Day 14: Getting into the Groove

14 Aug

Blaugust Entry, Day 14

So here’s a continuation of last night’s Music Challenge.

It’s starting to solidify in my head.

I have a basic template set up on my recording software with these tracks: Drum Sampler / Guitar 1 / Guitar 2 / Bass.

I will load this template each night and it will be ready for me to record. This will be my routine:

  1. Choose from one of the preprogrammed drum grooves.
  2. Compose and record a short guitar riff over it.
  3. Record a second and/or third guitar part over the first.
  4. Record a bass line.
  5. A very basic mix before exporting the file.


After a while, the workflow should become second nature and I can start to experiment a little at a time.

Speed is key. Just like with sports, a musical instrument, or twitch gaming, the more focused practice you put in, the faster you will get.

I need to get myself to a place where I can start monetizing my assets.

Here’s my #2:

Onward, to Day 15!
