227 - Class Act

Day 227. After yesterday's daily create of some fairly funky music with a heavy downbeat and bassline, offset with synth and wahwah guitar, I realised that I often use the same kind of approach to writing music in GarageBand. Start with drums, lay down the bass track, then build up with guitars or keys or more drums. Today I wanted to try building a music track in a completely different way, since part of the daily create process is about trying new things and not falling into the trap of doing things the same way every time. Mix it up. Do the opposite.

So in this track I didn't use drums and bass at all, instead starting with strings, and building the sound in layers. Its different and I quite like it.
