If the artist feels good, he should go after his work.
Mick Fleetwood sees joining TikTok as a musician as the artist who joins a band, a family. On this platform, musicians receive comments when they share their work. Encounters with objective viewing angles. Maybe someone is enjoying them or some don’t like them. The artist, who receives these feedbacks, understands that whatever he does, his works can be liked more and tries to produce better works, sometimes he can make an instant change, sometimes he tries the same a few more times and can see how these works they reflect on people.
The advice Mick gives young musicians who are afraid and hesitant to share their work on these platforms is to listen to their instincts. He advises that if the work they do makes them feel good, if they can bond with it, pursue it and fight for it. He says that they must realize that the TikTok platform is a real scene that they have been given, and if they become part of it, they will see that they really have something special in them, they can trust and believe in themselves, they will see similar feelings in other people and you will find that you are not alone.
