Songskirmish to write a song in an hour. I started and finished a half-hour late. Selected a random from a number sequence and the prompt. Recorded arpeggio guitar and chord plucks, and shakers to a metronome. Then I remembered tales of how the people who consistently made money during the gold rush were people who sold shovels and maps, and my grandpa, so that became some hasty verses.
5/4 time Short cut capo fret IV strings 234
Repeat arpeggio progression Guitar chord shapes relative to capo Dmaj7 Em Dmaj7 A5
Legends and lore
X marks the spot
Shovels and maps sold here
You can strike it rich
With hidden treasure
Cold as hell down there frozen boiling
Got to be better than it is here
Grandpa chased that dream
Till the day he died
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
