Music Video on How to Make Beats: Laying Down Basic Music Ideas by TaurusBeats

I like to make Moody Instrumental Music on Saturday mornings. Sometimes, I start out the morning with playing around on the keyboard until I play a chord or melody that catches me and inspires me to develop more of a song. I call this my exploration and discovery process for making music.

Since I don't start with any musical pieces in my head (the way I normally do), I just make time to "explore" and "discover" music using this method. Rather than try to develop entire song ideas using this method, I just try to get the basic parts - the "foundation" - of a song captured in Propellerhead Reason. This way, I can always come back to the track later and develop it.

In this video, watch how I start out with two very basic 4-note piano chords and build a basic song idea. The bass and drums are added to the piano to create a "chill" song idea - something to lounge to on a nice Saturday morning.

The end of the video catches some of my improvisation on the basic idea. Usually, when I improv or "freestyle" on the track (with the piano) I can develop a real feel for the song idea, making it easier to build a complete song later.

Military Spouses check out the Inc. Military Entrepreneurs Program

As a civilian male military spouse, I am constantly searching for resources and helpful information about employment and entrepreneurship to pass on to other military spouses.

Military Spouses should check out the Inc. Military Entrepreneurs Program.

Finished My First Official 5K Race - Run Lucky 5K in OKC

I started running back in the Fall of 2011. My wife runs marathons and half marathons, and she had been trying to get me to run for quite some time. I figured that I'll never do a marathon, but the 5K was doable. When I found out that her dad and brother had started running to train for races, I thought that would be a cool challenge.

I thought the Run Lucky 5K was going to be a rainy, miserable race this year. But the rains stopped in time. The weather was perfect for running at just under 50 degrees and cloudy enough to keep away the sun's heat. Here are my official 5K race results.

Official results:

  • Overall finish: 151/606
  • Age Division finish: 16/61 (40)
  • Gun Time: 25:27
  • Pace: 5:06
  • Chip Time: 24:37
  • Bib #: 1033
