Mark,

Really cool of you to share your journey! You capture some very cool vibes/moods/atmosphere in your music I might add.

I think I read in this thread that you took time off to polish your production skills, do you have any specific recommendations regarding that?

Dave
Hey thanks, Dave! Really appreciate you taking the time to listen and for the kind words.

That is correct; it was one of the best decisions I've made and a huge turning point for my music. I bought a few books that were helpful, but honestly the vast majority was through videos/tutorials on youtube. I spent SO much time on youtube soaking in as much info as I could.

Here are a few of the channels (in no particular order) that I found to be the most useful, this is by no mean a definitive list and I'm not saying these are the *best*, but they were hugely impactful for me. There are other channels that I watched to learn more of the business side of things and licensing in general, but these are the ones related to producing.

Hope that helps!!
