Today was the first time that I’ve had a true collaboration while writing my songs for 2010. My talented musician friend from Asheville, Chris Campbell came over and we pretty much wrote this song in a few minutes. I was jamming on my mini keyboard and he was playing guitar. I had written the words before he got here but modified them as we went along.
We started with the guitar and mini keys playing with a click track, then I did the drums and he played the bass part. I then did my vocal with him doing the backing and we finished up with Chris playing the lead guitar.
I hope to do more songs like this. I have a tendency to work by myself and be a recluse, so collaborating is a welcome change.
