Finally a Sunday without snow and extreme cold. Mozart, our dog may actually get a few full fledged walks in today. Today’s song is a jazzy song not unlike a song I did back in January (one of my favorites) “The Sweetest Thing is Everything”. What can I say, I love major seventh chords. Thanks for listening!
I haven’t rocked it out heavy metal style in a while. Playing drums on this one reminded me of the days when I played drums in our 9th grade band, Armageddon. I was really into Nicko McBrain and Lars Ulrich at the time and I mostly just played fills instead of a constant beat. The opposite of now, since I mostly play constant beats and not many fills. Ah, how we become more refined with age.
I don’t know about you but I am thoroughly enjoying this once thought impossible task of writing, recording and blogging about a song a day. Some days it’s sucks, I won’t lie. Today was not the ideal time for me to have to write and record a song after basically working or gigging 18 hours a day the last few days, but I still managed to enjoy myself making it happen.
The second this becomes a burden is when things go downhill. Luckily, I can’t wait to hear what I write next. That’s what usually keeps me going.
Today’s song “For No Good Reason” reflects on how some people sabotage themselves and never get what they want. I’ll admit I was a member of this category for a long time. It’s very important to be clear about what you want.
