Hey Everybody! How’s it going? Hope you all are awesomely well! I’ve got some more BRAND NEW MUSIC for you all today! This new original instrumental beat composition is inspired by pro wrestling and WWE Legend, “Stone Cold Steve Austin” and his theme, “I Won’t Do What You Tell Me”, originally written, performed, and produced by Jim Johnston!
The beginnings of this latest original piece started like a lot of my other compositions take shape, with me muddling around on, in this case, my midi keyboard to see if I could form something musically and come up with something I liked! What can I say, I DID! It worked, it happened again!
The creative process with this latest piece, entitled, “Out In The Cold”, began with an acoustic guitar patch I found within GarageBand. I then lowered the octave to I think the second lowest key that the program would let me, I thought that the lowest key that GarageBand allows was a bit too low! I then followed that up with playing the same pattern from the acoustic guitar patch on a muted bass patch, also a stock sound in GarageBand. That for the most part, outside of the drums is the only sort of instrumentation employed within the creation of this “Stone Cold Steve Austin” inspired original beat entitled, “Out In The Cold”, and bonus tidbit, I named it “Out In The Cold” because well, it’s inspired by “Stone Cold Steve Austin”. What I think really makes this composition what it is, and as special as I think it is, are the drums and all the elements from the different kits that I used to construct the drums for this new original instrumental beat composition.
The creation of the drum patterns within this beat started with a “Modern 909” kick drum where it was pretty straight forward a beat with the kick drum on every beat of the bar, until the fourth bar, where I tripled it! I then went on to add a shuffle pattern with a symbol crash, also from the “Modern 909” drum kit within GarageBand. From there, I added a clap from the Hacienda drum kit, which had a pattern of a beat on every part of the bar, until the last beat of the second and was doubled on the third and fourth beats of the 4th bar. The last element I employed in the drums of this composition was a shaker from the “Infinity” drum kit, with the only really straight ahead pattern, where it’s on every beat of every bar, just to add a little extra oomph to the beat, which I liked. It was just a little something extra, and I think it rounded out the composition pretty well.
Another bonus tidbit about this instrumental and about me and what I like. Another reason this instrumental beat composition is inspired by “Stone Cold Steve Austin” and his theme, “I Won’t Do What You Tell Me” is because the way I wrote and composed the acoustic guitar and bass parts reminded me of the theme and how it sounds, it was reminiscent for me, as I have been a professional wrestling fan for most of my life! A fan of the WWF/WWE, WCW, ECW, I love pro wrestling, and the fact that this new composition is reminiscent for me of “Stone Cold Steve Austin” and his theme, “I Won’t Do What You Tell Me” is purely coincidental, but it gives me an excuse to combine my love for music, music production, entertainment, and media, with my love of professional wrestling. It’s also an excuse for me to tell what you all a little more about me.
Thanks everybody! I hope you all enjoy this new instrumental beat composition inspired by “Stone Cold Steve Austin” and his theme, “I Won’t Do What You Tell Me”.
