I’ve been trying to discipline myself recently and write new music on a (somewhat) regular basis. I was able to get a new idea started this evening, which I hope to be able to post soon and do a full write up on. Through the years, as I’ve grown in my writing it’s funny, but easily the best way I’ve found to learn new techniques or styles, or simply working to mimic a sound you admire, has been to sit down and write. Over and over and over again. It is in valuable the amount of learning you can do from simply trying, and many times failing, to achieve a new sound. I’ve been pushing myself to update my sound. To refresh. Let me tell you, it’s been difficult, and sometimes frustrating, but it’s getting rewarding. I’ve made more music in the last 6 months than I have in the last 2 years, and I know I’m just at the tip of the iceberg.
Keep making great music.
