I started down the path of music production at home about 3 years ago, give or take. I've been playing for a long time (20+ years) but the whole making music at home thing was (and still very much is) a mystery.
Along the way I found out about stock music and I thought that it would be fun and a great way to practice my skills so I started composing... some of the first submits I made to AJ were hilarious now looking back on it (thought they were pretty good at the time though!!) but I kept trying and learning and going back to the drawing board...
Anyways, after 3 years or so, finally got an approval a couple days back and made my first sale today! Hopefully I'll be able to keep a bit of momentum going now!
Don't forget that any musical endeavour is ultimately a journey if you want to get good at it so don't be afraid to keep failing until you get closer to something you're happy with
