A few criticisms- I appreciate the dedication to getting into music quickly, without hanging out thinking you aren't ready ahead of time, but I would suggest some level of Music Theory training. The author does mention that he figured out a few block chords and was Off to the Races after that, but I think that little bit was critical for him and he doesn't emphasize that enough. There's a big gap between being a classically trained musician and a a producer who knows some music theory, the latter being pretty easy to obtain. Just a little bit of theory can go a long long way and it helps a lot collaborating with other artists. I recommend the book Music Theory for Computer Musicians as a supplementary text.
Another thing I have to mention is there are a bunch of typos in the Kindle version of this book. Not a big deal at all but a bit distracting.
Overall this is an amazing body of work and should be quickly read and digested by anyone looking to break some barriers and get yourself going. Loved it!
There has never been a time when the single musician — producer, artist, or amateur — has had more tools at his or her disposal. Or more ways to waste time in search of the "perfect" set up, or set of plug-ins, or the Next Big Thing. Timothy cuts right through this clutter to the heart of what makes great music, or any great art. Which is: Put Your Butt In The Chair. Know Where you're going. Or, as he says, "get off the sidelines."
If you have the itch to watch another tutorial, do yourself a favor: step away from the computer and read this book.
Stay off the sidelines is great topic: about the relation between fears and not being able to finish a song. Jason shows how to get loud about what you love and how to finish songs.
I just decided to enter the spotlights; I still have fears, but I do it anyway, now....
You may listen to the result of following Jason for a few months, (before this I only recorded bassguitar oriented tunes, but I didn't share):
Feel free to give me advice , I know I have a lot to learn.
I believe this book is a great resource not only for a beginning producer but it is also a great reminder of the vital aspects of music production for a more seasoned one. It also served as a nice motivational boost for myself.
