It’s that time of year (most years, anyway) where I decide to try to write and record a song in a day, every day for a week. Sometimes I’ll keep going for the next week to. I usually take the weekends off (but not this time). The quality is variable, to say the least, but there are normally a couple of songs that come out ok.
I didn’t do this at all last year, I had writer’s block for 14 months, and it wasn’t fun. Good job I don’t do this for a living.
It’s an unusual feeling, when after a musical drought, you have the feeling, you know that all you have to do is pick up your guitar and open your notebook and songs will appear. It seems to work, though.
Here are songs #1 and #2 from this week: (I started on Saturday this time, just because).
‘Unbroken’ is uncharacteristically upbeat and positive for me, I thought I’d try for ‘not miserable’ and surprisingly, it worked!
You can tell I’ve got a cold, can’t you?
