The RPM challenge (record Production Month) is here again.
I haven’t always finished but except for last year, I’ve always tried.
I’ve basically got 4 weekends to do finish 10 songs or 35 minutes of music, record, mix, create a physical copy and mail in. I haven’t written anything new in the last 8 months and way things are going, its going to be a while before I can sit down and write a song for fun.
Soundtrack for this post:
It’s 10:00 AM, I’ve got until about 4:00 PM to write the first batch of songs, I should have at least 8 songs written with some basic tracks laid down.
How will I manage to write 8 songs in 6 hours? Simple, by writing the drum parts first, then laying down some sort of chord progression over them, figuring out a melody and then writing some words (It’s the hardest part for me so I left it for last), that should limit me enough that I shouldn’t have much trouble over thinking things.
I’ve already posted here so I’d better have something to show for it later this afternoon.
Just one last cup of tea while I set up. Wish me luck.
