Once you get used to your DAW, you will be able to breathe some life into your compositions. Experiment and have fun doing it. Keep writing music, and keep posting. I’m a newbie on AJ as well, still feeling my way around and learning what works and what doesn’t.. Best of luck to you.
Impossible to choose just one – I like too many genres.
It sounds like a great idea to put previews on youtube. It’s still a form of advertising – “Doing business without advertising is like winking at a girl in the dark. You know what you are doing but nobody else does.”
I started banging away at the piano at a very early age. I didn’t have the easiest childhood, so music became a form of escapism, which I could pour my emotions into, (just like a diary.) To this day, every track I compose, has a little bit of my soul in them somewhere.
Whenever inspiration strikes I guess. As a newbie to AJ I would like to aim for 1 or 2 tracks a month or always have one in the queue at least.
