What's a style guide?

A style guide is an idea I came up with a few months ago. Basically it's fully researched articles on a specific artists musical style and tools they're using in their productions.

The basic structure of a style guide would be;

- Typical chord progressions
- Song structure
- Basic audible features (style)
- Production techniques
- Information about specific synths and effects they're using (researched through articles, master classes and YouTube videos)
- Lists where you can find resources related to the specific artist (samples, project files, plugins etc.)
- And so on.

I'm still working on content for this tab. The first artist will be... *drumroll*... BROOKS.
