I want to get my feelings under one hat

This is a song I would like to rework. It should be done faster.

Sometimes it’s better to overrate problems than to underrate them.

Sometimes it’s better to overrate problems than to underrate them.

I’m going to play my music with other musicians. “Please send me the notes before rehearsal!” said the piano player. I said “Aw, it’s totally easy, I think I can explain the music with a few words.”

But it might just be easy because it’s my music and maybe I’ll have difficulties to explain. I think I’ll write down some notes. Didn’t do that for years.

Bluesize

December 29, 2010 Leave a comment

In analogy to visualize, can you bluesize an idea, a picture? Can you translate an idea, an image into a blues?

Why a blues, why not music in general?

Because a blues has this very clear form. I need the clear form. I even need the form to play with form.

The problem there for me are the lyrics. The combination of sense with music.
