Brian Goulet – Loop Project Final

Goulet - First Loop Final

When I first started my loop draft, I used a calm piano for the base. I then used it to stack my chorus on top to quickly establish the mood of the song. In doing this, I managed to build a simple, yet clean first draft but was then challenged when it came to finishing my final project. I ended up deciding to switch up the instruments when my verse came in so it was a fun little challenge in adapting the rhythm of my vocals to fit the change. You can’t see it in the screen, but I also added automation – shoutout to the Apple Pro Lessons again because I learned that the “a” key is the shortcut for animation. Beforehand, I was completely lost because I have no experience with Logic, or even music for the matter. The Pro Lessons also taught me how to use the keyboard to create my own instrumental loops (the green tracks). When it came to writing the lyrics for my verse it took just as long as it did to create my loops. I’ve learned that coming up with vocals that match your loops/instruments is not easy (go figure). All in all I survived and in the end, I feel good about this being my first Logic Loop ever.

Lyrics:

Chorus

Why don’t you just be yourself

Yo don’t need to go through Hell

I don’t need nobody else

(Scream) I don’t need nobody else

Verse 1

I don’t need nobody else so don’t you straight up lie to me

I understand your hiding things But that don’t clear your history

So talk to me

About the way we used to be

Before we broke so easily

Before we lived so sinfully

Before we lost our dignity

We used to live for everything

We never lost our sanity

But now you’re lost in vanity

Eating up insanity

Chorus

Why don’t you just be yourself

Yo don’t need to go through Hell

I don’t need nobody else

(Scream) I don’t need nobody else
