Hey /leftypol/

I thought I'd make a general for any amateur or professional /leftypol/ musicians if there are any here. We can discuss your experiences, ask for or give advice, create resources, or just chat.

As for me, I am a hobbyist guitarist that's only been playing for about a year and a half; not even sure if I'm intermediate level yet lol. However, I can give tips or provide resources for anybody just starting out.

Might be worth offering use of your tracks for free or nominal charge to small developers of videogames, short films, Youtube videos etc? That is where I find a lot of music I end up liking.


I was learning for a little while years ago but ended up dropping it. Learned all the chords, knew a range of some strumming patterns but struggled with those, was absolutely terrible at plucking. Got bored of learning how to get better, wrote some truly terrible original songs, then gave up.

I dont regret trying, it was nice.


much easier to play guitar on a keyboard imo, lots of good guitar vst's out there to download


I'd be interested to know how you actually became musicians. It's the one thing I just don't really understand how people get into.
I know the tiniest amount of music theory and I'm reasonably good at playing the simplest songs (of the "songbook that comes with $30 keyboard, one note at a time" variety), but I'd expect to understand *why* I don't understand how you make your own music by this point. It's like programming by copy and pasting: I'm hitting keys, the sound is coming out of the instrument, but if you ask me to tell you why it works I draw a blank.
I'm no further ahead with trackers or DAWs or anything, but in that case I suspect it's because I'm completely lacking in confidence when it comes to listening to things. I can draw a picture and immediately assess "yes, this conveys what I wanted to show" even if my art is bad. With music in a tracker I can never tell whether the pattern of notes I've made is pleasing, or if I've simply tuned out how irritating it is. Even then it's too small to be anything but one component of a larger tune, so it feels like drawing what you think is a passable three legged chair in what you intended to be a massive picture of a party.

Yet obviously people are breaking through and know what exactly they're supposed to stick at and practice to get good at it, so there's something I'm missing. Maybe being able to identify each note by ear suddenly makes music as intuitive as visual art. Maybe it all makes more sense if you try to write songs with lyrics with a guitar rather than trying to do instrumentals with a keyboard. I don't know, that's why I'm interested in how you all started.


You're halfway there already. Just find the right chord progression, and repeat

As an avid listener of metal, something that frustrates me is the prevalence of chuds and reactionaries in metal (especially black metal). The visibility of guys like Varg and Famine of Peste Noire infamy has colored the public perception of extreme metal as being the domain of edgelord fascists. What are some metal groups that could be said to be socialist, anarchist, or leftist in some manner?

To start things off, I'd highly recommend the Panopticon album "Kentucky," which is a BM album about the state's history with labor organizing among coal miners, as well as the coal industry's destruction of the state's natural beauty. It's not a perfect album by any means but the way it mixes BM with bluegrass is cool, plus it has an incredibly redpilled message.

Panopticon is godtier.

Yeah lol no generals pls lol a leftist music general is what we would need if we didnt have a music board

Damn Sankara is great. this is perfect, ive been trying to get into metal but ive only really been able to get into more cross genre concept stuff like Panopticon, and i was introduced to metal thru people into punk and jazz so im not really into the more glossy, goofy high fantasy viking stuff. no disrespect for it i appreciate the aesthetic, it reminds me of the goofy 90s/2000s rap aesthetic, but i like it grimier. even Burzum i do actually really like, i think i only listened to the album with the horn on the cover but i loved it, fascist shit aside

i also really fuck with Electric Wizard and Dopesmoker, if anybody has any sludgy metal recs i'd appreciate it.

What are musics that are not commie but capture the essence of being commie?
I think the OG Terminator theme counts
Really all the T1 music is hardcore futuristic cyberpunk apoca-punk commie bass themes based

fellow zoomers get ITT. I'm making this thread for myself, since it's all I listen to these days. don't hesitate to recommend shit you like. it does not necessarily have to contain rap. anything in the area of trip hop, downtempo, lo-fi, chopped and screwed, gorillaz. you get the idea

some artists:
Knxwledge is a former soundcloud producer. he's the founder of the sound that YouTube calls "lo-fi hip hop" these days.
Mach Hommy, my current favorite rapper. possibly the greatest rapper of all time. just released a great album called Fete Des Morts.
MIKE. rapper and producer. makes a LOT of music which is mostly him rapping over his own beats.

some songs:

You guys know this one right? Pretty old by now, but timeless. If you don't know, try "Slang Blade" for a taste.



is this that degenerate bebop music Rob was telling us about?
