I made this track with an electric piano melody then started adding the 808's to it. At first, finishing this song seemed like a challenge but I ended up making it in one day. Once you add the hi-hats and claps, it's not hard to continue making a beat from that point. All you have to do is come up with interesting patterns but still be familiar enough so that people like your shit.
Hell, making instrumentals is kind of like writing a book; You get the ideas that eventually turn into chapters, those chapters were formed by paragraphs which ended up becoming pages. Just when you thought you were finished you have to top it all off with mixing and mastering.
