How to Make Good Beats   -   Tips To Ensure That You Never Run Out Of Hot Ideas Again!

Understanding and learning how to make good beats is a quality that you can and will acquire over time, so don't go thinking that just because your beats suck now, that they will always suck...

Every producer that you hear on the radio today had to start somewhere, whether it be a curiosity with playing their church's piano, or some friend down the street had a drum machine that the whole neighborhood would come by and play with. The point is, Timbaland wasn't always Timbaland when he first started out, neither was DJ Premier, nor was any other great super producer that firstly comes to your mind. And so as it will be with you.

Well, if you're just starting out with music production, or even if you're not new to the art of music production within itself, I would like to share with you about 5 tips that will give your beats that beast mode juice that you'll need to ensure that your tracks always stay fresh, and that those energy levels within your beats are always high'ed up, spaced out, and funky. Word to Curren$y.

Up Your Musical IQ

The best way that I believe that you can do this, is by staying current with ALL types of music and how produced it, in all genres, but especially within the genre that you are interested in making your own productions in. There's alot to be learned from producers who produce popish Brittney Spears' type tracks, as well as someone like Just Blaze who is straight up hip hop. Learning, listening to, and studying all types of productions and tracks will develop your own production ear to help you deliver different types of beats with all kinds of fused genres intertwined, to make tracks that are totally dope an all your own.

Making good hip hop beats is all about being innovative and hard core, and offering something cool to the world that has never been heard before. That's how we keep it moving within our hip hop culture! So get to it with studying and collecting music from all different genres, and you'll see that your beats will benefit from your efforts. Eargasms!

Beats Rhymes and Life

Man, I can't express to you enough the importance of collaborating with other producers in your area or online; you absolutely, positively have to make those connections. Everybody knows somebody, that knows somebody, that knows something bout it; so keep making those connections in your neighborood at the clubs, letting the DJ's know that you produce, as well as connecting with producers and artists on Twitter and Facebook, as well as on the online forums.

Social is the way to go for anything that you're trying to be successful with these days, so just do what you already do on a daily basis, get on that Iphone, Ipad, Android, or laptop, and socialize! You may be one connection away from meeting Diddy himself, and the rest of your life and your production career as you know it will never be the same. Not to mention you could meet collaborators who specialze in different areas of production, like you may be dope at flipping samples, but your partner is a beast on the piano. THAT combination could make for some naaaasty hip hop productions.

Make this production thing a way of life for yourself. Live it, breathe it, walk it and talk it. Soon you'll see for yourself that by doing things this way, you'll be well on your way to winning in absolutely no time at all. I know you have it in you, now use these tips to start getting to that money... Thank me Later just like Drake said. Better beats ahead.
