Sometimes it’s really difficult to find a supporting part for an initial inspiration. This one is another example of such a conundrum.
A bit of a rocker, this one. Not much else to add.
This one was a little tough to get my mind around for the complimentary part. It is in an odd meter and I can usually view odd meters in a clear way, but I guess I was a little foggy brained this morning.
What I’m on about is that I view odd meters as one line, phrase, rhythm, whatever, then its inverse. Most people view odd meters one way, which is technically correct, but less exciting in this ‘Composer’s’ opinion.
I took a few days off from the Daily Ditty series. Not for lack of inspiration, but rather a schedule change.
I like to bike to work and doing so requires that I leave ten minutes earlier each morning. Well, this was the ten minute spot I was using to make the Daily Ditty.
I tried to make time in the evening for these, but I just don’t feel like doing it then. So sue me. If I am motivated enough to get out of bed when my earlier alarm sounds, then you will get a Daily Ditty.
An uptempo rocker for Friday because, well, what else would we play on a Friday?
Today I had the theme from the TV show MASH in my head. I think the name is ‘Suicide Is Painless’, which is kinda creepy. I played something a little ‘outside’ to get away from the obvious a little bit.
Today I had Michael Jackson’s ‘I Just Can’t Stop Loving You’ in my head. I think that was the tune. Anyway, for whatever it’s worth…
Today’s Daily Ditty was created after waking with Tom Petty in my head. Not literally, that would not end well. However, it was a mashup of ‘Don’t Come Around Here No More’ and ‘American Girl’.
That’s enough to make one’s head explode.
I am doing this Daily Ditty series to encourage you in your own creativity. You can see my creative process with its mistakes and my moments of thought. Not that you can tell what I’m thinking, but you can see the smoke coming from my ears.
Please share if you like it. You can share if you hate it too.
Here’s the idea: I play every morning before leaving for the office. This morning I created a new ‘tune’ and thought it might be interesting to make videos of me doing this daily. Nothing extravagant, but something nonetheless.
