I remember the week after having Bobby Brackins on the Bud and Roach Show, we brought on Guitaro 5000 for a phone interview. Guitaro was someone I had performed with previously during my New York City run with Morning View. He had a unique approach to playing the guitar and singing that was mesmerizing to watch. I was excited to have him on the show and couldn’t wait to hear what he had to say. As we started the interview, Guitaro spoke about his musical influences and how he got started playing the guitar. He talked about his love for jazz and how he incorporates it into his music. I was fascinated by his approach to music and how he had created his own style by combining different genres. But as the interview went on, I couldn’t help but feel a sense of envy towards Guitaro’s success. He had been able to make a name for himself, while I was still struggling to get my foot in the door. I was angry with myself for not being able to achieve the same level of success and frustrated with the constant grind of trying to make it in the industry. But as I sat there, beer in hand listening to Guitaro speak, I realized that I needed to change my perspective. After the interview, I sat down with Brenna and talked about how I was feeling. She reminded me of all the things I had accomplished in my life and how far I had come. She encouraged me to keep pushing forward and to never give up on my dreams. But my dreams were growing, fast, and with an expanding skill set, I could conquer anything. I just had to get over myself.
