YouTuber Casual Chris Music needs to relax. He's up at 3 AM in Maui, because he's freaking out about waves. He spent that time making some amazing sounding House in BeatMaker 3!
Relax, It's Legal, made with Beatmaker 3 in Maui
From the Big Dreams, Bigger Kahuna album. This song was made at 3 AM in Maui. I was the only one awake while I was in Hawaii with a bunch of people who went to sleep early each night. It was a crazy night, the waves were crashing against the beach pretty hard. I couldn't sleep because I felt like the big wave was coming. I gained a new found respect for the ocean after this night. We could all get wiped away by this big body of water... but relax.. its legal! The melody was created on my way to get some burritos. I found something catchy and recorded it. Turned out to be my favorite part of the song.
I am a dedicated "on the go" iPad music producer. I share my workflow, tips on how I stay creative, tutorials on plugins I use, and my music. If you like what I do and represent please subscribe to my channel it helps in a major way. We found each other at the right time! Feel free to drop a comment and I'll get back to you ASAP. Thank you - Casual Chris

Written by the lead singer and rhythm guitarist James Hetfield, the song has been covered many times including by Shakira. This IndianRaga version has a strong Indian classical rock touch to it that blends Carnatic, Hindustani and Western classical notes. Bringing together a complex mix of instruments and arrangement are Kavitha Jayaraman (Veena, Carnatic), Makheer Singh (Taus, Hindustani), Bharath Namboothiry (Ghatam, Carnatic), Mayukha Kashyap (Violin, Western Classical), Mahesh Raghvan (iPad & Music Production), Nagaari (Guitar & Music Production).
