Song a month update

A while back I told you I was going to try to write/record a song a month for 2008. How am I doing so far? Well, I’m proud to say that I’m on pace to reach 100% if we only plan on having 9 or 10 months this year.

So I missed a month or two during summer, but I remain hopeful that a burst of creativity will help me fill the gaps.. One of the things that’s helping actually, is Stevie Z‘s Song Challenge. He noticed a lot of people in and around podcasting tend to be musicians too (why is that? -there’s a post topic for later), so he challenged us to write a song based on specific criteria..

Three of us answered the August challenge, and I won’t even bring up the fact that the guy who challenged us DIDN’T EVEN GET HIS SONG INTO HIS OWN SHOW.. but I digress 😉

It was a lot of fun to do, and Stevie’s right, after a phone coversation with Mark Blevis, I realized that I got so caught up in the style of the song that I forgot the actual topic that was assigned. So I had to add an extra verse at the end of my tune to bring it back on subject, but if you didn’t know you’d never notice … hehe… Anyway -it meant I had a song for August, and could relax stress-free for the 5 remaining days until September.

So congrats to Mark Blevis and John Meadows for each creating awesome tunes with me this rainy August, and I look forward to hearing more tunes from them in the future
