A long time ago, I’ve came to terms with the fact that I am not—nor will I ever be—a musician.

I picked up a guitar at age eleven only to find out that I didn’t much care for learning chords, scales, and reading notes on sheet music. I joined the string orchestra in junior high and learned a little of the basics but I knew the cello was not what I wanted to play. Later on, I started taking guitar classes with my brothers at a workshop where the instructor politely suggested that maybe the bass guitar was more of my style.

A few years after high school, I began playing bass with my brother’s band. You’ve never heard of them. I never thought the songs were very good. It was fun and we had fun playing backyards, bars, and the occasional hall, but I knew it was never going to amount to much.

Since then I’ve become comfortable with being a spectator in the DIY punk scene. Watching bands do their thing live is just as fun as listening to their records at home.

Don’t believe the hype: you actually do need a little bit of talent and know-how to write and perform music. Even in punk and hardcore. Here are a few songs from some talented folks who create the sounds that I will never be able to.
