how can i develop good taste?
be a snob and make people believe what you like is better than what they like
Literally just listen to as much music as possible.
Step 1: Listen to music.
Step 2: Enjoy what you enjoy.
Step 3: Don't let LULZ hiveminds try and guilt you for what music you like.
It's that simple.
and in your deathbed you'll be able to say: I'm so glad I only listened to the same 20 artists over and over again
Listen to RYM
Listen to YouTube Comment Sections for Boomer Bands
>Listen to rym
Yeah bruh the teenage tastemakers there really know their shit, Kendrick Lamar and Radiohead are the absolute GOATS
> Listen to YouTube Comment Sections for Boomer Bands
this is the cheatcode
zoomers even live in a world where they banned youtube comment sections for generic band channels, truly a loss
for rock-based music, listen to progressive and art rock music from the late 60s-early 80s. jazz fusion is fine too.
ignore the post-rock rabbit hole and anything that came out in or after the 90s.
Based, be as obnoxiously pretentious and gay as possible
You could start by exploring the entirety of the classical music canon. Maybe listen to every scaruffi rec for good measure too. But good taste is like developing wisdom or intuition particular to a field of study. It's not something you can leap frog into having. It's the byproduct of a life-long preoccupation. The worst thing you can do is worry about your stature in taste. Ultimately, nobody cares about it and it's not what art is about.
You have to have a soul and be close enough with it to be able to listen to it's guidance, and the courage to open yourself to new things
You can't, everything sucks
Avoid Fantano, Rxm, and LULZcore. Consume as much of each genre as you can and branch out to whatever interests you.
Learn to play a musical instrument if you don't already, preferably classical training. Discover what constitutes good songwriting ie form.
i can teach you good taste for 2 drachmae
You can put on a shirt, to start.
After that idk stop being a bitch. Like what you like. Maybe consider flaws in things, even the things that you do like, I and it may help you refine how you see things. I still like garbage but I know what is holding it back, to my eyes and ears. I think that's what critique is anyways
>I really do wish that I was still comfortable enough to live without a short on
Stop looking at my tits homo
>They're just too good, bro.
listen to more music
Never mention what you actually like and just talk down everyone who brings up artists and genres they like
This. Thats the most based way of being into music.
Just look for decent, underrated artists. You can listen to niche music too. Find them on YouTube, Bandcamp, or whatever platform you use. Just avoid rapslop, popslop, and overrated/overplayed music and you're good to go.
Idk anon seeing the virtue in obscure acts seems like a result of good taste, not a means towards it.
just accept your taste is trash like I do
Follow Scaruffi's opinions religiously
dive really deep into the discographies and related artists/labels of artists you already like. learn what they are, where they come from, the general context of their music. become an expert in what you already find to be good while not shying away from new things, because ultimately most people can find something to like in any genre.
Start by not posting frogs. Frogposting is the ultimate sheep behaviour. By defaulting to posting frogs all the time you are showing that your mind is in a padded cell.
Stop paying attention to what other people are doing and what other people are pretending to like.
Listen to stuff and enjoy what you enjoy.
If you want to understand and appreciate music better, learn to play an instrument, even just to the most basic hack level. Buy a cheap second-hand guitar and teach yourself to play a few chords and scales. You will sound like shit but you will be able to hear and understand what real musicians are doing.
You can also read and listen more to appreciate the historical and geographical and social and musical contexts that different kinds of music and individual albums/songs have come out of.
TL:DR It's not a competition. Enjoy what you like and learn more about music to appreciate it better.
Case in point.
Free your mind, and your ass will follow.

develop good racism and stop listening to drums
