    wrote my first tune 7 years ago, but i dont think this is an accurate test cos it depends more on how many hours you put in rather then how long ago you started..

    It's a general fact - to become a top amateur in any field requires the dedication of 3000 hours to it's practice - that's 1 hour a day, 6 days a week, for 10 years....

    All wannabe producers would do well to remember that little fact :)

    Loads when I was a student, up to 3 hours a day, but I don't have that much time on my hands these days

    You got to graft big time though!
