How To Create Funky, Original Beats

Posted in by admin on the June 8th, 2011

Nowadays, anyone wanting to mix up his or her own original beats and rhythms for dancing or exercise need not have access to a full-fledged multitrack studio or even expensive home equipment. All you really need is an internet connection, some inspiration, and a feel for the funk.

A quick internet search on making beats should easily lead you to free or extremely cheap beatbox downloads. Follow the usually simple instructions, and – voila! – your very own home beat-making machine. Now you can start making your own original funky beats. You’ll generally have a few “channels” to layer your beat.Want more?

Play around with different combinations of beats until something starts to “click.” If your program has the option, you can add horns, piano, guitar – whatever you like. You’ll know you’re on the right track when the music makes you feel genuinely exited, and your feet and hips start to move on their own.

(Of course, if you do have an elaborate home studio, by all means use your gadgetry to the utmost, but the creative process remains the same.)
