I recommend learning any instrument. Just learn anything that you don't already know how to play. That may get you inspired- I often simply fool around on the instruments I doknow how to play, without paying any attention to actual stuff like notes and whatever...and then voila--> New song idea.

This is only a suggestion that has worked in the past... because I still have this music block thing, too ;__;

Or listen to a lot of music by many different artists to get inspiration, explore new genres and find new music.
And then fap.

Listen to different music, try to take note of the patterns then trying to make an original piece using the pattern you've noticed.

And don't fap afterwards. It makes it very awkward for some reason.

Nonsense. Piano is quite obviously superior to all other instruments. Learn that.

Jokes aside, I agree that any instrument will do but for practicality's sake, I'd still recommend learning piano if you haven't already. Apart from the fact that it's an amazing and versatile instrument, learning how to play the piano will make it easier if you ever buy a MIDI keyboard.

I know tonnes of people who use a MIDI keyboard just fine and they don't know how to play piano, but of course knowing piano will make the process a lot smoother and allow you to play more complicated stuff than standard chords in the left hand and a melody in the right.

That's just my advice though, quite obviously biased since piano's my favourite instrument. There's a tonne of instruments to choose from (most generally not as expensive as a piano) and learning how to play any one of them may be really rewarding, relaxing and make you think of some great ideas without mouse-clicking even once.

when school happens, about 5 a day.

i'm starting to try a 3 hour sleep cycle though.

sleep for 3 hours, stay awake for 6-8 hours. sleep another 3 hours, stay up for another 1 hour. so forth and so one.

I've always noticed that I feel amazing after a 3 hour nap.

When there's no school? A full 8 - 10 hours. However, when there IS school, it varies very much according to the workload (but it's a lot smaller due to a lot of a work and waking up at 6:00 AM), but I've had to stay up all night to finish my work on numerous occasions, and back when I had an average of 5 hours of Maths homework a day, I used to call 1:00 AM an early night.

Just came across this site called music-bazaar and they seem to be selling almost every album I've released without permission.

You guys might want to check it out make sure you're not being sold as well without permission. Seems they take a lot of creative common releases and try and sell them without the artist knowing.

That's bad. There are quite a lot of these sites that upload creative commons songs without permission. Though most don't ask for money to download them. They just make money from pushy adverts. I don't know who you can contact about these kind of sites. A lawyer probably if you want to go that far. I think most people who want to download your songs know you offer them for free, and won't pay this scam site.

"The use of musical components and creations realizes under contract with the legal owners or representatives of the rights (heirs, record-labels, producers etc). These kinds of contracts are usually signed by the administration of www.music-bazaar.com website or authoritative agency âEUoeMEDIA AGENTâEU.

Despite all that, the Russian legislation provides us the opportunity of fee transferring via the authors and performers society. In our agreement there is a condition which forbids using a website services in case the legislation of the country of user contradicts with laws of Russian Federation.

At the moment we have already signed contracts with many artists, major music labels and a Russian AuthorâEUTMs Society (which represents the rights of Greek legal owners on Russian territory)."

It's always them Russians

Could anyone possibly help me out and tell me where the hell I can get this certain moan sound effect? You can find it here at about the 14 - 15 second mark. I swear, I've heard it ages ago on old school electronic keyboards on their FX settings. I recently listened to another song that used that effect, or something similar to it, and it just sent waves of nostalgia through me. It'd be neat if I could find it and experiment with it in songs and stuff.

And for the sake of relatively trying to stay on topic, the amount of sleep I get can range from 9 hours to 45 minutes, depending on the day and what I was doing before I slept/crashed. For an average, I'd guess I get about 5 hours.


INJECT yourself with some of these TOXic tunes! Get it, because tox-...I'm sorry:

Poly Relationships: A currently unfolding event:

So I feel like I learned a lot last night about the world and stuff. Unfortunately I'm too hungover to remember any of it. I woke up in someone else's bed, next to someone else's girlfriend, and I left wearing someone else's shirt. The best part is : they were all totally cool with it.

Seriously though, it was my favorite shirt and I really want it back...
