Welcome To the Blog. Today we're talking about songwriting and composition. I've been capturing ideas for an irish Jig.
banjo jigs and reels with Ol'brother Paul
We started off our run by approaching the plan with a song idea.
Three parts, we'll call them parts A B and C.
The main lick. the kind of lick that was meant for a Tenor banjo. We didn't have much else to go-on Except a sloppy old recording found in the Archives. So knowing only the root of the song was a big-ol' D chord, we set off to lay down some Banjo tracks.
An ascending lick with a change of tone-centre. It took me a minute to figure out what was happening, but if I could add an A-chord over top of this new riff, It could bring a much-needed change of energy to the song. I'll figure out the exact chord-progression during my practice session later. For now, It's a good idea, lets capture it...
This part came later. Paul got back to me with a new idea for an outro for the song. This one feels more like a slow-down after a late night celebration. He wrote the part for the mandolin... Sounds great! lets do it.
Same idea, new theme different instrument, but hear how it sounds on that banjo too. lay these down on separate tracks, to see if we can combine them in cool ways later.
i've been racking my brain how to 'internet' properly
Hey guys, so for what it's worth i've decided to split Gene Media into two 'niches' with the feeling that Songwriting is one category, and Music production fits in another. So what does that mean? better sorting of playlists on youtube, and separate analytics on the backend. Should make it easier to keep track of what's working and what's not. #systemssuccess
Here's a new video
Spending the week tracking a new one. thought i'd share
Hey welcome back! Here's a new one i've been playing with in my spare time. A video Series chronicling the creation of this song. Pretty straightforward right?
