Q: What is your definition of musical success?

A: What a fantastic first question - thank you! It's also a big question that deserves a thoughtful answer, so please excuse if this is a bit long winded. One thing I've learned over my years in music is that the definition of success evolves. Quick personal history - from childhood up to about age 25, my high level definition of musical success was nothing less than total rock stardom...fame, fortune, girls, stadium tours, the whole enchilada! Lesson learned: this is a good way to drive yourself crazy with frustration, harsh reality, and a lot of disappointment. There are too many factors you don't control to hit that lottery - so advice would be to pick smaller goals you can control, for starters. Anyway, after that fantasy fell apart, then I got married, had kids, and dove into a non-music career full-time - there was no room for music at all in my life. The definition of musical "success" for about five years was whether I picked up a guitar at all! I remained musically frustrated, disappointed, and largely "unsuccessful." (Hmmm...same outcome, totally different extreme...) Once my life started to get into better balance, I realized that high level musical success was more about the journey itself than any one particular light at the end of the tunnel. I know that may be a bit cliche, so what do I mean specifically in this case? These are the important questions I ask myself: Am I actively pursuing my personal musical goals? Are my musical pursuits artistically satisfying? Am I having fun? Is music correctly prioritized in my life? If my answers to these questions on a daily basis is "yes" than I am successful, no matter the outcome of any particular goal. If the answer to any of those is "no," then I am not having success and I need to adjust course. It has been a long road to get to this point, but my life is much happier with this definition of musical success, and I can proudly say I am more successful in music now than I've ever been.
