Songwriting drought over

I finally broke my songwriting drought with “contradiction blues.” It may not be my best song, but I finally got something on paper.

The approach I used for the lyrics came from the last songwriters group. The idea was to write a song with just good lines, as opposed to telling a story. So that’s what I tried. I kept expecting some great message to emerge, however, it seems to hold together pretty well without that grand message.

While recording this, I found that it sounded really cool with my voice an octave lower (deeper voice). However, I haven’t trained my voice in this range and can’t hit all the notes, yet. My challenge over the next month or so is to be able to sing this in that lower range.
