I sometimes wonder what I'd do if I were the last living human on earth, or stranded somewhere with only my guitar and maybe a digital keyboard...Would I still love music as much? Would I still have aspirations of performing well? With these things I'd have some goal, some sense of direction, and maybe some reason to go on. Without them things might seem pretty bleak.Some well-known writer once remarked that if he could play music he would have done nothing else in his life. As Kristofferson said "You gotta do it because you love it."Sometimes people ask questions on these boards because they don't have anyone else to ask. One of the great things about music is that it's something you can do in isolation - even if you don't share that love with others you know, or live in a place with ready access to other musicians.Not all of us can afford to pay for expensive lessons. Not all of us live in large cosmopolitan centers that attract most musicians.I once asked a keyboard instructor why there isn't more emphasis on classical music. She told me there's no money in it. Of course, many, even most aspiring musicians want to perform professionally, but that fact shouldn't obscure the fact that some of us, at least, aspire to making music for the sheer enjoyment of the process.
