I’ve hit the wall working on my 3 songs. But just as I had to be a beginner when I first started writing fiction, so do I have to be a beginner in writing songs. As they say in writing fiction, you have to write a bunch of crap before you can get to the good stuff. In songwriting they call it writing a “sucky” song.
I’m hoping I just haven’t found my genre yet. I love, love, love Mary Gauthier but we have different styles. So then today I heard this song, Somebody Fix Me by Grace Potter and I went nuts. I love crazy-ass songs like this – so bluesy!! Gotta try playing this on the keyboard. I’d bring it down a notch, though, for my voice.
