We’re adding an extra mouth to feed around here.
A mouth with four legs and a furry brown coat.
A Standard Poodle.
Now, before you email me crap about getting a prissy, sissy poodle.
Poodles, whether you realized it or not, are water dogs, hunters. Mean little sons-a-guns who’ll tear you a new one if you even look at it crosswise. Make a Pit Bull look like your grandma on a bad blue-hair day.
Okay. So the last part about them being mean is bullcrap, but they really are hunting dogs. Not to mention second to only the Border collie for smarts among all canines on the planet.
So we know for a while now we’re getting one. We’ve even got a name picked out. Cocoa.
I love nicknaming my pups, so it offers lots of fun nicks.
Now, my wife. She logs in on the puppy cam all the time.
The breeder has a cam on the pups 24/7.
You can watch them getting fed, playing, sleeping, and shooting their little ‘turdpedos’ out their back ends…
Whatever they’re doing, you can watch.
My wife? She’s addicted to that cam. As many times as she’s logged in and seen the pups, she’ll log in again and again.
She just don’t get tired of it.
And you know what? Songwriting is just like that puppy cam.
Or it should be.
We should be writing tunes people want to hear over and over and over.
Never get sick of them.
Fact is, if you gig out, you want creepers dang-near stalking you to play their fav tune.
To do that, your songs have to have a few things going for it.
Great groove and music, and great lyrics.
Maybe you’re better at one of those than another.
Does your tune deserve the best on both?
Maybe you need to get a co-writer in on the deal. Help you with your weaker skill.
And what about co-writing? Where to find co-writers and what to do with them when you do get them… so you don’t blow it.
All that and more in November’s Tune Booster.
