Nita Strauss Says ‘You Adapt Or You Die’ As She Opens Up About The Artists’ Struggles During The Pandemic
Alice Cooper guitarist Nita Strauss spoke in a recent interview with The Session and talked about how the coronavirus outbreak affected the music industry.
As we all know, the outbreak and lockdown restrictions forced almost every musician to postpone their events and meetings. Because of that, some of them focused on releasing new materials in this period.
In the conversation, Nita mentioned the problem the coronavirus outbreak caused and stated that the musicians need to adapt or they will most likely die as an artist.
Furthermore, Nita pointed out that this is the busiest year of her life and also confirmed that she has been writing her second solo album during the self-quarantine days.
Here is what Nita Strauss said:
“Honestly, I can say without hesitation this has been the busiest year of my life. It really has. Because every artist has been forced to adapt; you adapt or you die. Not literally, but you must adapt, you must pivot in the 2020-2021 era.
So I released my online guitar course. I put together three modules that take someone from picking up the guitar for the very first time all the way through all the techniques that I know, basically.
And it’s called ‘Rock Guitar Fundamentals’. And the web site is the best URL ever — it’s IWantToPlayGuitar.com, which I love. I started a Patreon page, so that’s where I do weekly live streams with them.”
“I taught my way through almost a full Alice Cooper set and a bunch of different technique, sort of, workshops and everything like that.
I’ve been writing my second solo album, which I’m very excited about. We built this pretty studio that you see behind me. It’s barely just getting finished up, so we actually built this from the ground up, which was a huge learning experience.”
