1. Customize the beats so they fit your signature sound.

Whether your signature sound has a funk, rock, or country feel etc. you want people to know they are hearing your unique beats when they are listening to your music. Your beats should really set you apart from others, and grab your audiences attention.

2. Utilize music beat resources that are available to you.

There are great resources available to help you make your own beats from the comfort of your home e.g. music beat creation software, beat making equipment, music forums etc…use them!

These are great tools for sampling beats, building upon your foundation and creating hot new beats. Listen to cool rhythms you like on CDs, MP3s, music videos, radio, at gigs etc. as this is great inspiration and really can help you feel the grooves. Keep them fresh in your mind, and get a raw sampled recording of some of the beats (e.g. using a handheld recording device) so you can remember them later. Then edit the beats to make them your own.

3. Search for music forums online to find a community of beat makers you can trade ideas with.

Visiting forums is a great way of learning what others are doing to find and create great beats. You can go online and use a search engine to search for forums focused on creating music beats.
