So today, as usual, I went into the studio this morning and it felt great to be back and doing music studio stuff after the holidays and stuff. As I was saying, I learned something new today because the student before me was finishing up and he was doing a song and at the end of his song, he decided to do what is a common thing within some songs, he decided to do what is called a "fade!" Now when that student left and it was my class time, I asked my mentor what a fade was and he described to me that its a thing that you use if you absolutely cannot create an ending to your song, making the song go on and on and on until you find a good spot to put the fade making it end your song. He also described to me that you need to try not to use a fade unless you have to, plan your song to have an attention getter and a beginning, middle, and end! So, the way he was describing it to me, I felt like it was an insteresting thing to ask about and an interesting topic to think about!
