Hey everybody! Welcome back to another epic edition of Ten Minute Tuesday! It’s your buddy Brad Tennant, the lofi melodic beat maker, and producer dude from Southeast Michigan.

Alright, if you’re new here, Ten Minute Tuesday is where I challenge myself to whip up a killer beat from scratch in just 10 short minutes.

Now, let me be real with ya—I haven’t done a 10 Minute beat in what feels like forever! Three months, man! So, I’m a bit rusty, and I can’t guarantee how this’ll turn out, but who needs words when we’ve got music to do the talking, am I right? So, let’s get right to the beat making!

10 minutes on the clock, and the countdown begins… now!

Drum roll, please! Time to pick the perfect bpm to get those feet tappin’. Oh, someone’s honking outside, but ain’t nothin’ gonna distract us from our mission. Let’s speed it up a notch—fast track it is!

Bass time! Gotta find that low-end groove to lock it all in. Let’s try this bass sound. Not sure where it’ll take us, but hey, let’s roll with it.

Play it one more time, and yeah, that works!

We got five minutes—tick-tock, time’s tickin’ away!

Alright, alright, time to spice things up with a lead! My keyboard’s like a playground for melodies.

Ah, decisions, decisions—oh, I think I’ve got something!

Three and a half minutes, folks!

But hey, we need some extra magic! Percussion’s the secret sauce, and we’ll sprinkle it like confetti.

One minute left, but we’re not sweatin’ it—we’ll randomize and surprise ourselves!

Time’s up! Man, that was intense, but check it out—we got a beat, a legit beat, in just seven minutes! Can you believe it?

I’m jamming to it, and it’s sounding pretty darn cool. Not perfect, but it’s got that charm, ya know?

Alright, my friends, that’s a wrap for this Ten Minute Tuesday. If you dug the vibe, head over to the channel and subscribe!
