Hi all..my apologies that I cannot be with you today..
Following on from our last lessons when we were looking at sequencing techniques for creating drum tracks we are now leaping into pitched parts as well. We are going to build a sequence in Logic of the first 27 bars of Elbow’s “One Day Like This”.
Today’s task is to enter rhythm tracks for the Elbow song One Day Like This.
In todays lesson, please complete the following tasks in number order:
- WORKING INDIVIDUALLY – CREATE A NEW LOGIC PROJECT “ONE DAY LIKE THIS SEQUENCE”. Set the tempo to 78bpm.
- CREATE THE DRUM GROOVE – use copy and paste techniques to create the full 27 bars (as per the score). Once created copy and paste to complete the 27 bars required. YOU MAY ASK THE DRUMMERS IN THE CLASS FOR ANY TIPS and to check your work is accurate! If you find it tricky to enter the semiquaver bits, then using the score editor and/or step input keyboard might help. Remember in drum notation bass drum is on F, snare is on C, hi-hats on top G.
- WORKING IN PAIRS – WATCH THE STEP INPUT KEYBOARD AND SCORE EDITOR TUTORIAL VIDEOS BELOW… Try entering one bar of the bass line, then…
- WORKING INDIVIDUALLY – USE THE STEP INPUT KEYBOARD AND SCORE EDITOR – to enter the bass line.
- If you fly through this, then please go ahead and enter the ELECTRIC GUITAR and/or TAMBOURINE.
You may well want to try the step input techniques discussed during the lesson. Here are two useful videos:
Using The Step Input Keyboard
Using The Score Editor for Note Entry
Your completed Logic project, will be as per the score, i.e. 27 bars long must include:
- the full drum part
- full tambourine part
- full electric guitar part
- full bass line
