    Hi. Recently I've been completely hooked in teaching myself music production. It takes top priority of my spare time as of late. I'm not too good, but I think I'm learning fast. Anyone else do anything similar?
    Here's a sample of my newest beat project - junguru beat sample.wav

    I tried a course on Coursera for songwriting. It was quite entertaining and informative, but I did not complete it. I think it is a great course (free as well) for the right kind of person, which I unfortunately am not.

    Songwriting: Writing the Lyrics - Berklee | Coursera

    I love and appreciate good music. But it seems my talents are in listening, rather than creating.

    Good work!

    I appear to have that same issue. Shows up on the guitar, as well. Now that I think of it, it also applies to whisky. Maybe I have a genetic condition...

    i am familar with music and production but im old school, where we had to pay studio time and the mixing board was wider than your arms could reach. so i would say i am analog recording literate but digital not much.

    I have a lot of gear where I could record at home, but I don't have the time. LOL

    Got myself EZ Drummer because that is the only instrument I cannot play...well, within the context of the kinds of songs I write anyway. (I compose with two guitars, bass and drums in mind. Vocals too. Sometimes backing vocals, sometimes harmonica for acoustic stuff. I cannot play piano/keyboard either, although I would love to learn that and add it into the mix.)

    I almost went to college at Berklee for Recording engineering...... but by no means does that imply I have any talent for writing music...cause I don't

    Producers often don't. However, sometimes they can hear what would make a band sound better...better than the band members themselves!

    I like making electronic sounds on my computer, though I haven't in quite a while at this stage tbh, too much anime watching and procrastination:

    Indeed, I undertook a similar project some years back. I had no experience with this sort of thing, but it's still available on SoundCloud.
