Once Upon a Time: Recording Rediscovered

I’ve always been enamored with the idea of being able to record and produce music.

I remember that in middle school, I discovered that there was an entire community of rising musicians making their base on YouTube.

Because of this, I was going through my archives today and trying to see how much damage my previous posts may have suffered after the big shift. Along the way, I was reading some of the material, because I legitimately do not remember writing about half of what’s there. (oops)

And while reading, a little part of me is proud that I was actually able to put together that much content back then, but a larger part of me is just going “WHYYYYY???!?!?!?!?!!!”
