I started (serious) studying guitar at age 17. It was the only thing in my life i was really sure about. Two weeks before the entrance examination i got sick and had to rush into the hospital. I had to stay there for one month and on release, the diagnosis was a disaster (myelitis with a possibility of multiple sclerosis) - that meant, at any time in the future, in my 20ties or 30ties, i could loose the ability of movement and would end in paralysis. Altrought i couldnt study anymore (my shoulder was really damaged and i lost a lot of sensitivity in my fingers), i never stopped learning, went back to drums and later piano, til i was able to get my grip back. Now i teach (just the children in the town and some friends). Thanks to youtube teachers nowadays i am still constantly learning more and more, knowledge i wouldn't had access to otherwise. Moral of the story: Life is merciless and sometimes devastating. And 99% of us won't be "huge musicians", just people who make and teach music. But thats ok. Like almost everyone, in my youth I dreamed of a great musician career. Today, i'm just happy to be able to make music and i love it to be the boring guy in a small village teaching music to annoying little kids.

99.99% won't be, but you have changed many lives, as being able to play music can be magical. I can't imagine not being able to play guitar, I can play Hendrix, Page, Beck, etc. whenever I want, and still learn all the time.

my dad had a similar situation. Applied to master's school at Penn state and was rejected. got into UCLA, got his MBA. 7 years later, Penn state hired him to teach military history. His opening line to his class was, "Penn State doesn't think I'm smart enough to be a student here, but they do think I'm smart enough to be a teacher."

This experience must be more common than originally realized. I took an elective class from a college professor who advised me that my major was a complete waste of time and I would never get a job, blah blah blah. Not only did I recently retire from the supposed job I would never have, but I also was hired to teach the same class he taught (without the degree he thought I should have), and in the exact same classroom where he gave me such poor advice. Go figure.

@blueheron5232 4 anos atrás
At some time in the last few hundred years, formal music education got lazy and lost the ability to teach how to improvise on the fly. That USED TO BE a required part of "Classical" music performance but now "Classical" is synonymous with stale museum pieces set in stone that one recites "correctly." Today the "Blues Nazis" comprised of people who've never played a gig are trying to do the same thing to that genre. It's the people who play live who keep music alive.

Both comments above are GOLD! When you read about musical education in the XVIII century, late baroque and early classical periods, you see all those pratices of learning ALL the scales, the harmonic relations and realization of figured bass in a thousand of possible combinations by ROTE, the so called "partimento" realization of cyphered harmony and even FUGUE improvisation! To make music was to CREATE music in the craftiest way possible! A promethean amount of sweat and practice! It's read in many sources that Bach could improvise complex and well rounded fugues out of almost nothing and it usually impresses the modern reader. But improvising fugues, counterpoint structured choral preludes, sonata-form movements, "basso ostinato" forms and bass realizations of figured harmony was a requirement for ALL professional musicians applying for ANY position in those times! The average professional could think in a second about MANY possible solutions to the SIMPLEST melodic line they found in their ways! Beethoven, a musician trained in those parameters, was a GREAT master of music structure engineering, parting from trivial themes and figures, like the famous four note figure (for the 5th symphony and many other works from the same period) or the Diabelli Waltz, and building from them really complex and intellectually challenging works! He was the ripest fruit of the "improvising craft" way of music training from the XVIII hundreds!

Dear Rick, when I was 9 years old, I wanted to play the piano more than anything in the world. I loved Grieg and dreamed of being able to play his concertos. Someone donated an old piano to me and had it delivered outside our house. My parents let it sit there for weeks until it got taken away. My grandmother took me to ballet class, and they said I could borrow a pair of shoes until my parents got me a pair. They never did, and I had to leave. I gave up on believing I could do anything I loved. So I listened to your video with tears streaming down my face for your honesty and bravery. I know this video is a year old, and probably things are better, but I want to support you by becoming a subscriber. You have brought back the songs I loved in my youth and given so much happiness to me. Thank you, and all my best to you and your family.

I sacrificed my whole youth and most of my adult life honing my skills and becoming and entertainer. I have skills. I have fresh new great music that the few fans I've showed love and wonder why I don't play live. I get ignored by every musician and band i work for all these decades so I just gave up. I feel you and even more sorrow for you and my heart hurts for you. I truly wish I could buy you what you wanted,but,I can't and it hurts me to know I can't help you. I feel for you so much that to be honest,your story brought me to tears and broke my heart which I haven't felt for so long. I'm so sorry dear fellow musician.

@donnythompson408 3 anos atrás
There have been times where, as a performing musician, I’ve been frustrated (from a little to a lot) by people who have said to me, “it must be wonderful to have such a god-given talent, to be able to play and sing so well... and how great it must be to make a living working only a few hours a day!” Most of the time, I politely thank them, but a part of me always bristles at those kinds of comments, because these people - who mean well - have no earthly idea of just how hard pro musicians work to get where they are. They can’t conceive of how we’ve all worked our asses off, to reach a level of being just acceptably “good”. The sacrifices, the discipline, the feast or famine months, the years spent on the road playing gigs, driving through the worst weather imaginable to get to the gig, showing up for load-in at noon to do a show that night at 9, and then loading out at 2 a.m., driving the rest of the night to get to the next city... I’m not suggesting that there isn’t such a thing as having a “natural” talent for certain things, and music wouldn’t be an exception to that. Some are born with a natural sense of pitch and rhythm. But mostly, it all comes down to hard work, dedication, and practice, practice, practice... and not for months, but for YEARS that determines your skill. It’s having your friends stop by on a Friday evening when you’re 18, while you’re practicing your instrument, trying to get an exercise right, playing it over and over, while they’re urging you to go out with them that evening, and saying, “Sorry guys, I’m gonna pass, I need to practice.” It’s sacrificing personal relationships, because you aren’t ever home, working for months out on the road; it’s going through times when you can’t afford to eat; it’s searching out those other musicians who are far better than you, just so you can learn something from them; and it’s times where you’re forced to take any gig that comes your way... and ultimately, it’s making a conscious decision to commit yourself fully to an occupation that most non-musicians (I refer to them as “civilians”) look upon as being “lazy” and “easy”... Over the 4-plus decades that I’ve been a working musician, I’ve found that it’s not talent (or at least not talent alone) that makes you a good musician... it’s the level of commitment you decide to dedicate yourself to. IMHO, of course.
@edwardgucker5790 3 anos atrás
Most ultimately successful bands had very humble beginnings where they eeked out a living until they produced something brilliant and/or get noticed by the right person. It's usually the absolute commitment you speak of; they simply refuse to give up because it's the only thing they want to do. Stories of bands like Iron Maiden and Aerosmith are good examples. (sharing a studio apartment together or living in their cars while performing as bar-bands right out of high school). I played in bars for a year after high school, but I couldn't support myself, so I accepted reality and went to college.
@Bradgilliswhammyman 3 anos atrás
To be fair while you can learn to play a instrument , you may not be great and just is very difficult to sing well. You are either born with a great singing voice or you can't hold a tune. A lucky few can use their vocal strangeness and become successful.

Totally relate to this!! People so often seem to think that you just turn up, plug in and play!! They don't see the hours of practice and rehearsal that you put in so as to make sure that you're a memorable part of their night. They don't see the many huddles that two guitar players go off into in order to try and work out harmony passages etc. And (speaking as a bass player) they don't see the infuriating frustration of having to try and work with an ostentatious drummer who suddenly doesn't appear to speak or understand English when you say things like, "No, leave a bar and half of space there"! And I know we don't do this for the money, God knows we don't do this for the money!!

I love hearing stories like this. Mr. Beato truly deserves the success he's had in his life. More young people early in their career should watch this.
I started proper lessons in 1977. I was on stage for the first time in 1980. Gigged from then until 1991. Then back at it in 1995. During the 80s me and my bandmates gigged almost every weekend. 4 sets a night. Great club circuit. All those clubs are gone. I feel bad for young guys getting the chance to play. The clubs just arent there. Thats how you get good -playing in front of people. On the side I was playing weddings, bar mitzvahs etc....Play live any chance you get.

This is so inspiring. I've had classical piano lessons since I was 8 yrs old. When I got older I joined the Army when I was 19 to escape drug addiction and to have enough money to buy my first Mbox and Pro Tools rig. I got chaptered out for medical and got a job at a mom and pop music store where I learned about the music industry first hand. I met a friend and started a recording studio in town. My gf at that time was moving to California so I called studios in LA asking if I could work for them, and got a job at an indie label. They moved me out and let me stay at a house for free and I helped them bring high value clientele into the studio. I'm 33 now, decided to move home to PA about a year ago and bought my first guitar. Not long after that I subscribed to your channel, Rick and have been thinking about starting a band. I literally teared up when you said Shinedown happened in your late 30's.

Fast forward to 2018, the modest house we bought while I was in school is bought and paid for and our 4 kids are all sight-reading multi-instrumentalists...I am an average joe who had the good fortune to meet a good woman and enough sense to stop, although belatedly, self-destructing before it killed me. So, it is never too late as long as you believe in yourself, aren't afraid of a lot of hard work and sacrifice and have someone in your corner rooting for you. As a final note, I started playing guitar seriously about 2 years ago and cannot believe the amount of time and dedication it has taken me to play at a "campfire" level: I have never been more in awe of serious musicians than I am today and am amazed at the level of dedication required by even very talented and gifted people to become well-rounded musicians. Thanks for the inspirational rant, Rick.

I loved your rant! Your story reminds me of Angela Duckworth's Grit theory. She teaches about the difference between those who are successful and those who are not. Those who do not give up and try harder when they fail, are more successful because they have determination, drive, and what she calls grit.

63 years old on the downswing of my career. My whole life I kept saying to myself, one of these days your going to learn guitar (speaking to myself is common these days). There's only one reason I didn't learn, me! I was a talker. Pretty cliche. Last year I finally bought an acoustical and electric guitar. Every day since, I have picked up one or the other or both. Today, I am still a beginner, have no visions of grandeur but can say, I can play guitar. Watching your videos over the last several months has amped me up even more and am now enjoying when I play. Thank you for your enthusiasm and unending knowledge about music and the music business. It has helped re-kindle a beautiful fire. Take care and keep sharing.

Those that find an early path that's rather easy may be cheated out on a lot more that life may have otherwise offered them. Rick didn't take a long time to find his path, his path was this whole journey to here. none of his history was wasted. It all lead to him becoming who he is and what he has to offer us all now. Yes, this is also yet another chapter in his story, The BRvid years. At least that's how I perceive things.

Oh my god Shinedown! I'm from the era of mid 90s - early naughties Knoxville TN. My bands were fairly well known at the time in the area and I remember Dreve getting pulled apart by some record deal or another. I suppose that is where Shinedown came from. They will know me - hahaha. Love what you do here Rick and maybe I should start telling my decades of insane stories on BRvid about musical journeys. Yours is awesome. - what we all learn is when you do it because you have to and you LOVE it - the work is the reward and you will land on your feet if the passion keeps you going. Keep Rocking.

Another of Rick's many great videos. If you liked Rick's story, get Steve Lukather's book. Steve auditioned for lead guitarist in rank Zappa's band. Zappa purposely humiliated Steve in a room filled with pro guitarists. Steve swore to himself that would never happen again. I highly recommend Steve's autobiography. Rick should start his bio if he has not already.
