My son likes to pick out tunes on the piano, like you do, and I help him find the notes if he gets stuck. He’s nailed the Axel F theme and asked to learn another one, which he sang to me, and opened up on YouTube. The riff he was singing sounded familiar. It was; I wrote it.
Skrillex – love him or hate him. His name makes Dubstep afficianados involuntarily vomit apparently. The tune Ruffneck has plays in the millions on Youtube. Not sure if it’s getting loads of radio play or selling much.
There’s some debate on music forums about where the string samples are from, with suggestions that they’re off an 80s pop or tv track.
Nope, they are all from Disco Strings, by realstrings.com, 20 quid from Loopmasters.
Here they are at their original tempo of 114 bpm. Loops 18A, 18B and 66B.
It’s probably about the only time my lad has had any interest in Dad’s work!
