  7. The new SongStarter feature in BandLab may just be an awesome way to kick that writers block to the curb! It may take a few tries, but at the least you'll have an idea to go off of. The main thing is that it gets the creative juices flowing and allows for new and fresh sounds to be produced instead of reaching for the same chords or samples again. Have you used it? Let me know what you think? Have you made a song with it? Then share it with me and I'll feature it on the channel! Here's to staying creative and getting out of writers rut!

  10. I am just curious if other bands run into this kind of situation when the band takes a break during a recording session, where the drummer over takes the piano & vocal mic as his little crony ditches the guitar for the drumset….as I was the only one left in charge of bass and piano on this session, It is apparent that I was quickly ousted. I like to refer to this wild piece of magic as The Drummers Mutiny (Explicit)

  12. Hello to me fellow producers! So I don't know how many of you will know this genre but my problem today is that I can't hear a melody for my song. The genre for today is Electroswing. Electroswing is a genre that is derived from the olden days Swing music which was an evolved form of Jazz music from the 20's. Today, Electroswing has evolved from you typical live bands (think about the Cantina Band from Star Wars), into an electronic iteration of Swing which now features synth basses, leads, and many many more digital stuff. Now that you just finished your history class, it's time to get into my problem. So I never knew what Electroswing was until my brother showed it to me and asked me to make him a song. I accepted the challenge and got to work on it. For about a week I attempted to use the foundation as the Cantina Band but I quickly found that that was going to make it difficult to structure a song around. I tried again and this time with an acapella but I only got to the kick pattern and called it quits because the acapella was wrong. So I spent the better half of about a week and a half studying the genre for real and learning how to make and learning by ear. This was a better approach as I was finally able to get somewhere and I had laid down the basic "puh doo puh doo puh doo" rhythm. From there the song took off and I find myself nearing the end and all I need now is a melody. "This is no problem. I've made plenty of melodies before, what's one more?" My own thoughts lied to me. While the rest of the song was somewhat easier, the melody posed to be the hardest because of how I made the chords. What am I asking? Well, I came here to ask for help or advice with my melody problem. I wanted to know if anyone is able to either make a melody for me since I'm not an Electroswing expert or to help me figure out a way to make an Electroswing melody meaning giving me tips or ideas or something that will help me to spark an idea that will fit within my song. And lastly, I've never worked with brass before so I don't know how to make that cool ensemble so if you know how to make that, then please by all means do. If you're making the melody, I ask that it would sound good on piano (duh), saxophone, and a synth lead as those are the key elements in Electroswing melodies. Below is my song demo so you can take a listen. Key of D major BPM 130 P.S. it sounds phasey because I had to lower the bit rate in order to shrink the file size so if anyone has a way to shrink file sizes as well, please let me know.
