My name's David, and I just wanted to introduce myself. I just purchased David Nahmani's Logic Pro X 10.5 book and am going to go through it chapter by chapter. I'm very nervous and excited and now I'm going to probably overshare, really, in hopes to make some connections to like-minded people as I step forward into making music. I always believe heart speaks to heart.
I'm 35 years old, and well, my mom died 2 months ago today, after a 4 year battle with early onset Alzheimer's. I'm still grieving and I am exhausted. This poem - "A Blessing For One Who Is Exhausted" by John O'Donohue - depicts the current state of my spirit. (It's easy to find on the web but here's a link to the poem that keeps it line breaks intact on a mobile device - https://m.dailygood.org/story/734/a-ble ... o-donohue/
I realized with my Mom's passing, that life is too unpredictable. And so with whatever time I have left, I'd like to do more things I enjoy doing. I've always enjoyed composing music since I was a teen, but I was raised in a pretty strict household with a bully for a Dad, and so I played a religious role to survive. But I kept playing that role, even after I left home, without asking if that's what I want to do. I also got diagnosed with ADHD several years ago, and so I'm learning how to better manage that - so I'm sorry in advance if I forget to reply to a post!
I guess on a whole, I am deeply afraid to try things I enjoy, so this is me stepping out, and any encouragement on this musical journey is much appreciative. I plan to use logic to create some electro-house, but also have some friends with amazing voices - so looking to also use Logic for recording and producing music with them.
I think I might document my journey somewhere, if anything for my sake, so I can remember tips and tricks that are really helpful to me.
Anyways, "Thanks for Listening Children!" (Fallout fans will hear this with Three Dogs voice)
