Writing -Gigging- Singing

Gently does it.

I want to keep encouraging myself to keep on keeping on and gently making progress. Do what Julia Cameron in the book 'The Artists Way' calls 'filling the form'

This past month I wrote or co-wrote the following songs (and some other note book scratchings)


  • Don't want to mess up
  • I am the verses ( Open Tuning)
  • Never miss your water
  • Waiting for the shoe to drop
  • Same old story
Same Old Story - Rewrite is better and is more meaningful lyrically so I am happy about that as it's actually a good number if I can make it as great lyrically as it is melodically and structurally imo.

I will be recording a new demo next week - 'Things Change" and co-writer and I have continued to re-write this.

Next week I am off to song training in Vancouver REO Song writing Week workshop so I'll be sleeping in tents and so on but should be good and educational - Jai Josephs from Song U and Pat Pattision are two of the tutors I am looking forward to meeting and learning from.

I also sang 13 songs at a benefit gig last Sunday - need to still work on my voice and speech singing.

Happy 4th of July to everyone and take it easy - and if you can't take it easy - well just take it!
