Song 1 - Day 16: Scratch that.

So my last post was bullocks.  Yeah, I came up with a cool idea the old-fashioned way... but thanks to my wife's helpful feedback I realized it sounded like a bunch of other songs I'd already written.  So, back to the drawing board... and back to the computer.  This time I started the writing process in reverse:  a drum pattern first, a little piano riff, a bass line and finally a simple guitar chord progression.  I'm pleased to say it's coming along quite well.  Still a bit daunted by the lyric / singing part - it's been awhile.  Given that I'm basically producing the full sound as I go - any samples would give away too much (spoiler alert!).  Stay tuned... only 14 days to go.
