Pensive Beginnings

Week 53? What happened to Week 52?

Pensive Beginnings
We prepare to deploy. Stay focused.


Last song of the year. Well, technically the first, but it’s week 52.

I think what I’d like to do is to focus on weekly “exercises” for the coming year rather than necessarily making complete songs. I’d like to work on some exercises (especially focused on composition and songwriting) and then use those in a short song that I’ll upload weekly. More importantly I’d like to try to make these new composition tools a habit.

Sun, Jan 1, 11:50 - 12:10. Time to revisit suspended chord harmony. I used them in a prior song a while ago . Most of this time was spent reviewing what they are and how they’re effectively used.

14:15 - 16:45.

Total time: 2h 50m

great stuff!  i agree, i want to do more exercises.  i am trying to learn music theory and want to do writing exercises. 

I started off 2016 with compositional notes, but LOL life happened and I dropped off that pretty quickly smile
