So uh… it’s been forever since I’ve been on here and I just wanna say I’ve lost all motivation to make music lol. Anyone have any tips/food for thought to help me get motivated again? I really miss making happy hardcore but just…can’t do it properly anymore.
Welcome back! I know how it feels to be stuck, here’s my advice from another thread!
I know it can be hard, but I promise it’s worth it!
Thank you so much!
Do you want to collaborate on something or I’ll just send you a project and you can do whatever you want with it? https://app.auxy.co/projects/v7vH_Yc_Jl6CduX0rSKLYA== Here take this
Go listen to different genres, different artists, try and replicate them, try writing in an unfamiliar genre, invent your own genre, many possibilities.
Sadly that’s what I’ve been trying to do, hasn’t really worked ):
I remember you
Glad ur back
I’ll be on and off honestly as music is a side hobby I’ve lost motivation to do, but hopefully spending time here will give me motivation
https://app.auxy.co/projects/hqtDJLOtBtrQ5n7sdJUMyw== This is what I came up with
Honestly just start producing. When I’m not very motivated it usually isn’t actually that I don’t have any ideas, I just am lazy or don’t think my ideas or good enough, so I don’t even try to produce. Often times if I actually try, I can get motivated as I get started.
I feel like I should say that when making a song I don’t know what I should make first. The bass? The background melody? The drums?
Whatever you want, then try to add elements that work around it
I feel like you do a lot. But do you know what I don’t do? I don’t stop.
Try pushing yourself to use longer and more complex chord progressions, or instruments that you never utilize. It makes for a fun challenge with a good result.
Also hi it’s been a millennia welcome back
@BobTheGUYYYYY I feel like I need to work w/someone directly— if you don’t mind could I talk to you on discord? I love ur style of music a lot and we already kinda know each other lol
Only make music when you have an idea fresh in your head. It would sound better and it would be more true to yourself. Maybe you still need a break.
Writers block doesn’t just go away. Inspiration may come randomly but you have to work through it and improve yourself
