As time goes by, it’s been a year since we started this great adventure and I couldn’t be more grateful.
It’s being a time of learning, not only as a blogger, but also as a personal challenge to grow as a musician. Without a doubt, an enjoyable experience to recycle, discover and share.
A long time ago, when I started in music, there was no better feeling than getting together with your friends and playing covers of your favorite bands. Unlike what you see on TV or hear on the radio, you sound pretty bad rehearsing in your parents’ garage or basement. As time goes by, things get better, you stop playing other people’s songs to writte your own songs. You record your first demos in real music studios, you give free demos, you promote yourself giving concerts… All this at a time when social media was mouth-to-mouth. Finally and as a natural selection, call it a lack of talent, bad luck or not being in the right moment… All that illusion disappears one day.
Now that I’m a few years older, I realize that having a band with only 12 years old wasn’t the most common thing. So I feel very fortunate to have lived that moment.
Sometimes, we have to go back in order to move forward, in my case I’ve had the illusion again to get together again with my friends to play covers of our favorite bands. So I couldn’t find a better excuse to celebrate this 1st Anniversary of Mabanag Music and share my 10 favorite songs from Pop to Metal performed by modern bands.
I hope you like it… A million thanks to all of you who follow me in this madness!
