High I am a hobbyist and enthusiast trying to look at spending more time with my editing to take my video quality up a notch.  


My question is do you typically edit your footage then add the music such as i have been doing or start with your chosen music track and try and edit to your music?  Thanks.  https://www.youtube..../gearbow/videos

- first select the usable clips
- second you choose a music background
- Third you edit your clips trying to assemble a story or just a simple sequence that makes sense.

For a video with just a music background seems obvious to cut on the beat but actually it's not so simple. It depends.
Just have a look on this useful thread:

Really depends. If you have a good piece of music go ahead and lay it down in the track and cut over it. I do both. Sometimes cut the selects together then add music. If there is no voice over or sound ups then it could be faster to just cut with the music track you prefer.
