Song in Progress: How it starts

I was asked how I start writing a music track, so thought I’d post an example. Like all the others, this song starts as an idea I throw into Ableton Live, my digital audio workstation (DAW) of choice. Since I can’t really play an instrument, I have to depend on the drawing tools in whatever DAW I’m using at the time to “draw” out my idea. From here, I expand and add layers of instruments.

Still learning mixing and mastering which is an art all to itself…
