How to Make Instrumentals–And All Content–Twice As Deep, Twice As Connectable (A Mountain-Moving Way to Make Instrumentals)

As we said in the other post on “How to Double the Amount of Time People Listen to You,” when you think of the things you’d never want to have happen to you or a loved one, you’ll have content that people will pay you money for.

Considering terrible, emotionally degrading thoughts while developing your music can create that certain feel to your music that people will love. When you make instrumentals along the lines you’ll see here, you’ll create a work that others will download and work with time and time and time again.

 

For example, Johnny Cash wrote the song “Hurt,” (not an instrumental…but still moving…the instruments themselves convey the emotion described in the lyrics and tonality of Mr. Cash).

In the song, he explains and magnifies what really matters in life…by illustrating the guilty and more apathetic components of life.

The cool thing is that he illustrates a deep love for humanity in the guilty, sorrowful tonality– noting that giving (when he says, “You can have it all—my own pile of dirt”) is the best thing we do, because the people we’ve hurt deserve it (and they deserve so muc h more than we can ever give them…the love runs deep in this song).

And he illustrates his love through feelings of hurt from what others of done, hurt for loss of those he’s loved, hurt in his forlorness in that life is gone sooner or later, and hurt in that he’s become someone he hasn’t wanted to become…someone who’s hurt.

By showing the things we don’t want to have happen to us, we simultaneously represent the existence of the better side of things in its contrast, which is part of what makes songs (and what will make instrumentals you right) so very beautiful.

I, personally, love it in every way possible for a person to love a song, songwriter, and performer.

Other people love this as well (Youtube shows 40+ million views as I write this) .

With your emotion, your thinking on the opposite realm from happy and all-things-good, people will embrace and connect very deeply with your music.

(A funny story here. I heard the Nine Inch Nails version first, so when I heard the Johnny Cash original in a trailer for a video game called Prototype 2, I thought some guy had ripped off Trent Reznor’s amazing song…lol! How off I was!)

The video works so well with it as well…which is what you want your song to be able to do with ads/movies/etc. for big-time deals, in certain cases.

 

Try to keep those sad, infuriating, hope-extinguishing thoughts in the front of your mind while writing and performing these instrumentals. It’s good to have a little darkness in your work.

 

If you keep these thoughts in mind while working your work, creating this piece, this art you want to give the world, people will feel you at the deepest level possible.

Let me ask you this. What if you could connect with people at the deepest levels of their existence, their humanity? What would it do for your career? What would it do for your soul, your level of being when you paint such moving feelings and images–when you make instrumentals that sweep the feet of others in a very dramatic way?

By doing what’s described above, your audience (and those outside of your audience, probably) will connect with you and appreciate your work so much.

We all look forward to hearing your work, friend.

Talk soon!

  5. You’ll be able to modify every little thing using the integrated 16 channel mixer which has mute & solo tracks. The equipment needed to create beats before software and programs was costly, and no producer wanted to sell his beats for cheap. Absolutely no reason to purchase beats when you’re able to create
    them at no cost on your computer.
