Today I hid myself away in the nightmare shed with a guitar and microphone and a notebook.
I set myself the task of coming up with some brand new song ideas from scratch. I wrote down a list of possible song ideas – a manic riff in Aminor and Cminor, a psychedelic soundscape etc – and just started playing.
I think it was a fruitful few hours. I’ve got some musical raw material that might make it all the way into a finished song.
Inspiration? There’s no such thing, there’s just hard work.
(Well, not that hard. But work. Well not work. Activity. Doing stuff. I did stuff.)
