That’s right YouTube users, be very aware. You’re about to be hit with some of the biggest news since the days you began watching funny cats fall off tables. Brace yourselves. Are you ready? Here it is!!!
I’ve given the green light for this ’1 song per fortnight’ idea.
Please, people. Contain your excitement!
Ok, enough of the sarcasm. But, jokes aside, I will be writing a new song every 14 days and uploading the results to YouTube, regardless of its integrity. So if you’re on YouTube, please take a second to click this link – Sam Dawson On YouTube, followed by the subscribe button towards the top of my channel. This will make us internetz friends! Huzzah!
The reason for me doing this is to keep myself on the ball when it comes to writing, as well as hopefully entertaining you guys, even if only for a few minutes. So be grateful!
Enough talk. This fortnight’s song is called ‘Breathe’, and you can give it a listen right here:
I promise not to bug you again, but please do subscribe if you’re on YouTube!
In early preparation, I’ve just started work on the next fortnight’s song, and I can’t see me nailing it before the remaining 12 days are up! I’m struggling to just get one section down at the minute. Here’s a little preview of what’s managed to find it’s way out of my guitar:
I’ve also posted a new article on the site, ‘Suspended Chords Are Underused‘. I admit, it’s a rather bold statement, and a controversial title to say the least. But I hope the songwriters amongst you may find some use in it. It’s semi-inspired by a lecture we had the other week based around suspended chords, along with my own take on how they can be used/how I like to use them.
Speaking of articles, they too will becoming much more of a regularity – again I’m looking at writing every fortnight, but that will depend on the workload *how much sleep I would like* for now.
Anywho, I guess it’s back to practising for me. This assessment’s ‘Live Performance Practice’ is Britney Spears’ Toxic. (Score!) So I’m currently trying to play my acoustic as robotically as possible for the satisfaction of my lecturer, Frankie Tontoh. I’m wondering if we’d be able to put a ‘Guitar Pro’ version of it on in the background for some super-metronomic playing.
I’m not sure Frank would allow it though.
