MonthOfMusic Day 22

Today was rough. I have had this guitar riff running through my head for a week, and I finally sat down to record it. I did it in the key of G, and I’m just awful at that scale. It was an excuse to make me practice, and man, was it rough. I did about 30 takes of this one. This is the one song this month that took the longest for me to record, and it’s a few minutes to midnight so I’m shipping what I have.

It’s not perfect, but it’s out!

MonthOfMusic Day 21

Here’s song 21, and it might be a little all over the place, but I really liked the melody. I’ll probably rework this in the future, but for this challenge, it’s good enough for me. One of the biggest problems I’ve had before doing this is a lack of confidence in releasing things, and by releasing things that aren’t as perfect as I’d like, I’m working to get over that.

Here’s song 20, done in just a few minutes. It was an extremely long day today, but I still managed to fit this in and I’m happy with the results. Enjoy!

Here’s today’s song. Another electronic one, based on a melody I did during the RPM challenge this year.

MonthOfMusic Day 18

Day 18’s tune is actually the song I wrote and recorded on day 16, but it got bumped two days because I had other ideas I wanted to do. It’s electro-pop, almost in the style of Pet Shop Boys or Erasure. I can’t sing like Neil Tennant though so there’s no vocals. (Ok, there were but I chickened out and cut them out before uploading.)

Anyway, here ya go!
