A Guide For The Music Loving Gentleman

Music is such a massive part of countless people’s everyday lives. Hundreds of millions enjoy music in so many different ways, and there is no universal way to listen and enjoy what you love. But even the music-listening experience can perhaps sometimes get a bit stale, so we’re giving you tips on how you can enjoy your music experience in a multitude of different ways.

1. Go to Live Music Shows

Live music shows are always a good idea. You get to see and meet new people, dance around and really let loose. You’ll find you are less stressed, have a more positive outlook on life and it’ll give you something to look forward to, especially as it is not something you get to do every day. Live music shows can also be a great way to discover new music (which is something we will discuss later on). So if ever you have a chance to attend a live music concert or festival, do not hesitate to say yes-  you’ll thank yourself for it later.

2. Analog Music

Listening to a song on vinyl is one of the best ways you can freshen up your listening experience. It’s akin to listening to a high-resolution digital version, except way way cooler. It can also be a fun hobby to collect different and unique vinyl records, not to mention that it’s pretty interesting and a great conversation starter (assuming it’s relevant, of course).

3. Learn to Play an Instrument

One way to further your appreciation of the music that you listen to everyday and possibly take for granted is to learn about the effort that goes into making it, and you can start doing that by learning to play an instrument. The guitar, the drums – it doesn’t matter. Building up your musical skills can be a great investment of your time: you learn a new skill, improve yourself and find something you’re passionate about. If you’re looking for somewhere to start browsing instruments, look no further than Bax Music, which is one of the best online resources for researching and buying different musical instruments.

4. Diversify

Far too often, you can find yourself listening to the same 20 tracks over and over, which becomes boring and repetitive. This is why you should make an effort to branch out and listen to as many different types of music as you possibly can. Widen your musical horizons and try listening to different genres and different artists- you’re bound to find something that you like that isn’t necessarily what you’re used to listening to. An added bonus is that you’ll find that you can talk about many different types of genres and artists, even if you’re not necessarily a fan.


Finding yourself in a musical stalemate is a problem that a lot of us face. The music that you love and are used to listening to becomes drab and uninspiring. The good news is that there are quick fixes, such as the ones we listed above. Moreover, modern music streaming apps, such as Spotify, can help you find new music and enhance your appreciation of the art of music.
