I do and I love it! It’s a sweet turn back time. Some songs have so much power of memory.
Some songs (document saves, thousands) are just there for one sounds I like or some sound arrangement. I always make some small changes, but I never say I hate them, I only hate my ears are so much used to high subass levels and very high hats. This makes me a very bad audio mastering engineer.
Hi, I like listening to my own creations, too. I think it is a good sign that I’m doing the right thing
I just dug up a song I recorded 6 years ago and was rocking out to it this morning!
As with many of you I’m sure, I write so many tracks that I tend to push them out of my mind as I move on to the next project. It’s a pleasure to go back and listen and think, “Oh wow, I forgot about that one. That was cool. I should do more like that.”
1. Hmm, this doesn’t sound that bad. Let’s finish it.
2. Oh yeah, it’s great. Let’s just fix stuff and make it sound better.
3. Wow, I can’t believe I wrote that. It’s better than my previous track! (play count ~100)
(1 month later): 4. Ugh. Still not that bad but… I don’t wanna listen to that.
(2 months later): 5. I can’t believe I thought that stuff sounded good(3 months later): 6. (empty recycle bin)
Exactly that way
I think it’s awesome, that you like to listen to your music! I do the same time to time. And while listening it’s very pleasant to notice the progress in my skills and also to find some music that I have already forgotten.
i think you need to re visit old times to assess what kind of a fruit cake you were and hopefully you are slightly less batty and have progressed and learned a few new tricks.
you can really take yourself by surprise when you look back.some times it sounds like a whole different person writing those tunes.
