"Trust your ears": What does that even mean!?

mix translation & psychoacoustics

Maybe you’ve noticed that I finish each of my Youtube videos with the phrase:

“Let’s keep learning to trust our ears.”

But if you’re anything like me, at some point you’ve probably also thought that that’s really dumb advice.

What does “trusting your ears” even mean!??

Because if you just throw caution in the wind and blindly follow your gut…


I’m sure we’ve all experienced just how badly that can turn out.

So how do you make sure you focus on the RIGHT things when learning to trust your ears, and you don’t end up in another pit of despair?

Actually it all has to do with refining your taste in music. To a really absurd level.

Let me show you what I mean in this week’s video.
