A micro-tutorial.  Learn two simple Ableton key commands that open up a whole new world of arrangement.  Find out how to get the most out of Session View, what makes Ableton completely unique and awesome!

It's an Ableton Project with a built-in tutorial, my specialty.

This one shows you how to put a song together in Session View where you can improvise, jam live, and explore all the possible combinations of your loops -- without having to cut & paste in the timeline.

Nobody else is building guided lessons like these, you have to see for yourself.  Light years beyond watching videos, you actually learn by DOING IT!


LIVE VIDEO WORKSHOP

This happens every month -- it's called "how to escape the 8-bar loop". I show you how to build a complete song in Session View using the song form hacks and a few more tricks for making tracks.  Different music every time so we both get lots of creative ideas. The live interaction is the fun part!
