>I practice every day but I'm afraid I might not ever achieve this level of music mastery, and frankly it's quite discouraging...

Anyone else feel like no matter how hard you try to get good at your instrument / vocals, you stumble accidently upon something that puts you in your place and makes you feel like you are just wasting your time if someone can so effortlessly be this goddam good?

Comparison is the thief of joy. I went to music school is world class masters of their instrument. People who had jobs lined up touring the world before they even entered in. It was difficult, I didn't really belong but had money lol, and I ended up dropping out, abusing drugs until my family ousted me and now I have no instruments, live in a trailer, and drive a UPS truck for a living.

Yeah, creativity isn't a race. It's not a weightlifting contest, it's not fencing.

It's about resonating with people. Ask yourself questions like
>How can I better express my ideas and create the things I want to?

Actually that's pretty much the only one that matters as far as being "good" goes. If you make music for any reason other than the love of making music it's going to suck.
