Hey there, struggling musician. Chin up. I know it's hard to make it out there as a musician. I know there's plenty of competition, and lots of other players who are as good as or better than you. Yes, it can be hard to get gigs, to get fans, to be heard, to stand out in the crowd. But I'm here with some encouragement, with a positive message to motivate you. Because, no matter how hard you try with no results, no matter how badly you feel you are failing, no matter WHAT you do—you will always be better than these guys.
End Hits: All the numbness in the world will never make that performance comfortable.
