I used to do that before I played guitar. Unfortunately, it's much more difficult to write music to that. I have some old lyrics I've written, and I may try to adapt them to this new music, but I really am tired of writing without music. I want to write to the music now. It's something new for me.

Those two posts to Rob were very necessary. They'll fly right over his head.

I've purposely done both, just to see which I prefer and, while I prefer getting the lyrics out of the way early, songwriting just doesn't really work that way for most people, myself included.

Yeah, all of my lyrics from before these projects came from me humming melodies out ... which is nice, but doesn't help when it comes time to write the music.

I'm making headway on two songs today: one acoustic and one electric.

Sometimes I find myself just going down the alphabet, trying to find chord progressions that work. Then I add the riffs later.

I use websites that list chord progressions when I'm feeling overly repetitive or stalling on where to go next with something.

I get like this every June/July

Baseball season is sooo olong. After a while it feels pointless...

But perhaps I'm saying this since we lost yesterday, and we're losing today

I don't follow baseball, nor have a favorite team.

The state teams are the Orioles and the Nationals, but I already cheer for one shit team every year, thank you.

I'm pretty much finished the music formation for my first acoustic track. About time to work on the lyrics.
