Hey, whats going on? Awsome video. I understand this message looks like spam! However, I'm a music producer/songwriter and what I'm wanting to do is get people to check out my music, subcribe to my channel, watch, and like my videos. Visit If you can. I take my job very seriously, and I'm determined to shape the masses as well as supply dope music. I'm searching for artists and other songwriters as well! I love what I do and I'm hoping you'll enjoy it too. If anyone wants to use my beats for their videos or anything promotional, it is free to do so! visit or simply just message me through youtube. Do not forget to subscribe! Check out my videos!

That was fantastic- very helpful Thanks a lot!. But to start making the music for the song, what instruments do u think I need? Like speakers, mic, etc…?

This is super helpful! Thanks for posting this. I'm in the middle of writing 100 songs in 100 days on my channel and have a few tips of my own if anyone's interested. I’d love to hear anyone else’s personal tips as well.

1. Don't give up on songs too early! In forcing myself to finish a song a day, I've had many songs that I would've trashed halfway through if I didn't set this deadline, and have been pleasantly surprised with all of them. Any finished song is infinitely better than a half finished song that was never finished.
2. Set some constraints! The hardest essays have no prompts. Force yourself to include a certain word or phrase in your lyrics, common or uncommon. Force yourself to write a chorus with only 3 words. Force yourself to use a concept you heard in another song, or to finish a song in a day. Constraints require you to come up with ideas you would have never thought of otherwise and facilitate creativity.
3. And some random "writer's block" tips: try moving things around (switch lines in the chorus, make the first verse the second verse); exercise and eat a small snack (5-10 minute walk and peanuts will do) and come right back to it; ask songwriter friends for advice and opinions, and ALWAYS return the favor!

Let me know if you have any tips, and thanks again for this video!
