I guess, because of this, I never really understood why the majority of "guitar players" I've known play strictly other people's music. And all the cliche' songs, too.
When someone busts out a guitar and starts playing Enter Sandman, you can just walk away and not feel like you're going to miss out on anything special.

I guess there's some merit to learning guitar by using other people's tabs and all, but personally, I enjoyed picking up the guitar with no instruction and just doing everything by ear and by heart. Give it long enough, you develop your own style, songs and even if your technique isn't standard protocol, you still have something good and something you can call your own.
People play other peoples songs because to a lot of people music is about playing to an audience.

And a lot of the time, the audience wants what they know. Nothing wrong with that. Disregarding your audience is the building block of self-indulgent wank, and while that has an audience in and of itself, its not a wide audience.

"Your guitar is a divining rod, use it to find spirits in the other world and bring them over. A guitar is also a fishing rod, if you're good, you'll land a big one."

"Old delta blues players referred to amplifiers as 'the devil box', and they were right. You have to be an equal opportunity employer in terms of who you're bringing over from the other side. Electricity attracts devils and demons. Other instruments attract other spirits. An acoustic guitar attracts Caspar the ghost, a mandolin attracts Wendy, but an electric guitar attracts Beelzebub."

"If your brain is part of the process, you're missing it. You should play like a drowning man, struggling to reach shore. If you can trap that feeling, then you have something that is fur bearing."

"Don't wipe the sweat off your instrument. You need that stink on there, then you have to get that stink onto your music."

All quotes by the late, great, Don Van Vliet (Captain Beefheart)

i do have a quasi-mystical, quasi-religious approach to playing as well

i believe you need to meditate to grasp notes and chords from some Universal musical force flowing in the ether

To be honest Im not sure really sure if your right about that :O not that having a niche audience is bad or good but I never really thought about the song I showed you was wierd or strange I thought it was kind of poppy actually. I unno you guys hear it.

I do have some weirder things on my youtube channel but nothing crazy or anything.
