Whether you’re at the start of your music production journey or you’ve had years of experience already, the endless amount of things to learn, tools to use and creative directions to take can be incredibly exciting…
New gear, new plugins, new sample packs, new trends, old trends, new tutorials, new platforms, new possibilities, the list goes on!
But while all these things can serve as great inspiration for your music, a lot of the time they only lead to one thing, overwhelm.
And when you experience overwhelm, it’s near on impossible to enter creative flow…
Because getting overwhelmed quickly causes stress, anxiety, frustration and procrastination – all the things that stop you from writing great music.
So in this week’s podcast I’m laying out 5 of my essential strategies for you to defeat overwhelm, so that you’re always on track to writing your best music.
And don’t be fooled, this can (and does) happen to music producers of all levels, so make sure to listen carefully so you don’t get caught out.
- A small amount of well chosen tools is going to get the job done better than an overwhelming stack of kit.
- Learn which tools help you to work quickly and intuitively.
- If you want to be a creative, your job is to create.
- Get around the people that can lift you up and show you the way forward.
- If you want to help people make it simple. If you want to confuse them, make it complicated.
