I have recently been doing a new daily activity where I would watch videos about the “inside tricks” to using a plugin or synth from my favorite DAW.
Once I got a general understanding of it, I would try to first mimic what the video was showing so that I could get a better grasp at the concepts. Then, I would go off on my own, using the momentum I got from becoming more proficient with the DAW’s tools since watching the video.
Sometimes, you may not know how to do something, and that could be the wall that is blocking you from creating that awesome piece of music you want to write. By doing research in a library, reading blogs, watching videos, or asking professionals, you gain more knowledge as well as confidence to take on your artistic pursuit!
Don’t ever be ashamed for not knowing; instead, be ashamed for not taking the steps to learn.
Use the momentum and excitement you gain when watching an instructional video to create your own – simply that!
