Well, I haven't given up on my new song yet! Still working on "The Road To Ruin". I came up with some chords, but I haven't actually recorded the song on my wonderful free recording software yet, so I don't know how it will sound. That is always the test. If it sounds boring, then it gets filed away, never to be heard from again.
I'm also not sure that the song is finished. It seems like it's missing something, so another weekend gone by, more progress made, but still more work to do, obviously.
My husband relayed a comment that was made about me by one of his musician friends. It went something like, "It's surprising that she can come up with so many different melodies.....considering that she is so limited in the number of chords she can play."
Ha! So true! So, I guess that's sort of a compliment. ""Well, she's not too bright, so it's a wonder she accomplishes anything at all."
All I can say is, out of adversity comes "something". It might not be something good, but kudos for the effort. (ha ha)
You gotta keep trying. If it was easy, everyone would do it. Or some sort of cliche like that.
