Hello my little Mercury …

I have wanted to write to you for so long … I was looking for words and clumsily building expressions, secretly hoping that someday my letter will be published to you on adme.ru and dozens of readers will write “This is so inspiring!”. But then I realized that I really didn’t want this at all. I wanted you to forget what britishwave.ru, adme.ru and just “www” in any form are.

You are already changing the fourth headphones for this month and I don’t blame you at all. You get bored with your homemade “cool riffs” and “like these parties”. Yes, and night hangs in YouTube – this is also okay, even despite the fact that you do not go to school, because you sleep off. Would YouTube be in my youth – I would do that too. By the way, the next time you surf there, be sure to see how Hendrix fuses his guitar. The coolest video, Bellamy (well, the guy from Muse) after him took up the music, while professionally so. You shouldn’t hurt either …

Maybe it’s strange for you to hear it, and you smile so embarrassedly, bow your head and hold out so touchingly: “Well, what the hell are you …”, but the dreamy spills over your body at that time: “Ah, if only!” … Or maybe you offended so you inflate, from under your forehead you look at me and say: “I, in fact,” House Of The Rising Sun “like a king I’ll bang!”, and disappointedly admit to yourself: “I don’t get anything when I NORMAL take up the guitar? ” and your inner voice, all the same, annoyed answers you: “Never …”, but you don’t want to listen to it and you interrupt desperately: “Tomorrow. But probably all the same on Monday. First day. New Year.” And I repeat to you: so surely, never!

Do you know how I expect a reaction from you? I expect that you will turn away from me and run away to another room, or maybe to the other end of the city. And it’s better that you don’t hear or read this phrase at all. It would be better if Queen annoyedly stuck in your head, or there was a hope for picking up the last strings of that firm, oh, that made the sound so cosmic. No one, no one except you will notice this “cosmic” effect, but you know that it exists and now, at 8:40, you rush to the metro to catch the opening of the store. But you don’t hear me. I want you to not need my letter. So that you do not need anything other than how to be in music. Dive into it with your own mouth. And please do not correct this phrase. I know that she is wrong, but I also know that she is incredibly imaginative. After all, have you already felt this?

Music … In general, she is a typical woman. And not because in Russian we will write “zh.” Above her, but because she is like that. Moody, narcissistic, but at the same time ready to give you her youth. She will not love you when you want it. She will love you when you become worthy of her. In general, man, interrupt your efforts to get the little things. The more you squeeze for it and try to do all my best (in which “I’m going to play blood on my fingers because it’s necessary”), the more you will plunge into a mess of groups and records, paper posters and drunk corporate parties, torn strings and friends like “dude, we’ll still light Wembley!” No, you won’t do anything, absolutely. You will not fly to the top of the charts, barely making the first sound, you will not turn into a fairy if you are invited to play a tribute, moreover, a bag of money will not fall on you when you are asked to take a picture for the first time. Your little victories for this global dream are nothing. Because small pictures collected from small puzzles will never form a large picture, this only happens in the fantasies of aunts collecting huge horses and lions. Each of your actions should be verified and clear. Puzzle to puzzle, detail to detail.

“I pull this string because I pulled that one in front of it, and now I pull this string”, – this is how the tablature of your career should be written. Music is a huge strategy. She doesn’t need your sacrifices and bribes, she needs your business plan, where some little things will be taken into account, and even swimming along the stream will go along the course you have set.

Grab it. Open your own business. Make your guitar your desktop, make your laziness your competitor, make your stubbornness your sponsor, and most importantly, make your creativity your work.

How often do we hear the expression “I want to open my own business,” and how often these matters are opened. And why? Because people do business and work – “their own business.” If you think that art does not require such meticulousness, but only gentleness and talent, then you are wrong. Art must become a deed and simply must become “mine.” Get up and leave from behind the screen. You have to do something.
