In this set of videos, you're going to get a full overview of how to create a track from scratch, with nothing but a mouse and computer keyboard. You'll learn quite a few techniques and workflow tips to speed up your creative process, regardless of your experience level, beginner to advanced. You get to follow along with a major label record producer as you build out bass lines, drum parts, chords, melodies and more. The best part is that you get a downloadable copy of the Ableton project and you can use 100% of the content in anyway you please, whether just for learning, or to build your own song from.

Lesson topics include:

  • Starting the Song: Drums and Bass
  • Adding a Harmony
  • Adding a B Section to the Song
  • Adding an Arpeggiated Melody
  • Arranging and Automating
  • Arranging the Second Verse
  • Creating the Outro
