    So I am now on vacation and after a long morning + afternoon of writing articles and setting up web 2.0 properties, I opened up FL studio and tried to work out a simple song.

    I used Hotel California acappela and everything else is made by me. I know that most of you guys aren't really music experts, but I think everyone likes music, so let me know what do you think (and forgive me for the free advertising, I'm not gaining any shit with this, just wondering if it's good or it's just me :eek:)

    Wow, thanks! I have my own workout collection, but it's mainly uplifting rock songs that remind me of crazy concerts I went, but I guess that house music would work as well :D

    I've been using it since it was named Fruity Loops, but that was just to make some simple (and I mean it) beats, just some kicks, hats and a 4 note lead :D

    At this level, only a few months ago, but I learned a lot in the past two days from spending several hours watching youtube tutorials and stuff. If you're just starting, I would recommend you to watch some tutorials covering the basics and then just start practicing.

    Start of with a simple beat, then a bassline, then some melody, set things up with some crashs/reverse crashes to give it some variety and you're good to go :)

    Good beat - to me it didn't seem like they totally complimented each other.
    But hey, I liked it!

    I liked everything from 2 minutes 36 seconds onwards.
