The Transition from Singer/Songwriter to Chill Beats

I remember when I picked up the guitar for the very first time. My sophomore year of undergrad, nothing but John Mayer tunes in my mind... day in and day out. I wanted to create music just like him. I wanted to be the one-man acoustic act I had seen so many times on youtube in his earlier days, but being pop was never my scene. I've always gravitated towards more mellow and sad music, something about the progressions and sounds just soothe. I started realizing other people that love more downtempo and chilled out music also liked similar genres of tv shows, humor, and general habits with day to day life. I finally figured out that lofi was the perfect description and sound to match my mellow lifestyle.
