So you think you want to produce music? See if this video bores you to tears or excites you, okay? I think every musician should know a little bit about production for lots of reasons.

I have just a few tracks the most important tracks that I always use in the track like a lead a bass drums guitar and that kind of stuff. Then I like to combine different ideas together by for example playing this clip this piano clip with this guitar clip with this lead synth clip.
