    Okay I've never been so convinced you're an AOL bot that has become sentient.

    dude you don’t get to say when a thread is done. Especially since you are just going to make the same thread again in 6 months.

    Listen, please don't take this as an attack.

    I've told you this on a number of occasions now in the past, in threads you've posted looking for feedback on your mixes, where you seem pretty disinterested in actually listening to or learning from that feedback.

    You come across on the internet as having a very strong need for outside validation, wanting other people to tell you when something is good or something isn't, wanting other people to tell you what to do, and looking for a "silver bullet" where it's just one more plugin or one more guitar with a special wood combo and that'll be the difference between what you have now and a mix that people think sounds great, or that'll be what it takes to get good tone. And then when people tell you that's not how it works, that you don't just slap a few presets on a mix and it sounds like Chris Lord Alge's latest work or something, or that the reason your tone isn't as good as you want it to be is you just need to get a guitar with a basswood body and a maple top and a moon ebony fretboard, and that what you need to do is spend some time listening and experimenting and figuring this stuff out on your own, you always say your job and your family keep you too busy, and what do you think of this mix.

    All I'm saying is the longer you continue to look for validation outside of yourself, ultimately the less happy you're going to be, and I think it's kind of dangerous to depend that much on the opinions of strangers for your own self worth.

    I realize this probably isn't an especially fun thing to read, but it's absolutely not some sort of an attack or attempt to put you down or make you feel bad. In the long run, the less you rely on the opinions of others and the more you can say "I like how this sounds" without worrying about what the internet thinks is "right," the better you'll be, both musically and personally. I think it will also help you not interpret everyone telling you this as a "hit" or an attack, too.

    Thanks Drew but life isnt all sunshine and rainbows. I do what i have to do to get by. I grew up surrounded by a bunch of naysayers. I am surprised i got this far.

    Of course life isn't sunshine and rainbows. But, that doesn't mean you don't need to learn how to navigate the stormclouds yourself, rather than just dropping a few bland truisms as an excuse for not trying to grow. If you got it this far, I suspect it was not by depending on others for validation. Maybe try applying those lessons here.
