“that i avoid even casual conversation;
that i avoid you is a valid observation.”
those are 2 lines from a song that i started writing 8 years ago. the lyrics were done in a few days, but i never found the right chords for the melody that kept on repeating in my head. for that matter, i didn’t even have a complete melody down pat. there was just enough for half a chorus.
the other day it suddenly just clicked. i was messing around with the guitar and it happened. “cold shoulder” (working title) is officially the first song i’ve written with prudence. 3 cheers! and another 4 more cheers to the musicianfags i bugged about my progression transition problem. thanks; C, S, M and L.
in the end it was my main piano man (talented like whoa — listen to him here) who followed through with a 6 chord transition, and a slight adjustment to a pre-existing progression. he even recorded a sound clip for me (hence, this post). extra points awarded for him running on close to empty during all that time. he hadn’t slept. nevertheless, it turned out fantastic and the song wouldn’t be what it is without him.
can’t wait to record it!
