next week I’ll be in training for work, far from home. I’m honestly not looking forward to it, but I figure that the evenings will be a good time to work on music stuff. so I’m bringing my octave and I’m hoping to record my next “Simple Song” (I’ve got it mostly figured out, just need to get it down) and work on and record the next one too. actually it’d be great to crank out a whole bunch of them, but you never know how things go. I’m also bringing my mandolin method books to learn to read music, and I want to work on some new songs-with-words too.
I’ll probably work on some lyrics during the day as I’m anticipating that the training wont be too rigorous, but we’ll see. I really like the vibe of the songs from the movie Once, so I’ve been wanting to take a shot at something like that. watching U2 3D last night made me realize there’s a lot of power in a song. that and the Edge has a ton of guitars, but that’s another matter.
so we’ll see how it goes. hopefully I’ll make good progress and post stuff here to share.
