Neil Finn, I recently read, writes his songs by recording himself improvising to a drum beat (from a drum machine) then listening over it all and picking out the best ideas.
This was my first incorporation of Neil Finn’s technique. I created two beats on my ultrabeat player on Logic, gave ‘em 20 or so bars each, and away I went. Twenty three minutes in, having produced nothing of note, I hit on the following idea (the drum beat at the beginning was edited out for a tastier staggered entry).
I’m thinking it has potential. What do you reckon?
