This is my first 50/90 and I'm already planning to cheat! I have written several songs in the past, but most of them currently consist only of lyrics and a vocal melody. My goal for this 50/90 is to get as many songs to a performance level as possible. This doesn't mean I won't be writing any new songs! Just probably not 50 of them.
Part of what I'm trying to do is create a consistent sound (and image) for a "nerd folk punk" band. Not that I have a band.
. . . Or maybe, since the ten days right before July 4 were my most prolific EVER for song ideas and I now have about 45 half-finished songs in my notes on my new tablet alone, I should actually finish them up and post whatever kind of demos I can.
. . . Or maybe, since life intervened to the point where as of September 1 I've posted three songs, I'll just participate in lots of skirmishes.
I usually don't like to post lyrics without st least a melody, but with so little time to catch up I'm not worrying about it. Plus, I have learned that the songwriting method I use for skirmishes is completely different from the Way I write when I have more time, and tends to result in great lyrics but is less likely to simultaneously create any music for them.
