Album Writing Month

February is album writing month, which means I’m going to try to write 14 songs in 28 days; how hard could that be right? The FAWM community seems pretty supportive which makes it even easier.

What you see here is pass number 1; when you are making a song every other day there isn’t a lot of time to make them “shine” My plan is to finish up February, and then come back and fix these songs to make them sound good (add a melody, drums, clean vocals that follow the melody). Hopefully I can use everything I learned from the first go through to help me get through the second run through of all of this. Currently what you are seeing is scratch paper with some thought out ideas; but hey, you got to start somewhere.

Things I learned
– Without a melody it is really hard to sing a song. Just singing to chords doesn’t work out to well
– I need to get better at playing to a metronome or drum beat.
– I need to work on structure: intro, outro, bridges. Some of my songs start and end to abruptly, and the transitions between chorus and verse are also pretty abrupt.
– Picking the right tool for the job. I’m going to look into using guitar pro as I re-do these songs, and do everything in proper musical notation as opposed to using just lyrics with no time and Ableton.
