I’m still plodding along trying to write a song per week. I think I’m starting to get a better grip of Logic Pro, but it’s pretty extensive software and I doubt I’ll ever fully understand it’s capabilities unless I spent the time properly studying it. Basically I’ve decided that sound engineers are amazing amazing people and deserve all my admiration and respect because I’ve tried (and failed miserably) to do their job!
That being said, it’s nice to be able to get my musical ideas out and do a little bit of editing!
My tune from last week ’14’-
I think is the most simple and poignant song I’ve written since this time last year when I wrote my EP. I’m glad to be going back to my roots and simplifying everything. This song just ran out me, I think in the end I actually wrote the whole thing in a day and then recorded it the following morning. I’m pretty chuffed with it if I’m honest!
This weeks tune, ‘The Tin Man’-
This bad boy was a completely different kettle of fish. I can’t say it’s particularly similar to anything else I’ve ever written… Even the lyrics aren’t very ‘me’… But I did write it, and I like it enough. I think I bear a grudge because I found it a really difficult song to write. I didn’t feel like I could find any of myself in it, so I don’t know that I really managed to do it the justice it deserved… You can listen and decide for yourself if you like it. Kayla loves it, and she seems to be my muse so that must count for something! ;)
