Song Musings

Earlier in the week, I realised what a good idea it is to write a song every week for Song Circle. It means that you can write a bad song, and it doesn't matter so much as when you only write a song every month. Strangely, one of my bad songs from a couple of months ago turned into someone else's good song at another time.
There is something very revealing about playing a song to the group, and realising halfway through that it's not working. Sometimes it's a matter of simply being too complicated, and sometimes it's a matter of being too simple. I really appreciate the time we spend doing this and what I'm learning from it. Not only that, the privilege of listening to other musicians working on crafting their songs is an amazing experience.
