Making beats for a song is not that hard if you know where to begin and that is why I am going to show you how you will start and how you will finish. The beats are like a building. You will know how to build a foundation and how you can then mesh in everything to make the all round beats you hear.
You can do it with the right tools that will include a basic metronome and other instruments that will help you get everything just right. So, let’s begin with the first steps and work our way up the music ladder.
Basic Beat Building
This is the first thing that you will use. It will be a metronome and or a click track which means that it will be used to pace the beats and keep the tempo in check. Once you have gotten the hang of that, you will then pace it to make sure that it is moving at a speed you are comfortable with.
The Drum Beat Building
The drums come in second and they too can be paced to move with the metronome or click track. The drums are basically the frame upon which you build the rest of the track. That way, you will be able to have a definitive sound that will not lose touch or get ahead of itself.
The drum sound can be downloaded in a pack from the internet and then you can continue working on them to create a special sound. A good example would be the Led Zeppelin Drum Sample.
This one forms a large part of the beats and how they will sound when you are done with them. That is why you will have to use them to create the synthesized sound that will be used to get the melody and percussion into clear play. The bass is the one that people follow when dancing.
Try the Sounds and Melodies
These are the ones that will be used to accentuate the lyrics. The sounds are so many and the only way you can find the perfect sound is by trying as many of them as possible unit you find the sound that meshes well with the drums and the basic beats.
Listen to all the great beat makers and learn how they do what they do and then use it for your own song without sounding the same. Use your own voice, distort it, build tension and then let the beat drop at the right moment.
