I want you to create an arrangement without ever touching an instrument. I want to you rely entirely on your imagination.
Red Carpet Blues Let me explain a little more. Our creative brains are far less critical than our conscious minds.
We imagine things that sound good to us. Often when we pick up our instruments, ego starts to get involved. Before you picked up your instrument, you cared nothing about the complexity.
When you begin to play, your conscious mind tries to take over and steer the ship. It just needs to be something you like. Ahhh, it feels good to be free. Your creative mind knows no limitations. It requires trust in yourself. It requires that you respect your own creativity. Remember, our instruments are only the vessel to deliver our ideas.
The ideas are what counts. The technique is only there to facilitate the ideas. There are also some cool, simple multitrack apps for iPad and iPhone. Microphones require setting up. You just want to record your ideas as quickly as possible. Some producers and musicians get it backward.

But at some point, I wanted to get the music out there, so I started working on it harder, and eventually I could sing and write lyrics better.
