How do you kind of get that feedback? Or do you fall asleep? Listen to it in the morning. Um, so you know, back when I did that wrapping stuff, I probably would have put it on the Internet if I had a chance. That's the best thing he had ever made at the time. And I don't regret any song I've ever made. Um, but that doesn't mean I'm not going to take it down like it was definitely part of the process. Um, and usually I don't take it down. I just make the song private. So, uh, I personally will always have it there for the rest of my life to know what I was doing back then. And yeah, you ask a lot of producers, especially especially people that are just, you know, they're making a full song all by themselves on their computer. It's a lot of just making shitty songs and just guessing and checking and going back and going back and redoing it. It's, um it's really part of it. Making a shitty song is the best thing you can do for yourself. Because it's a great car. I'm gonna cut you, man. like I the There's two. There's two things like you can make. You can be up till two in the morning making this song and you're like, Okay, time to go to bed and then you wake up the next day and you're like, All right, will this still sound good? What happens? And sometimes it does. And sometimes it doesn't. And you're like, Wow, I just spent six hours of my night last night. I'm gonna delete this whole thing, and it's like, That sucks. But, you know, it's part of it. It really is. Over the years, I've really learned how to finish the song and how to know if it's good or not. Because in the past, you know, years ago when I would learn a new skill make an actual decent song like, Oh, my God, this is so cool. I'm gonna put this on soundcloud right now and then, like, three months later, like, dude, what the hell is that? And you're like, Oh, I forgot the ending. So, um, what I've been really forcing myself to do is take your time. Like if you're tired, man, don't stop, You know, or if you if you're working on. I think if you're working on the same song for three or four hours, I really think you need a break. Because after that, long after hearing that same loop over and over again, you stop even hearing the song. You're you're not even hearing it anymore. And you don't even know if it's good or not. So I really try to either switch between songs maybe two hours in this song, two hours on this song or I just go to bed and I wake up. I'm like, Okay, let's see how this this is a good stopping point. Let's see how this sounds in the morning And then even then when I've completely finished the song Okay, the songs as good as good I love as Good as you can get. I love it. Mhm. Don't don't finish it Just seriously walk away for two weeks, then come back. Is this done? And so I've surprised myself. I'm like, Oh my God, no, I could I can make this better. And so it's all about stepping away for a little bit. And then if you come back after two weeks, you know, like, yeah, I can't do anything to this, then Then it's done and you
