How do I properly send an email or letter to a label or producer to get them to listen to your songs? – Luke (0:42)
I could be wrong, but it seems to me my musical strength resides in that what makes me weak as a human being: my suffering, my “pathos”, which I try to convert in my music. Still, my sister, who happens to be my closest confident, says my lyrics lack a silver lining. She often feels like I’m asking for the listener to “cry with me” instead of learning something from my suffering. So my first question for you is: how to make my songs more joyful, more universal, more “bankable” I guess? – Ghali (3:48)
Secondly, I must admit I have trouble keeping a steady rhythm when I play music. Often I find myself, changing the tempo from the first chorus to the second, and never is the tempo similar when I play the song just a couple days apart. That’s pretty bad, isn’t it? How can I fix that? – Ghali (6:24)
Finally, I heard you say in one of your videos that every artist should be his own producer, otherwise he would never make it. My final question is: where do I acquire the knowledge of a sound engineer? I’m trying to use cubase but I’m having a hard time even doing the simplest things, let alone adding a drum line. – Ghali (10:24)
Do the notes you play have anything to do with an artist tapping into his song writing zone?cause on certain beats I tap in real fast and others i don’t know how to begin writing?? how do I constantly start writing on any instrumental without hesitation? what’s the key to this?? – ??? (12:19)
I’m Friedemann Findeisen, a creative weirdo from the middle of nowhere. I love making things, learning things and helping people. If I don’t make, I get restless. If I don’t learn, I feel empty. If I don’t help, I feel ungrateful. Good things have happened when I managed to balance all three.
In the past, I’ve been a magician, public speaker, music video director, songwriter, producer, board game designer, author, publisher, YouTuber, music profiler, illustrator, musician and film composer.
