"Opus" epic Sample Flip Beat - Moody instruMental Music by Taurus M. James

This is one of the sample flip beats in my latest Moody instruMental Music collection "CMA Beats" available for you to download here at TaurusBeats.com.

For this sample flip beat, I'm using Propellerhead Reason 6.5 and the Yamaha DJX MIDI keyboard as a controller to trigger all instrument sounds in Reason. Be sure to check out my Reason Beat Making Video Tutorials, where I show you how to make Moody instruMental Music and sample flip beats.

Even though I'm using Propellerhead Reason to make my Moody instruMental Music creations, you can use my tips and techniques in any DAW to create your own music and make beats.

Follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud etc. and I'll see you there! =)

Thank you for your support.

Grace and Peace!

SAMPLE FACTS

From the 1976 album LEFTOVERTURE.

Actually the full title of this song is "Magnum Opus a.Father Padilla Meets The Perfect Gnat b.Howling At The Moon c.Man Overboard d.Industry On Parade e.Release The Beavers f.Gnat Attack".

It is a collection of leftover bits and pieces from both Walsh and Livgren that were cut and pasted together to make this song. The original title was "Leftoverture", but Dave Hope suggested that would be a better name for the album. When Wally Gold the bands manager, suggested Magnum Opus for the song, the switch was made.

All the members were given writing credits.

Steve Walsh - Lead Vocals, Keyboards, Vibraphone, Percussion
Kerry Livgren - Guitars, Keyboards
Dave Hope - Bass
Phil Ehart - Drums, Tympani
Rich Williams - Guitars
Robby Steinhardt - Violin

Bedlam

- a scene of uproar and confusion.

I don't know why I named this beat Bedlam. I think it was because there was an OU/OSU football game being advertised at the time I was making it.

Anyway, this experimental Hip-Hop beat has a little bit of a feeling of uproar and confusion. The beat drives hard and the instrumentation at the end gives it a good accent.

This version has more of my experimental, improvisational piano playing.

So technically this is Week #2 of WHA/WHP for 2014. I had the great idea of reliving the flawless victory that was Week #2 of 2013, but with another Bob James sample. Problem is, I couldn't settle on one, so this quick became a Bob James dedication show. Every CMA member that submitted, stood up and represented. Enough talking. Press play and enjoy!
