Have you ever seen Van Gough’s catalogue of the paint colours he used? Or The entire set of recording notes Hendrix made for his sessions? I doubt you have because I doubt they exist.
A few months ago I talked about taking time to organise your studio; I did it and I’m glad I did.
The truth is, some of us are wired that way, I know one top producer who is meticulous in his work and another one who would be hard pushed to remember the file name for his last session.
Some people thrive in order and some in chaos, I think I’m somewhere in then middle. Any todo list I make gets forgotten or lost, but at the same time I can’t stand mess when I’m in the studio, it unsettles me and stops me being creative - that may sound really anal, it’s not because I love going with the flow.
So you might just be one of those people who will never be organised, if that’s you then you might well be the genius who writes the next hit of the decade, even if you can’t find where you last left it.
