Working Up A Song

I so enjoy building songs. Germ of an idea, a couple chords, see where it goes. Even if, say, all you got’s a half a verse and a chorus line, it’s a fine thing to sit in a circle with friends and run it ’round and ’round, feel it find its shape. Hear the harmonies emerge. Record it on your phone, bring it home. Let it set. Work it some. Play it out. This one’s nowhere near, but I feel like it’s about to grab another gear.

Thank you to the Long Beds. My workmates, my friends.
