“Another big thing I’ve learned along the way is, especially if you’re doing this for fun, and music should always be done for fun, in my opinion, even when it’s work: It can be hurtful to compare yourself to others, you versus them. Especially today, you know, with social media, I’m sure everyone’s now there. If I open my Instagram, I see a massive feed of absolutely amazing performances. This perfect looking guitar player playing the most awesome guitar lick ever. I find it’s not healthy to compare to that. Even now that I’m doing this for a living, what I try to compare to is myself yesterday, or a month ago, or a year ago, or ten years ago.” — Tero Potila, Composer
