song idea – drambuieApril 19, 2007 at 1:46 am | Posted in aspirations, celticish, instrumentals, octave mando, song ideas | 2 Comments
it’s been a long week and it’s only wednesday. I’m still having ear problems as reported elsewhere which causes a headache after a while. we did music at a special church service on Monday, which went well overall, but I found it nearly impossible to hear myself, so I laid back except for strumming chords.
anyway, I was enjoying a favorite beverage last night and was inspired to play a little and came up with this rough song idea, which I’ve dubbed “Drambuie”. I’m using the new stereo mic for my ipod recorder which sounds pretty good compared to the built-in one. but it still skips. I’ve figured out that it skips at 1:13 no matter what setting I’ve got it on (most likely when it’s writing to the harddrive) so we’ll see if I can get it replaced or what.
in other music stuff, we went to see Nathan Clark George play last week. a good singer-songwriter guy who does songs about life as well as scripture-based stuff. some of it isnt quite my thing but usually it’s good stuff. he takes his whole family on the road in their RV around the country, which I both admire and think is somewhat crazy. so for 2 years in a row now we’ve seen him at a little church down the road, and we buy a couple CDs not only for the music but to support the cause. he does inspire me to want to try to write songs…now just to find the time to sit down and do it!
