Music Industries are having their heydays in this millennium. Talents can be discovered just by viewing uploaded music video covers of famous singing stars singles or groups in Youtube. No need for auditions and trial and error career launch. The hopeful singing sensations also are having their easy times with their career explorations. What are needed are guts, recording studio free/minimal pay and band instruments. Most of them even invented their own kind and variety of band instruments. Last but the most important are creativity and talent.
A group of young teenagers aged 13 to 16 years old from my son’s high school were really keen of making their own covers of the band they idolized. Most of the mock up videos were taken not in music studios but from anywhere that took their fancy. Lying around at the lawn in front of the school was the setting for no 1 music video. Number 2 was taken while the group was sitting amidst the splashing waves and on the rocks strewn over by the defunct barge dock. No 3 was shot while they were eating lunch out at the food stalls lining the food court of our local market. Only an electric guitar was needed to make the videos presentable. The group gripes about the electric guitar for hours on end. Some of them even Googled the best model that was ever released and decided on a LES PAUL. Side trips were taken during week end movie trips to the city to view a LES PAUL electric guitar on sale at the nearest musical instrument store. It has already been a year and yet the most wished for electric guitar is still in the wish list and was never ever taken down just even once.
