Breath For The Winds

Breath For The Winds
=====
Sit back and enjoy the open skies.

I missed last week. I even composed a song but I tried to submit it 30 minutes too late. Here it is if you’re interested:

=====

Sun, Nov 20, 10:30 - 12:15.

Sketching out a structure. I think I’m going to be conservative and try out a live song, but to follow a typical song structure.

14:00 - 16:15. Continue with structure. This is like paint-by-numbers in a way.

Okay, doing this was actually REALLY hard, since I didn’t spend the time to fully automate all of the chord changes or drum part changes, so I had to think about them during the song.

I had to do this like 10 or more times for takes and there are still mistakes. I can see why most people are content to just do 4 chord songs, you don’t have to worry about this stuff in a 4 chord song.

Total time: 4h
============

G major

Overall song notes, because I can’t memorize everything that’s going in my stuff.

Scene 1 (Verse) E G D A (Em)
Scene 2 (Pre-chorus) D C C D
Scene 3 (Chorus) G D E C (G)
Scene 4 (More chorus for soloing)
Scene 5: 1 bar transition, tonic.

Bassline: 1-4: Verse
5-8: Pre-chorus
9-12: Chorus
13: tonic, 1 bar transition

Song mode:

Scene 1 x2 (intro)
Scene 1 x8
Scene 2 x4
Scene 3 x8
Scene 5: x1 bar transition
Scene 4 x8
Scene 3 x8
Scene 1: x2 (outro)

= 161
