What Arnold Schwarzenegger can teach you about making music
Are you passionate about making music? I mean, really really passionate? Do you feel like you need to do this no matter what? Is your body showing withdrawal signs when you let your music alone for too long?
Than let Arnold Schwarzenegger shift your passionate mind for a sec. Yes, Arnold Schwarzenegger, the man that you probably know from “Get to the choppa!” or “I’ll be back”.
If you check out his story, you will learn that he achieved what others thought to be impossible and not just once but over and over again. He went from his dad being a Nazi and a complete *&^*^ to becoming Mr. Universe (7 times!) and Governor of California.

And if you are able to look at each of those loops and tracks as just one less step to take on your path to awesome tracks that will enlighten the crowds at your dream club, festival or home show…
…you will be smiling all the way through every one of them, just like Arnold!
