I swear to God, I'm not a stupid person (a little silly maybe sometimes and yes - I often run my mouth before I switch my brain on 😬), but I'm not thick, except when it comes to technology, or more specifically, songwriting, recording or computer technology....
I'm a very hands on kind of person, always have been. Totally rubbish at learning anything just by hearing or reading about it (yes it is a shame I wasted so many years if my life sitting at a desk listening to - or rather looking at the teacher - but writing songs and giving gigs in my head). And I'm actually a pretty decent handy woman, I'll repair any mechanical object, no problem, am the proud owner of a ton of tools, screws, nails, bits and pieces to fix stuff... but as soon as it us the kind of abstract piece of equipment as a computer or an interface, don't even mention an iphone, and I'm lost..... 😵💫
Actually the problems I encounter are usually not that complicated, but I can't for the life if me figure out, what I'm doing wrong....!!! Its enough to make me pull my hair and stamp my feet like a three-year-old... Like yesterday, I wanted to import a specific song, from my Apple Music App to a recording studio app so I could record some backing vocals onto it... it cooied every song into the rec. studio app except for the one I wanted.... No matter hiw hard I tried.. no... it wasn't having it! Now if I could have gone to my toolbox, gotten myself a screwdriver and unscrewed the song from Apple Music, then rescrewed it into the other app, that would have been great! Hooray for screwdrivers! I couldn't live without them, but they're useless when it comes to songwriting.... when are they going invent apps, into which I can put my song in 2 mins with the help of a screw and fitting screwdriver? Instead of wasting 2 hours pushing stupid little buttons that aren't very forthcoming with information and just sit infront of me looking innocent and mean at the same time... I hate buttons. Have I mentioned that? Especially computer buttons... sorry keys.... 👅👅👅
