Free Form is fun to experiment with as there it features no rigid structure. You can write however you want, whatever you want. The danger with Free Form is that you’ve still got to ensure that there is enough melodic “ear candy” or motif usage so that the listener will have something to grab onto and remember your work.
It can be used across so many genres of music, shown below on Oskar Offermann’s track, “Find Yourself.” He uses the Space Echo on the vocals and it seems to also be used on a lot of the percussion.

Your narrative probably won’t come together in one sitting. So as a first step, get out a piece of paper and do some brainstorming on the following questions. A good narrative, like any great story, has a beginning, middle, and end. To get ideas, think about where you started and where you want to end up.
Slap sounds are played similarly to a tone. Put your hand on the edge of the drum, but instead of playing with a flat hand, you curve your fingers lightly. The contact area is limited to the edge of the palm and the fingertips. The other difference is that your hands rebound immediately after a strike, so the contact time with the skin is as short as possible. Slap tones produce more of a ‘crack’ and a bright sound, but you’ll also notice a little bass resonance. Your hand should bounce off the drumhead so that the fingertip pads flick quite sharply on and off the surface with a slap. The pocket of space under the palm gives it a hollow sound.
For this course, you really just need to know enough about mixing that you know you need to learn more. If you’ve ever struggled to communicate with a mix engineer in order to get the sound you’re looking for, or listened to your own tracks and been unable to pinpoint exactly what you need to do to improve your sound, this is the course for you.

Once you’ve got something you like, try shifting it out of your normal speech pitch pattern by using steps (one note up or down), skips (a third up or down) or a leap (a fourth or more) between words.
Amplifiers do a huge amount to both bring out and shape your guitar’s signature sound. They are often just as important, if not sometimes more important than the build of the guitar itself. This guide is meant to help you out if you’re new to buying equipment to hone your guitar sound. And if that’s the case, you’re going to need to pick an amp that fits appropriately within the sonic particularities of your genre.
Following one of the first major hip-hop settlements between De La Soul and The Turtles in 1989, Biz Markie was sued over his hit single “Alone Again.” Markie’s song samples the piano chords from Gilbert O’Sullivan’s “Alone Again (Naturally)” and uses the same lyrical hook. Markie’s record label initially tried to get the rights to “Alone Again (Naturally),” but when O’Sullivan refused, the label released the song anyway. Markie was in turn found guilty of copyright infringement.
If you’ve got friends in a town you’re touring, don’t forget to tell them! Also, if you post to Facebook that you’ve got x amount of hours in x city, you may have old friends you had forgotten about come out of the woodwork. Maybe that person you knew from high school will want to take you out and show you their town.
“[This] might sound a bit subjective, but the most valuable thing I learned was how to be more sensible about the emotion that every type of chord can produce, and not only a single chord, but in the context of a chord progression by how each chord note moves to the next.”
