I’ve caught the songwriting bug lately, and this time there’s words involved. at last report I was doing mostly instrumentals, but now I’m doing lots with lyrics. I’m having a very good time with it, as I usually take time during lunch to work with an idea and have it close by during the day in case something pops into my head. I’ve actually been using Google Notebook a lot, which makes it easy to keep track of lots of different ideas at once. when I get home I try to take time to work out a tune and do a quick and dirty recording so I can keep track of it.
you can check out my music blog if you want to see everything, but here’s some highlights:
Red Dress — a love song of sorts. details and words here. (no mp3. well actually there is one out there but it’s the wrong version so I’ll need to redo it.)
other ideas in the hopper are a song for Alice, a song for someone else that I’ll get to naming later, and (for something different) a song about the downfall of the governer of NY.
I’d love some feedback if anyone is so inclined. I’ve got 9 or so songs that I’m pretty happy with that I may try to make better recordings of and perhaps put together a homemade CD, and I’m kicking around the idea of a house concert or something. not sure where all this will lead but I’m having a great time with it.
