As I may have mentioned, I’ve just begun writing (again if you count just a few very early attempts) in the past few months.  It’s awesome!  I love it!  I want to do more of it!   And now I’ve just REWRITTEN my first song.  I don’t mean my “first” song, I mean it’s my first  rewrite of a song.  Not my first edit – my first music rewrite.

In this particular case I had written some pretty darned good lyrics (in my opinion), and set them to the only tune I had in my head for that lyric poem at the time.  I set it aside, then, and went on to look at other songs – other lyrics, other subject matter, if you will. 

The other day I was looking at it again.  I knew I was just a bit dissatisfied with the music to the song, so I up and decided to play around with it.  I grabbed my guitar and started playing a different chord progression when suddenly – – – something clicked.  And now, I just couldn’t be happier with the end result.

So, I guess I’m done with it now.  I’m even excited to give it a public outing somewhere to see if others agree with my own personal assessment of the song.  I hope folks like it.
