Here’s the latest news on my songwriting: I’ve been taking guitar lessons, just started two weeks ago and I feel like I’m making good progress; the teacher says so too. I’m learning chords and notes and even some finger picking already. I still have to look to make sure my fingers are in the right place – that will probably go on for quite a while.
As for actual songwriting, I’ve sent the final lyrics & melody for “Don’t Ask Me Why” off to a friend who has graciously volunteered to put piano accompaniment to it. As soon as I get that back I’ll put some vocals to it and post it here for all to hear. I’ve just started working on another song – working title “This Ain’t Living”. I only have a chorus so I’ve got a ways to go to complete it. I attended the local NSAI meeting last week and learned a lot about online tools to help with songwriting and promoting my music – hence this new page. There were also a number of songwriters who presented their songs. It’s so cool to hear work in progress from other writers – I really have to take the leap and perform one of my songs one day for the group.
That’s it for now…stay tuned for more info soon.
