Was that meant to be promotional or educational?

I guess more on the educational side but making a beat like I start any other beat.

I thought 'beats' contained 'percussion'?

Cool...from an eduactional standpoint, I would like to have seen maybe some screenshots of Live to better see what you were doing, and maybe a rundown of the equipment used, patch creation, how you handle the mixdown, etc.

I checked out some of the other 'making beats' videos....cool, but not very educational. I would like to have seen what Pharrel was doing when he was making the beat, not just a 'hanging out in the studio' video.

All of it was on the fly just tape and I build a beat from scratch. I guess I could make another one this was my first time doing a beat for the camera. The rest of the beat was finished later didn't have enough time for the rest. You know youtube has a 10 min thing going on.

I would say the beat you heard would be the chorus part and the 2nd part which you guys haven't heard would be for the verse part. I might make a song out of it later still thinking I have a million other projects that need to be done. Also you know a beat might not sound amazing but once vocals get into it they can make it or break it.

It's OK. There's a lot of beat making vids on Youtube. I demand the finest in free entertainment. You should edit that down or something.
