Hi there Jack
And just as Jacko has done, I’d like to welcome you to Beyond Blue and to thank you for coming here and providing your post.
Jacko has provided you with some really awesome advice in his response to you and actually it’s some advice that I will work hard on trying for myself – the part about where you look and watch other people who interact with you. For me, it’s not so much strangers, but people who then and there, right in front of me or who are part of a group that I’m with and you can’t help but look, watch and analyse. And for me, I’m like you Jack – it’s not a good thing, but Jacko has given some good advice there.
May I ask with regard to your music, what kind of genre do you either play or enjoy?
Are you a solo performer or are you in amongst a band that you’ve got going and what is your weapon of choice?
My son, also 17 is heavily into music also – and his comment on his weapon of choice is that “he hits things with sticks” – ie: a drummer and he’s going from strength to strength with it. He really loves the metal scene and the heavier, the better and those ‘growling’ kind of lead singers – um, I use the term singers very unwisely there; so you can tell, that’s not my particular variety to listen too.
But we support him with it and he’s got a couple of groups happening at the moment – one for a school production that they’re doing and another external to school and they’re working on some kind EP, LP or CD, I’m not quite sure, but there’s a lot of work going into it.
Also, is your family supportive of your musical aspirations? I would imagine so, considering of the school that you’re attending.
Would love to hear back from you.
