Well, we’re a little more than half way through September.  My goal has been to write some new music this month and work towards a new CD at some point.

Hmmm.  I have little 4 bar chord progressions and scraps of melodic content around the piano.  I even have a notebook filling with mind maps and sketches of stories.  I have nothing completed.

On the plus side, I’ve been working with Anders Blichfeldt on his new project.  For those of you outside the Danish music scene, he is the lead singer for a rock band called Big Fat Snake.  He’s making an intimate CD featuring his stories of love and funny adventures.  I’m honored that he asked me to assemble a trio to back him.  Over the last week, we’ve played through the tunes, refined the arrangements, and had time to talk about how we write music.  I got inspired.

Then I wrote this:

Now, I need your help.  I need a story or a title to kick start my lyric writing.  Listen to it a couple of times.  It is the melody, a short piano solo, and back to the melody.  Write your thoughts down in the comment area below.  It could be anything from how it makes you feel, images that come to mind, or a proposed title.

I can’t wait to read your ideas!
