Default What is something that you struggle with most as a music artist?

The biggest problem i've heard so far is marketing. Just curious to know what other artist are encountering that is a painful problem to them. Thanks for your answers!

I can relate. I haven't played while sober in years.

I "suffer" (blessed with?) from Musical auditory hallucinations. I find it difficult to cope with and the only thing that helps to quiet down the noise (music) is either drinking or transcribing what I'm hearing. Unfortunately, I ended up combining the two and it's been a tough journey.

What happens if you play sober? How does your music change?

It gets better. My timing gets tighter, my phrasing is more coherent, and I take more risks when my senses aren't dulled from alcohol. Also, I'll usually get lazy or impatient during mixing when I'm buzzed, so that suffers too.

I think I'd put "flakey musicians" as #1. Things would be so much easier if people were focused, committed, even-keeled, team-oriented, positive-minded, dependable/responsible, with no substance abuse problems, no neuroses and mental breakdowns or freakouts, etc.
