I know loads of you people make and do music amazingly, which is great, and I can’t hold a candle to that and I’m jealous.
Music is my number one passion (apart from my kids, maybe) and has been since I was 15 (before I had kids, to be clear) but I can’t play an instrument, can’t distinguish a chord change from a key change, don’t know why Lars or Ringo are particularly bad drummers, can just about spot a change from a major to a minor key.
But I love music. Anyone in the same boat?
(I also love films but couldn’t direct one (although can see when they’re badly directed so I can wank on about it in the pub) and can criticise art albeit I haven’t painted for 20 years. And don’t get me started on architecture)
Is my love of music invalidated by my not knowing the basics of it?
No. I think.
