    learned through practice... i know what sounds right together, and i know when sounds are clashing. I don't know notes or chords well, but i know how to push the keys and make it sound nice. Technical things help, but to me, as long as the beat sounds good, then fuck it. Streetwize taught me how to sample, but most everything else was me.

    back in mp3.com days, I dled beats and played their melodies back.. downloaded instrumentals, played their melodies back, note i had no musical knowledge. Shit just came to me. Then i brought a book on it and studied.

    I swear, I used to download beats,l isten for the bassline .. play it, thenthe melodiy, then the second melody, until i got it. lol used to spazz..

    I taught myself FL tho.. I remember the first time i go that bitch... fuckin 3.4... downloaded that shit at like 4am.. made my first beat on there at 5am, lol...

    good ol days.

    i d/eld acid and started making . they werent that nice.. but shit.. i started with some acid dj hiphop loops and samples..

    i thought i was making masterpeices and banign out classics.. when i was fAR from decent..

    took me a minute to progress.. but with time and pateince and hard work.. ive grown so much..

    its up to you to become better.. and learn how to bang out a good beat.. not us..

    its all you.

    peace

    Self taught. Motivated by people who always bullshitted and hated on a ³³³³³. So I took it upon myself to get nicer with this music shit to shut some mouths up. To some thats a fucked up way to be motivated but it has always worked for me.

    It all depends on the person. There is going to be a school taught producer who will reach dr. dre status. Whats more important than how you learn is what you learn. Someone who is selftaught but has no ambition isn't going anywhere - same thing with school taught producers.
    Determination is one of the biggest factors in deciding what makes or breaks any type of producer.

    -O.N.E.
