Work In Progress: Making my first EP


#21

Wow dude… You have a nice full set… Did you just connected the keyboard with your laptop?
I am reall excited to hear the music!! :smiley:


#22

Yeah that’s my setup :smiley: I connect the keyboard to my laptop so I can play the virtual instruments. I also connect it to that small red device next to my laptop (audio interface), so I can record myself playing the keyboard.


#23

I’m listening as I type. So far so good. Totally awesome music.


#24

September 3 2017: Keyboard and drums
While figuring out a chord progression on my keyboard, I came up with this arpeggio-style melody that is really fun to play. Enjoy this first clip!

This chord progression is one of my favorites because it sounds a bit unusual. Ever since I started I’ve been making sure that they are interesting and fun for all of the demos, but more on this topic later :grin:

Love it! I really can’t wait to hear what you do with this!


#31

Thank you AJ!


#32

That was soooo nice. You play keyboard soo well! Now i am curious for the song!! :smiley:


#33

Thanks! I’m not that good though, I’ve been learning how to play keyboard by myself for three years now. Online tutorials help a lot haha


#34

Wow thats nice… did you take from udemy?


#35

No, I learned by playing along to tutorials on YouTube, reading about music theory and practising - a lot! :smile:


#36

Wow you have nice grasping capcity. You really get the things faster without classes :slight_smile:


#37

I wouldn’t say faster, but I indeed have no problem with learning things on my own


#38

You know, your beat is funky Rick, you have rythm… just amazing @rickvanmeijel and the way you present and share the making of your song with us is just badass - :notes: very nice my friend :raised_hand:t2:

I prefer self learning a lot of the time too but I don’t have the patience or motivation for a musical instrument.
