If you don't already subscribe to this channel, you should. He shows you a lot of very good techniques, from beginner to pro level stuff.

He just now started a new 6 part series on creating a song from scratch using inexpensive home studio gear and a free version of Pro Tools. But it applies to any DAW you choose.

If you're new to recording or just have trouble getting started you can benefit from this series.

Here's part one. The next part will come next week I think.
