Hi, me and my friend disagree on this. My friend says to become famous or even somewhat successful in music you must be a great musician with whatever instrument you play. I, however think that is not true. It is mostly in the songwriting skills. Look at Nirvana. I'll be honest nirvana is my favorite band of al ltime but the truth is they werent that talented. Almost every song of theirs is a combo of bar chords that can be easily played by a novice guitar player. It is however actually using the chords to write the songs that is whats important. I know being talented definetly helps but I dont believe its necessary to be very talented to become successful. What do you guys think?
