Here Goes

I've spent a part of today (finally) writing some music for lyrics my sister sent me. I've noticed some interesting things happening. For one, I have pitch, sort of. I'm singing her lyrics along with the chord progression, and hitting some notes and recognizing them. I'm not much of a singer, so it's good that it's not just the rhythm of the lyrics going with the music.

At first, I was really liking what I came up with, but now I'm second guessing the crap out of it. That's really annoying, because it's not done yet. Her structures are a bit odd (she knows that) so it's a little harder coming up with parts. I'm trying to determine what key the bridge is in, and if it's different from the rest of the song, it might need a transition. But if part of me is thinking it's no good at all, another part then says, "why bother if it will change?" Stupid inner voices. I guess I need to spend some time away from it and see how it sounds to me when I'm fresh. Ah, creativity.

I probably will have to touch up her lyrics somewhat, just to get the rhythm to work. But, I have to admit, this is kind of fun. I hope she likes it.
