“Step 3)  You should feel at ease…”



Feeling at ease can help greatly
Ensure you feel at ease in the environment you are composing in, and with the instruments you are using to compose and record with.

It makes sense that you should feel at ease with your instruments and recording environment BEFORE you start composing.

Notice how the performers seem at ease yet extremely competent  in this videoand the singers in this video.


Practical Exercise for Step 3)

Emphasis is on experiencing the importance of feeling very comfortable and at ease in your recording environment and with your instruments.

Sit or stand next to your instruments and recording gear. Start using each one like you would in real life. Go through the motions of what you would actually do with it until you become familiar with it and at ease.

You’ll know when you have reached the result intended. Familiarity and ease around an instrument like you have been using it, or playing, or recording with it for years.

End Result
After doing the above you should feel comfortably at ease, and feel more in harmony with your instruments, your recording gear and environment, and ready to create a song.
