Join Matt Piper for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Learning Songwriting: Reason.
- There are exercise files associated with this course, and I encourage you to use them to see what techniques I've used in Reason for Songwriting. However, I encourage you even more strongly to experiment with your own song ideas to really assist in digesting these techniques. The exercise files are available by downloading the zip file from this course's page on the website. Simply double-click the zip file to uncompress it. You'll get this folder, called Exercise Files. Inside, I have also included the Reason song files, themselves.
Again, your own song projects are of far more use to you, since my files just pertain to the song I'm building, while yours, of course, will likely be extremely different in genre, instrumentation and spirit. You'll notice I have also included the final mix of the song, as well as the template file that I created in movie one, in chapter one.
