I’ve been taking an online songwriting class the past few weeks, which has been pretty cool. It’s has been a chance to learn some vocabulary for talking about the mechanics of songwriting and thinking about how to make all the pieces of a song work together. No radical breakthroughs, nor did I have any lighting strikes of inspiration likely to produce fame and fortune.
But, I was sitting in a local coffee emporium the other day while it was being unusually nasty outside (suckiest April on record), and I was thinking ‘gee, I have an assignment due for this class that I need to get done,’ and between the weather, the double shot coffee drink, and the deadline, this is what came out. It’s been through several iterations as I try to work in some of the ideas that we were exposed to in the class. In this version it’s starting to feel pretty finished.
Let me know what you think!
