О курсе

In this course you will develop the skill set to freestyle rap in various styles without running out of bars, even if you have never rapped before. This is a bold promise, but like anything else, freestyle rhyming can be broken down into a few simple steps. I will explain the three components to rapping, then we will talk more about freestyle-specific skills. 


1. Rhythm: You will learn to catch any beat by tapping out the quarter notes, then create a simple percussion rhythm which you will then put words to.

2. Lyrics: We will talk about polysyllabic rhyming, associations, building topics to fall back on, and wordage (word choice).

3. Delivery: In this lesson you will play around with your voice to see what it can do, and take a good look at how to hone your flow.

 After we cover the three fundamentals of freestyle rap, I will help you to develop multiple flows and improve your delivery, teach you tricks to come up with rhymes and always have subjects to rhyme about in cyphers.
We will cover: Cypher Etiquette, how to Never Run Out of Bars, Tools to Get Going, Finding Beats, Switching Flows, Entering a Flow State, and more. 

Relax, get into the vibe, and come with me on this journey through the components of freestyle rap. 

Oh, and if you are wondering "Who is this guy and why should he be my rap teacher?" I am the musician that goes by the name Douglas, Sir Douglas Fresh, Ammon, and godsol. You can listen to & download my mixtape at douglas.life/mixtape, and find me on Spotify as Ammon (Check out my song "Ammon - You Are Love")
I also hold periodic freestyle events for local rappers called Solsfest (since 2014). 
Oh yeah, and I built a worldwide music map app that YOU can be a part of! You can find beats there, and even share your music for free. It's called cXc Music, and you can find it at music.cxc.world

Components of Freestyle Rap
Learn about rhythm, lyrics, delivery
Rhythm
Because this is the first lesson in course, and the lesson is about rhythm, this lesson starts out with a brief section on removing limiting beliefs. Limiting beliefs can throw you off your rhythm, and distract you from your lyrics and delivery.Next, we talk about the common patterns in music, and start practicing with one syllable rhymes. We learn to make our own rhythms representing syllables in our raps. We will talk about the shape of words, and why polysyllable rhymes affect our rhythm structure.Finally, we'll put it all together; tap out a beat, which we will put a lyrical rhythm to in percussion, then pre-think the ending word, then add all the words to the rap.
Lyrics Part 1
In this lesson we talk about how to come up with good lyrics. We talk about common structures of music that we will freestyle to, look at polysyllable rhymes, adding spice to our lyrics by mispronouncing, making up words and more. We talk about using sound effects in place of words also. This lesson covers keys to coming up with lyrics on-the-fly, like focusing on last word, and telling a story with your freestyles.We talk about what to do when you can't think of words, as well as entering into a flow state and how stories are good for audiences and artists. We talk about re-entering the flow state when you get off vibe.
Lyrics Part 2
In this lesson, we'll cover topics to freestyle about. We will break down the three levels of topics. We'll cover where to find good themes/topics to rap about that fit with the context. We talk about switching themes, and some theme/topic ideas relative to cyphers. Finally, we discuss about wordplay, and wordage (word choice), and how these separate average rappers from pros.
Delivery
In this lesson we talk about finding your voice and delivering great sounding rap lyrics. We go over key components of vocal delivery to keep in mind, like volume, stamina, pitch, range, and dynamics. We also talk about nonvocal delivery, like posture and gesticulations. We talk about matching your emotional state to the delivery you want. We will learn some chi techniques that may help you to hone and resume a desired emotional state.

Tools to Get Going

Never Run Out of Bars
In this lesson, we talk survival tips if you want to never out of bars. I'm completely confident that using the skills taught in this course, any person who believes in themselves and dedicates the time and energy will be able to rap for an indefinite amount time. To get to this goal, we discuss things like being persistent, switching flows, knowing when to pass the mic, what to have prepared, keeping topics to jump to, breathing, and more. At the end, I will give you my words to the wise that I have learned from personal experience.
Switching Flows

Designer, Artist, Evolving Consciousness

I love to learn and teach. I am a free-spirited creator and artist in many disciplines. My courses focus on selling art online, energy work, and music. I teach what would help a younger me, including the strategies I used to sell over 19,000 copies of my artwork without advertising, energy techniques I have learned to unlock human potential, and tips to help musicians.

My Life

I grew up near Deep Creek Lake, Maryland, and I am currently traveling South America thanks to selling art and teaching online. I plan to keep traveling, creating, and learning from this amazing planet as long as I live!

My purpose on Earth is love. Love is the greatest teacher, healer, and creator. I believe when the individual chooses to love all unconditionally, that feeling lights up the whole world instantly. That is the world I want to live in, so I choose to. I hope to inspire others to find this vibration in their own way.

My Projects

I created Current X Change, a company that makes apps that allow creators to share their creations on a global map for all to see and vote on. You can try out our first web app, cXc Music, at https://music.cxc.world and learn more about our vision at currentxchange[.]com.

I also started Aquarius Academy (http://aquarius.academy). Our mission it is to help evolve planetary consciousness with love. We distill spiritual content to help seekers connect with the right information for their point of their journey.

I run fashion lifestyle brand Live in Love liveinlove[.]life and also sell my art on POD sites like Redbubble & Society6, and stock photography sites like Adobe Stock and Shutterstock.

Infinite love,

- Douglas
