a big help.
I get really nervous and worried all the time, but knowing that someone believes in me makes me want to try harder.
I can't guarantee that I'll succeed, but I can guarantee that I won't stop trying. Thanks :)
- ^^^ what she said, because she said it fucking awesome
AJ, don't let anything or anyone discourage you. If it's something you're really passionate about, then I know that you'll make it work.
Also, I am in the process of learning how to not suck at guitar. So I totally will try out for the band. And I can sing backup. (Darling, I am sure that your voice is lovely. It's definitely better than mine, don't worry.)
The thing about writing songs, is that I feel like it should start with lyrics. There are exceptions to that in my opinion, but yeah, I think that if you have the lyrics, and you can put it to a melody, you can build a song from there. (Okay I'm not an expert, and this is just my two crappy cents.)
Good luck. I know you'll be great.
Author's responseIt was awesome :)
Haha I would love to have you in the band
We'll harmonize like Gerard and Ray :)
Thats a pretty great two cents :)
Thanks so much. I feel a bit better. I tend to panic! And worry a lot. (SAW WHAT I DID THERE)
Thanks so so much

Gerard, Bob is allowed sass for once!
Thanks so much :D
- This is what I have to say:
I personally have the same problem when I comes to writing songs when composing. But I know you will compose an amazing song.
Screw anyone who hates your music, love those who love it. I have a feeling you will produce awesome music.
If you think your songs are rubbish don't think that, If they mean something that's all that matters. When I write a song I make the lyrics mean something to me, if anyone else thinks they're crap I won't give a shit cause the lyrics mean something to me.
I've been trying to self teach myself guitar really badly but one day I'll be good so you can hire me and I can kinda play keyboard as well.
I'll tell you something, I want to be in a band for one reason, I wanna be famous cause I wanna prove to all the bitches that have put me down in my life I am not worthless, I can do something and music is my life, and I am not gonna let anyone take that away from me.
So that's what I have to say, if you meet Mikey Way in the future set him up with me =)
Author's responseThanks so much for saying that about me.
Maybe I will end up hiring you!
Me too. I want to do exactly that. Prove everyone wrong, and also give kids someone awesome to look up to.
If you're in a different band than me, and you meet Bob Bryar, set him up with me XD

cue inspirational music
I know how you feel. Yanno, dreaming something big and fearing for the worst. But you can do it AJ. I know you can. Look at you! You're already writing songs, getting a guitar, and most of all you want to do it. It's obvious you can do this.
Because I know you can make it, you can't ever give up. Don't settle for some shitty office job. Don't let your dreams go to waste. I believe in you, AJ. You can't give up. If not for yourself, then for me, for the kids here on ficwad, and for all the kids out there who need someone. Stay strong, my little rockstar. I can't wait to hear your band one day.
Author's responseI really do want to.
I won't give up! Much less settle for an office job. You're right. I should keep trying, for all of the kids like us.
I can't wait to see you in the crowd one day.
Thanks so much :D
(#) electricviolence 2012-11-08 11:58:34 AMI told my parents that when I move away to Art School, I'm going to start a band... and they laughed at me. ; . ;
My parents want me to be a doctor. Hahaha, could you really see me poking at people with various sharp objects? Yeah, that sounds like a GREAT idea!
Author's responseME TOO I TOLD MY MOM THAT TOO
She wants me to be a lawyer.
SCREAMING AT OTHERS
(#) Obsessive-Fangirl 2012-11-12 06:04:53 PMAJ, I don't know you very well (However, I'd like to get to know you :D), but I do have a few words of advice.
/One: I don't know where to start/ Unfortunately, I can't help you out, except for saying look around.
/Two: I don't know people who know guitar really well./ Well, I know guitar (and apparently I'm pretty good :P), but since we live on opposite sides of the world, I can't help you there. Once again, I'd say look around.
/Three: I can't compose music. I can only write lyrics and think of a tune./ This depends on what kind of computer you have. If you have a Macbook (or, by further extension, any Apple products), you could always purchase a program called GarageBand (if you don't have it already :P). Once you do that, you can play around with that, make some loops, stuff like that (I do it a lot). By doing that, you can make some pretty amazing shit.
If you don't have a Macbook, well, unfortunately I can't help you.
/Four: I don't know people who know the drums really well./ I have a friend who is like, the female, non-famous Spencer Smith/Bob Bryar/etc. I could ship her over to you if you want XD Just kidding, once again, I'd say look around.
/Five: I doubt anyone wants a chick in their band./ You'd be surprised, AJ. Lots of guys in bands look for women to be their lead singers. If that doesn't work, there's always the girl group option.
/Six: I'm really self concious about singing, since whenever I sing in my house, my brothers say I'm really bad and I should shut up./ Your brothers are just being, well, brothers. You should ignore them. I ignore my sister when she says I'm a bad singer, and you should do the same with your brothers.
/Seven: I would sing in public, in crowds, but my brothers made me so self concious./ See above.
/Eight: I think my songs suck./ They don't suck, AJ. A song does not suck unless:
A: It doesn't come from the heart, or:
B: The person who wrote it thinks it sucks.
In other words, your songs will only suck if you think they suck. Your songs already come from that heart from what I've gathered, don't make them suck by saying they suck.
/Nine: I don't wanna let myself down. That girl with dreams who failed and became ________________insert boring career here ________/ It sounds cliche, but just believing in your dreams will make them come true, regardless of what others say. You see, my parents (or at least, my mother) wants me to be a doctor or a psychologist. Do you think that's stopping me from following my true passion, acting/singing? The answer is no, and you should do the same.
/Ten: I really want to be it, but all of the above./ See all my above advice.
AJ, what I'm trying to say is do whatever you want, and don't let others tell you what to do.
Author's responseI'd like to get to know you, too :)
I'm so glad you took time to type this up :D
Your advice really helped me gain a bit of confidence today, and I'm very grateful
Thanks so so much, Liz :)
