Are You A Beatmaker? HELP! *PAID JOB*

Post by bonboncito »

PAID JOB!

Do you watch Timbaland's Beat Club?

**Have you submitted a beat to Timbaland's Beat Club on Twitch?**

Do you make your own samples?

Do you know about sonic selection? Building a catalog of sounds?

Do you know about hi-hat spacing? Low-end kicks? What makes a snare sound "good?"

If so... I need you to teach me!

I am a musician who would like to learn to make beats and write songs that Timbaland would think are fire.

Here is an example of a beatmaker that Timbaland loves: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5F6IO8Ck44A

NOTE: I am a complete beginner to beatmaking, production, songwriting, DAWs and everything. I am currently taking jazz and Afro-Cuban piano classes, though.

I need a beatmaking and music production instructor who will be available for weekly Zoom lessons.

My favorite beatmakers include Large Professor, The Cool Kids, Daddy-O ("the Quincy Jones of hip hop," crafted the beat for "Real Love" and "Top Billin"), Dr. Luke, Missy Elliott, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, Prince, Dr. Dre, DJ Mustard, and Danja... besides Timbaland!

Can you show me the way to creating great beats? Please help if so. Thank you!

PAY: affordable rate for weekly lessons

You could start with having a shufti at this page: https://samplecraze.com/about-eddie-bazil/
Eddie is a regular SoS contributor, forum member here (Zukan), and comes very highly recommended.

Cool! Thank you -- quick question: what is a "shufti?" How to get in touch with Eddie?

Shufti = colloquial English meaning 'take a quick look at'

In my world, things get less strange when I read the manual...

Armed with that information Hugh, the OP could be a "mill-yo-nair" next year.

Shufti:
1940s (originally military slang): from Arabic šāfa ‘try to see’.

Ooh, I do love a bit of etymology with me elevenses.
