Where my #HOMies at? (#HubskiOriginalMusic)
I finished my Monthly.com "Complete Music Production with Andrew Huang" class. Everything from finding inspiration, to writing lyrics, to basic music theory, to basic synth programming, to working in a DAW, to recording electronic/acoustic/vocal instruments, to samples-based music making, to mixing and mastering, all in 1 month, with the final result being three songs completely written and produced from scratch.
Holy CRAP I am so much better/more adept with my tools now than I was before! The pressure of producing a new song every week, but it being limited to demonstrating specific techniques, turned out to be exactly the thing I needed to figure out a workflow... how to get ideas from my head, into a instrument, into a DAW, and structured to sound like an actual finished piece of music.
Yeah, I still can't sing for shit... but I DID IT. I wrote the song. Wrote the lyrics. Sung them. (kinda...) And accomplished that milestone!
It feels good.
Now I get to start working on my own music, and writing songs with none of the restrictions imposed by the class or my cohort that I took the class with... which is both daunting and invigorating. Yay me.
