Songwriting Diary 3: Waylaid by a cold

A frustrated, I-know-the-laptop-is-reflecting-in-my-glasses-but-who-does-second-take-selfies selfie.

I’ve been stuck at home trying to shake off a cold. This is annoying and a waste of time.

Nevertheless, songwriting idea generation over the weekend was a success. I now have the following:

A rubbish, lazy attempt at something slow and psychedelic.

A manic riff in A minor and C minor that might kind of work.

A 12/8 melody that might make a good chorus.

An odd riff/verse/chorus song that’s somewhere between the middle of my song Three Rows of Teeth and Disco 2000 by Pulp. Sort of. But not.

So that’s not a bad start. Some, all, or none of these ideas may become finished songs at some point. Maybe.
