but wouldn't that just mean that you were succeeding at what you were attempting which negates the original output and transforms it into being 'good' again? hahaha

maybe when you learn the technicalities of playing you lose the love of wild sound in the same way
In music it is a little different, because there are differnt types of listening. Analytical listening and casual listening. Dont worry if you dont know an instrument, but it would be good to know the background of music at least. Piano is something easy to learn. You can do it online and it helps you to understand the ins and outs of music!!

Sure. Didn't we all start out as music lovers before we picked up an instrument?

are people who dont play even worthy of listening?
Absolutely man! People who do not play make the best fans! I'm a musician of 10 years and trust me- All though it's fun and I wouldn't trade it for the world, all it does to you is make you listen to everything from a technical standpointe. Before I played, I could listen to just about anything and enjoy it, now my taste are so limited I have to wait months for albums to drop from the 10 bands I actually like.

Having said that, music is freeing and incredibly fun... while being incredibly frustrating... the indie scene which I reside in is much more fun than the mainstream scene which I've also had a small part in... either way, being a musician is all about the amount of passion you have to do so... just keep in mind, whether you're touring the country or jamming in your basement it will change your life as far as music goes.

You absolutely can be a music lover without knowing how to be a musician. I was. However, after learning to play guitar, my love for music only deepened. :] Also my taste in music did not begin to draw limits - it only expanded.

I find that playing an instrument can make you appreciate some musicians more, but others less. Overall I think its fine not to learn one, but never too late to try....

I agree with this 100%!

I was a big music fan before I picked up the Bass. Now that I have started learning I have a deepening understanding of music. It just enriches it. But anyone can love music!
