so, last year i realized i'm approaching 50 and thought about how my life would have been as an artist.
i went to the store, bought a roland jd-xi, went to another store and bought an insane amount of beer, and after the beer was gone, this is what was my first real composition:

The fat synth sounds a little too fat. Like a little too loud. Sometimes less is more. Also, when you have a lot of sound going on, sidechaining the drums can be good. I've been kind of obsessing over sidechaining.

Good for you! Go for it man. Stick with it.

Got some nice sounds on this. I like the clean lead just before it cuts out...

Maybe chase a bull instead... ;)
