Making Your Guitar A Sample

guitar riff samples Nov 07, 2019

 

This week we're gonna talk about making your guitar line feel like a sample. I know what you're thinking. . . 

"Mike why do we want our guitar to sound like a sample? Why can't we pull something from Splice, Arcade or Apple loops!?"

You could do that and that's completely fine, if that's what you want to do. For me I want to have a tiny bit of authenticity in the things that I'm creating. I want it to feel simplistic, I want it to feel like it's a sample but when asked I want to be able to say. . .

"That's something I made that's an actual riff"

We're looking for is something that sounds strong to stand on its own. I can stand as an intro, but when the verse comes in and then a vocal melody happen, it doesn't feel distracting and it doesn't feel like it's out of place.
