STARTING to feel a bit under pressure to finish of the new songs for consideration for my album project.
There’s two that are 99% ‘there’ but one of the ideas is still going round in circles and needs developed. Fast!
And the three string guitar boogie isn’t much more than a riff and some ‘placeholder’ lyrics. Need to get a move on.
In the studio I manage to focus on one of the songs…then the guy from the solar company arrives to check our our house’s suitability for solar panels and storage. Once he’s done, Margaret heads into town to get some shopping and I start off a run of leather keyfobs to fulfil an order from the West Highland Way Gifts’ website.
Back in the studio I have a mentoring session with a social media guru via Help Musicians. It’s part of their album support package and very useful.
I manage to develop the third new song and re-write the lyrics onto something more meaningful. In between times I nip to the office to dye the keyfobs…hopefully I’ll get them finished tomorrow.
It’s nearly 9pm when we have dinner then wander along the road for a drink with Barbara and Thorsten. Good to catch up!
