Skeletons (Two Face)


Firstly, apologies for not meeting my post a week goal. The Dickens have been busy recording a little demo/ep and I have been quite busy at work. Forgive the brevity of this post then!

I have a goal of trying to make the skeleton of at least one song a week. This discipline means that sometimes you get an ideas worthy of investment, sometimes you just get a headache. I panic a bit if I don't have new ideas each week. I wonder if songwriting is a finite resource in each person. I can't tell anymore if I am writng good or bad songs. They just are what they are. I keep pressing in. I hope it will result in something I can proud of. I just can't tell...

This song comes from one of those weekly panic sessions. Here is the process:

1. Pick up acoustic guitar.
2. Strum away until I hum a tune
3. Quickly record it onto my phone so I don't forget it
4. Set up my archaic old zoom 8-track
5. Lay down a quick drum pattern to play along to.
6. Record bass, and two-three guitars
7. Throw some words down
8. Post it here

Remember, everything posted here is a skeleton. Nothing is finished. Only started. It is here to track the progress. They are genuine demos. Moments of my Sunday afternoon or evening pasted into memory.
