It happens to everybody. I want to share with you a struggle that we all experience: beatblock. We’ve all experienced those moments when opening up our DAW of choice (I’m an FL warrior personally) feels daunting, and inspiration seems to elude us. Fear not, friends! I’ve put together a list that helps me overcome my creative block and find inspiration. Let’s get started and let those beats flow again!
Make an arpeggio that outlines a chord progression
To start a new project, I like to create an arpeggio that is based on chord progressions. Begin by creating the chord bass notes and then build on that. Try different intervals, note variations and octaves to create a melody you like. You can add complexity by adding extended chords, such as 7th, 13th, and 9th. Do not hesitate to add additional chords on top of the arpeggio or use granulizers to create a bit of chaos. As an example, I’ve used a simple chord progression. You can also read about how to get in touch with us. Minor C Major You can also find out more about the D Major G. major. You can play with different intervals by going up in fourths and fifths to create a cool sound.
