Listen to a lot of it and start figuring out the chords and licks.
Indie Rock and Power Pop are not very different from straight-up Rock and Roll.
I mean, I guess it depends on exactly what your definition of these sub-genres is - ?
Slow going so far, in part because there's a lot of Real Life Stuff going on. So I haven't had much play time recently.Hey, Heartbreaker! Any progress? What's working for you? What are you discovering?
I'm no pro, but I had the opposite experience. From about 2013 to 2018, I recorded about 120 of the songs I'd written over the years. Put hours into each song, massaging and tweeking inch by inch.. . . You pour over every inch of it making adjustments. After it's mastered and ready to burn copies you are so sick of your own music you want to puke! . . .

Not great stuff, but the best I could do. Didn't really like how they sounded, but with the help of Disk Makers I went ahead and put together a CD.
Put one in my car. And now I can't stop listening to it. Levels out my blood pressure instantly. It makes me wonder about my mental health. I have so many great CDs by artists I love, and instead of listening to them, I drive along happily listening to the dreck I produced. Over and over and over.
What's wrong with me? I probably need a shrink, but they say a shrink only helps if you want help.
Q: How many shrinks does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: Just one. But it takes a long time, and the lightbulb has to want to change.
