56. Read Music Production Manual

57. Producing music doesn’t get you girls, it just makes you more of a geek at the end of the day

61. Review what you’ve learned each week

62. MIDI keyboards are helpful, but not essential (know how to use them well)

63. Develop good habits overall in the beginning. It’s harder to fix bad habits than to form good ones

64. Don’t worry about using a template. Find your style first

65. Constructive negative feedback is far better than a “nice track bro.” It hurts, but it’s worth it

66. There are people out there who physically can’t make music. Consider yourself privileged and you’ll find a lot more joy in it

83. Take some time off if you’re not feeling it, but no longer than necessary

84. Putting a reverse clap every 4 bars does not make you a creative genius
