This Post Could Make You Rich

In an earlier post, I posted David Jenyn’s, SEO (Search Engine Optimization) video producer, e-mail to me about how much time he devotes to his finished work. He e-mailed me how he infuses three hours of his time into every finished, edited minute.

Why not use this for your personal NatAblWritMon, or National Album Writing Month?

If authors everywhere are going to devote at least twenty hours over the next month to creating their masterpiece 50,000 word novel, then why can’t we do something special and create an awesome song or something?

 

So, here’s the challenge (if you’re not doing NaNoWriMo)… devote a certain amount of time each day to crafting that master song.

 

 

How You Might Use That Part of the Day Might Include

  • Improvising/Jamming Out/Freestyling with your Instrument of Choice
  • Consulting Music Theory books and sources to implement new ideas into your music
  • Mastering  a certain transition (say, from chord to chord) in your natural playing so that you can implement them in your freestyle and therefore into your song
  • Calling (and then E-mailing) your particular music idol to create your song
  • Modeling other songs to make your song… (preferably to make your song better than there’s)
  • Take drugs… for the remaining eighteen hours after you master your best-selling hit in the first two

 

If it takes an author 2 hours to crank out 5,000 words, then it means that it takes the author 20 hours (not including breaks) to crank out 50,000 words. So, with that in mind, let’s do something crazy and devote 5 hours to your music—specifically your next hit song—and continually add (or better yet, take away) components and modules with the song to make it better.

That’s about 43 minutes  a day to making this one hit song super good… or 1 hour a day if you exclude weekends. I prefer writing daily (as you’ll see on this blog).

 

Happy Songwriting! (This post could make you rich)

Where Do We Go To Learn More About The Best Software on the Market Today?

Good to know where to learn about the best software, because when you access the right websites,  you’ll always stay up to date and never miss out on potentially critical updates on the software you employ in your work.

 

To learn most about the best software available, visit propellerhead.se and Youtube.com/reasonmastaa. These two sources will give you the best information on music software available today (PropellerHead really gives a super unbiased (and substantive!) description on various elements and principles incorporated in the music software! I think that they make such great software BECAUSE of how deeply they write about their software.)

Other resources include Fruity Loops’s YouTube channel. Ableton’s IN-SOFTWARE tutorial (which I appreciate and find bad-ass).

 

NeuroPlasticize: Research at ten different aspects of the software… especially from the software developer’s website and experts with their own YouTube channels.

What Would Happen If You Made Your Music Better and Better… Not Perfect? (Plus: Music Theory)

This question results from a business-based home-study course titled, How to Build a Profitable Business from Scratch by Eben Pagan. You’ll find this important because he demonstrates how people ruin their ability to develop because of their perfectionistic attitudes on the world of meeting needs and building products and marketing.

If only people would focus on improvement, then people would skyrocket their ability to craft and produce beautiful, da Vinci (or Michael Jackson) level music. I say this with absolute certainty, because everything I applied this “Better and Better” method too (including music) has doubled, tripled and quadrupled in quantity quality.

 

What happened with me when I used this? With music, I now play for fifteen to fifty minutes every day at a rather advanced level (chord progressions and scale-oriented melodies in harmony with each other)–where I used to only play for ten minutes at a really crappy level.

If that’s not a shift in the quality of life and the music we create, then  I don’t know what is.

 

To proselytize yourself from the clogged cog world of perfectionism, go for “Great” by asking, “What could I do better,” instead of “Why can’t I make this perfect?”

 

Run: Ask yourself this question right now and, when you go out in the world, for whatever purpose, ask yourself this wheneveryou’ll enjoy your life about fifty times better–especially within the context of whatever you focus on.
