    I have too much passion and not enough skill (And it stops me making music)

    Hi guys,

    I've come to you with a dilemma; as the title suggests - I've got so much passion for music and writing music and not enough skill to turn it into art. I know that the simple answer here is to practice more, but I wondered if anyone else had ever faced a similar problem.

    Basically, I love music - it's always been a saviour for me. Like many of us, music has (literally) saved my life and got me through unbelievably tough times. When I had nobody, when nobody could help me - music was there for me. Now I feel like I'm in a place mentally where I'm tired of how things are, in my life, in society, in the things I see and experience and there is no voice for me, music just isn't there this time. I'm not a teenager anymore, so I guess this is my time to be a voice for others like me, but I'm having trouble:

    I want to express this with music but I'm just not good enough, I get so emotionally worked up when I go to make music. I don't want to 'practice', I want to make *that* song, or capture *that* feeling. But nothing happens, I get my keyboard out, ready the guitars and open up my music software and it just doesn't happen. I don't think it's as much an inspiration problem, just a problem that I can't get my music to really voice my emotion - no matter what instrument I try. It's like being choked up or gagged while screaming to be heard, it's like having something incredibly important to say in a country where nobody understands you.

    Does anyone have any advice or input?

    Practice is important and it will help you get better, but it can also be pretty frustrating and make you lose a lot of creativity. Just start writing songs with your current skill level. The technique will come. A good song is a good song regardless how simplistic it is. You can always go back and add more to a basic song. The point is to work on your skills while you are expressing your creativity. Your skills will naturally improve.
