I’m stripping down… one of my songs. Right down to its birthday suit for your peeping eyes only.
November is my birthday month, and I felt like including a bonus for Tune Booster subscribers.
What better way to celebrate a birthday than undress a song down to its birthday suit, just for you?
I’m blowing the top off my box of pride, giving you a rare peak-a-boo at some rather embarrassing audio recordings and lyrics of a song I started writing.
There I am sitting in my little studio with the digital recorder running.
Strummin’ my guitar, mumbling half lyrics and half nonsense words, sometimes not even on key…
Scraping the walls of my mind looking for melody, lyrics, and music for a tune I didn’t know would take its first breath or not.
All for your personal enjoyment, and my 50 shades of red.
Hopefully, as we look at this tune together, we can see what the intent was. Some of the background… why I wanted to write it in the first place…
What worked, what changed, and why.
I’ll even include what a hit songwriter said about it when he tore into it.
Am I sure I want to go through with this?
Yeah. I’m doing it.
And hopefully there’s some value you can apply to your own writing.
It’s not up there yet. Soon though.
And whatever you do?
If you’re not a Tune Booster subscriber yet?
Don’t sign up now, because you’ll prob’ly sneak under the publish deadline and pick up October’s issue as a bonus before November’s gets published.
That just wouldn’t do, would it? https://www.tunesmithtips.com/newsletter/
