I actually started playing hand drums at 7, but later got into trumpet, and then guitar. Guitar I always wanted to play, but didn't have the chance until I was in 8th grade, and at the end of high school I started with Fruity loops. I actually started by just putting like prime loops together, and I felt like I was making some badass electronic beats, and eventually by events and having my music called shitty by a dude I liked I actually took the time to get to explore music, daws, and finding what I like about certain genres. Kind of I make music because it is an exploration of yourself, but you can make it abstract as possible, or make it predictable.
I like it now in a why kind of similar to when I was a teenager + for what I found when in college. Music can be like an international language where you display yourself for others to see, it can be competition like the old guitar battles, rap battles, it can teach you about yourself, it can embody history and culture, and the world of synth and playing guitar man is like an infinite experience.
I also like the power to bring people together or divide people. It is very powerful man and I make it out of the love of it, the path of it, the study of it, and the competition of it.
If a person loves music too much, stronger than just enjoying listening to it like most of people, he/she usually tries to learn to reproduce and later to create it by him/herself. So did I. The thing is in the strenghth of loving music, I think.
