Been messing with Ableton for years on and off with no sign of improvement. I'm tired of getting stuck into EDM production for a week, then getting stuck in an 8 bar loop and stopping out of frustration, then coming back months later only to have the cycle repeat itself. I have a low attention span and it's a problem.

So, just like I have people expecting me to show up for work, I want to have someone expecting me to show up for EDM production. AKA a tutor. I think it will help me stick to what I want to do.

Any ideas?

Take a look at some of the Berklee/Coursera online classes. Some of them run continuously, but others start on a defined date and you have one week to finish each assignment and review your peers. They have courses as short as four weeks and as long as twelve weeks. A lot of the shorter ones are free too. I've taken their Music Production, Ableton Live, Musicianship, and Synthesizer classes, and all of them have helped me improve.

The deadmau5 master class was great BUT it's geared more toward the intermediate producer. I would recommend it to anyone, but just know you have to have a general knowledge of Ableton before taking his course.

The way you describe your hassles, I see an exact fit for Mike Monday. Look him up on YouTube; he has plenty of free videos.

Your problems aren't technical or musical, but mental. A course specific to EDM production ("how do I make bassline X") is not what you need, but a toolbox of creative strategies to help you deal with these phases of frustration is.

That's what Mike does. He makes you sit down every single day and write music, no matter how shitty.
That'll teach you how to take some distance from the result and it'll help you accept that you will make a lot of shitty music in your lifetime.
In the meantime, your music writing becomes a habit, you're learning tons of stuff and you're not going to stop for months anymore, which is indeed detrimental to progress.

Chris Vine posted a link, in another thread, to a site with some good tutorials on it. Very handy.

Again, thanks for the link Chris.

Yeah, I've just thought, you probably know how to use Live, but just want a tutor to teach you how to go further.

In that case Tarekith has done a few good articles, Arrangements and Transitions etc. Give him a shout.

Trust me on this one. I was in your shoes a year ago. I found the best possible teacher on the internet who is also the coolest cat you will ever meet. Plus his rates are lower than any teacher. He is Ableton Certfifed, is a gigging Bass player and DJ, knows controllers like the back of his hand, sound design guru, and can help you with anything you can think off. I wanted to quit after a few months because I could not get Ableton or Push. In 2 or 3 weeks, I was using Push exclusively without my mouse.

He is now such a close friend of mine, I am moving from NY to Austin TX to go pro as a musician as my mentor Jimmy Allison lives in Austin. I am going to have him in my apt everyday. But for the first year, we used a video service he has setup, he records the lesson and than sends it to you.

I get nothing out of this except helping you get better on Ableton and help Jimmy make a living as a full time musician.

I will go as far and reimburse you for the lesson if you do not like it. Or better yet, I have a 10 pack paid for and you can use one of my lessons for free. PM me if interested and I will call Jimmy and tell him you are using one of my lessons. Unfortunately I can only do this for the OP.

Anyone having any struggles with any aspect of Ableton, education is a must.

Jimmy is the best.

Best of luck to everyone on their journey
