In this video, I go over a few popular trap songs and explain the music theory behind them! I take a look at Sicko Mode by Travis Scott featuring Drake and Drip Too Hard by Lil Baby. There is a lot of good tips on melodies, chords, and rhythm. Let me know what songs you want me to look at next!

Yessssssssir, thanks for the video. Theory always helps, even if u click the notes in fl. Better to know what u click and how to click to make it sound good, instead of making random decisions and correcting the notes over and over

Samu Kupiainen says:

I have a problem with fl studio while undoing my shit. I can do it once but after that it doesn't work. So i can basicly undo only latest change and i can't go further back. I have tought that this is just an fl studio thing but then on this video i saw you undoing way further back. So what i can do to undo more things than just latest.
