Well, THAT was a lot of work!
Yup — I’m done. I have finished 10 original songs for an album for February (14, if you count the re-recordings I did of songs I wrote before this month). Bit of a squeaker, really — only a few days left! I’m not going to write any more, though. If this last song has taught me anything, it’s that I have a finite amount of inspiration available to me. I’m really starting to repeat myself, and that’s a sure sign it’s time to stop.
So, here you go: Nothing fancy, just guitar and vocal (because I simply haven’t got any energy left to devote to adding all of the other stuff I think it needs right now).
Since I have a few days left, I may go back and remix some of the earlier songs, making use of what I’ve learned from the recent ones. I’m not re-recording anything, though. Done is done. Maybe if I ever decide to use any of them for an actual album, I’ll redo them (or enlist someone more competent to help me do so). I’m just happy I was able to get 10 songs together. Accomplishment! Whoohoo!
Here’s the whole project, reassembled a bit; I’ve rearranged the list and deleted a couple of the older songs, so I can pretend it’s actually an album and not just a mess I made. :)
Ultimately, I think there are only one or two real keepers in there, but the whole project was worth doing. Someday I’ll write something good! Hell, I may even know how to mix a darn song by then. For now, it’s back to busy life doing other things. I have covers to get back to, after all — one challenge down, one LOOOOOONG ongoing challenge still to go!
