Hey guys! I know this is a little late, but I still wanted to share this with you all.
In this video blog Im asking for your help. I am asking for a little advice on what content I should post more of. I know I have been a little random with my recent updates, so I want to narrow it down a little. This is just so I can focus more on what really matters and so Im not wasting time on random stuff.
So help me out and leave a comment below and let me know what you guys would like to see more of. For now I will keep posting a little bit of everything until I get a good flow going and things get easier.
Until next time, stay safe and please wear a mask.
Hey guys, I just wanted to share a quick video I did last night. I have been working on perfecting my Ableton live sessions, and I made some progress last night.
In this video, I was able to get a good guitar loop laid down and build a good foundation to practice some leads. I used my Behringer FCB 1010 MIDI controller to do most of the work, and I also used my trusty Akai APC Key 25 to knock out the drums.
Overall, the song is another chilled vibe. I liked that I was able to do some cool riffs over the base loop, and that I was able to drop a beat really quick. This was the 3rd or 4th time I ran through the song. So it only took about 20 min to build an idea and make it a foundation of a new song. That’s really quick for me!
Hey guys, glad you’re still here. I hope you are hanging in there and staying strong. Things are still crazy out there so Im happy you’re here.
This is just my opinion but I know Im going to piss some people off. But fuck it. Some of this shit is ridiculous and I cant believe I even have to say this.
People are dying. People have lost loved ones. People have lost children and children have lost Parents. I cannot stand for it. I will not stand for it. I cannot continue to watch as nothing is being done while more and more people die. Its sickening.
I understand that businesses are closing doors and people are losing their jobs. But what I cant understand is how loss of revenue and the economy are more important than the loss of life. We can bounce back and we can turn the economy around with proper leadership. But we can never bring people back.
If everyone is lying in a grave who are you going to serve drinks to? Is going to a restaurant more important than another persons life? I don’t think so. Is your vanity worth taking a child’s life?
I know the pain of losing someone you love. I also know what its like to struggle and have a business fail. The pain of losing a love one, WILL ALWAYS HURT MORE. If my job closed down today, I will go dig ditches to support my family. I will do whatever it takes to support them. But I will not go through the pain of losing someone I love just so some selfish person can go get a drink. I will not bury a family member so you can have a night out. I will not let you die so I can play golf.
Get the fuck over it. Wear a mask. Make the sacrifice. Stop putting money over human lives…
I feel that it’s time for a refresher. I make beats. Some I sell, some I keep. But all of them take a part of me.
I use my music to express myself, my anger, and my pain. I try to put some part of myself into every song. Sometimes I’m able to write something people really like and inspires them to share a part of them as well. Sometimes I make music just for myself, or to specifically express something that I might not have been able to otherwise. But every time, it contains some part of my struggle or perhaps, my soul.
It’s easy to get lost in the bullshit. It’s easy to make trash and follow trends. I’ve done it, we all have. So my friends, I’m trying to remember to cut out those small, little, pieces of myself and share them in the music.
