Whats everyone want to learn?
Stretch your comfort zone when
For a while I got used to making simple hip-hop beats and I stuck with it because I felt confident but I knew I was going to get complacent if I didn’t start expanding soon.
I was low-key intimidated by other genres like Trap, EDM, Future Bass, because I didn’t know where to start.
Eventually I just tackled it head on and used reference tracks to guide me along the way.
The hardest part was getting started but in the end I was able to make some pretty satisfying tracks that I never thought I would be able to do so quickly.
This gave me a massive confidence boost and it felt so great knowing that I overcame something I was afraid of.
So if there are other genres you want to dive into but are not sure where to start don’t worry. That’s completely normal and we all experience it.
You can use reference tracks to understand how the songs are structured. How the sounds are layered. And from there the little intricate details that take it to the next level.
It’s important to break things down step-by-step so you don’t overwhelm yourself. I think that’s where people get lost and give up too soon.
Systemizing your workflow is what will help you finish consistently and get good results.
Just wanted to share my recent experiences. I hope everyone is crushing it with their music goals today!

Highly recommended viewing….but just listen. Adam (a master musician) does a great job of demonstrating that modern tuning and the digitization of audio is unlikely designed to kill us all and separate us from “god”.
Here, is a follow up video. Very esoteric and basically a “tree hugger approach” to the phenomenon. However, I think it’s good to package this type of learning with the two ends of the spectrum in practice.
I posted a link to one of them in the Ableton subreddit and got immediately banned and now I feel all rejected and just wanted reassurance that Ableton doesn’t hate me 🥺
Does anybody else here make mashups? Where do you share them? Can I hear some?
