To all the moaners... if you put the same energy into making music as you do complaining it might help you more.
Don't you get it? The fact Tim can't remember where he found the preset IS the lesson.
There is no exact formula for making great art. The creative process involves experimentation, luck, and the stars aligning at just the right moment. A pinch of this, a dash of that... until it starts to sound awesome... Tim can't teach you that magic because he doesn't even know where it came from him himself.
He played those notes because of a lifetime's experience if listening to and absorbing music. And then letting it flow back out through him. The melodies arise from the sub conscious. And if it's not in your subconscious then you're not going to get it from a tutorial. You get it from hours and hours of listening to music and from hours and hours trying to create music.
It may not the the greatest audio engineering course but as a look behind the scenes at how The Comeback Kid was created it's awesome. Thanks Tim and Sonic Academy
