Do you have a couple of minutes to spare to make some music? Chrome Music Lab is offering a new music creation tool called Song Maker for free. This browser-based sequencer won’t win you any Grammys but it will give you a basic overview of how electronic music is put together.

Song Maker is dead easy to use, basically allowing you to chart certain notes for the melody and dropping some beats at the bottom. You can choose from a number of instruments, including a piano, marimba, some strings or synths, and to keep the beat you can select a conga, a kit drum, blocks or electronic beats.

One done “drawing” your patterns of music (you can also sing into the microphone to see if you can hit the right notes), press play and adjust the tempo if need be. Your songs can be saved and passed on to others for a wicked co-lab session.

With our brief efforts it’s clear we’re certainly not the next Dr. Dre. To try it out for yourself, head here.
