It’s Friday and I have to admit, it’s time to move forward pop over to these guys. I have started composing again and it came at the most unusual time.
Jamming with the Writer
The first piece came to me while reading an acoustic guitar magazine. I was just noodling a bit with 2 of the chords in the exercise given by the writer.
It’s like jamming with the writer and you come up with a different riff. Then you develop it over a few days. Not intentionally, but sort of like living and breathing the piece. Adding and subtracting from it each time you pick up your instrument.
I have since added a chorus and have started developing a 3rd bridge type part.
Hopefully soon I will put up the first demo.
What accidental or “on purpose” composing experience have you had lately?
Leave a comment…
Well, I ordered a 10 string Chapman stick and it will take about 3 to 4 months for the company to produce it and ship.
So what is a chapman stick?
Well take the idea of a piano and apply it to a guitar and bass. And instead of plucking the strings you just tap the note at the appropriate fret buy tamiflu.
Now imagine that you are playing the bass part with your left hand and the melody/chords with the right.
What does it sound like?
Here’s Kevin Keith on the stick just to give you an idea.
