No Contest is a Dr Dre Type Beat, with that West Coast Slow Rolling feel to it. This is one of the first beats I made attempting to emulate one of my favorite music producers, Dr. Dre.

No Contest is part of the Final Hour Music Volume 1 collection.

Teach Yourself Piano

i received the following message from one of my followers about learning how to play piano. Check it out. Then, find out why I stress this point: Teach yourself piano!

Message from my follower:

Sup Taurus,

I've tried teaching myself keys a few times...I don't know if it's that I don't have the patience, or maybe i've approached it wrong, or it could be that i wasn't inspired by my old yamaha keyboard with mid size keys, but I never got anywhere with it.

Even though there are many keyboard/piano tutorials on youtube, I think it'd be fresh if you could do a vid talking about the approach you took to teach yourself. Like how did you learn scales? What would your practicing consist of? Did you learn on that 25key jawn!? Anyway, I think cats would appreciate something like this. I know I would.
