Song Progress

Remember that song I was talking about in Tuesday’s post? The one that was hard to find a melody for? Well, last night, I just decided to sit down and hash this thing out. Me vs. lyrics, here we go! Though honestly, if I didn’t already have a general idea for this song I would have left it be like I said I would on Tuesday. But I am half stubborn, half “What else am I going to use this melody for?” with what I’m working on now, and I am fairly happy with my end result.

Will I be when I go to mix it? We’ll see! I wound up only using a fraction of the lyrics I had written and I really liked how it turned out last night pre-mix. That usually doesn’t happen for me: I always think a song is meh until I go to mix it, so fingers crossed that this is a good sign! I…am a little nervous it won’t fit with the other songs on the EP, but as I said we’ll see after the mix. I mean, we are all our worst critics, right? So maybe after I show it to someone else I won’t be so critical of it (that happens a lot XD).

I was excited to just…get something recorded. Even if this doesn’t pan out with these lyrics, I have a backing track I can add to and build on for something else. So all in all, last night was a very productive recording night! Now off to mix!
