Oh I did... Appreciate the kind words as always!

That particular entry was an idea from last year that I just couldn't seem to take to the next level. I left it for a while and it just kept sneaking back into my mind now and again. So in Aug i started to jam on it again (i usually work on like 3-5 tunes at the same time until one of them get's finished).

  • And then, I really focused in on that particular one for a few days trying to break through and it really came through for the verses (i think) where I decided to sing with a lot of force instead of airy and low reg.

  • The pre-chorus i never really touched all that much, A couple of melody slurs and a quick rhythmic change for one line.

  • The chorus I actually cut out some of the words and opted to change the melody in each line. It used to be just me blasting at maximum capacity the same melody for all four lines which took everything i had to maintain and didn't really hold my attention.

  • I also re-wrote the bridge, however when I was making the open mic recording, I did a few versions with the "fluff bridge" and honestly it had better context than the re-write.

Save it for the recording. And yes, the plan is still to make the album and release as an exclusively steemit artist. I have very little interest in the rest of the internet platforms for releasing music right now lol.

Dude! writing this note to you gave me an idea. What if I started writing some kind of composition blog... Might be an interesting idea. Write a tune: analyses the composition process and the musical devices I used etc... Maybe it could be interesting.

Yeah definitely bro, that sounds like an interesting idea for a composition blog, you should definitely try it out for a week or two and see how it brings in feedback for your creation process :)
