For the duration of the summer, I’m posting music written specifically for “Zeus” every Friday. Some or all of these songs will be included on my next release – “The Zeus Collective”, which will be available for free download upon completion.
It’s been an extremely busy week, so I’ll follow-up with notes later this weekend.
EDIT: OK, notes time. Not much to add here. This was an idea that crept up on me on Monday morning – a simple B-G#m – F# – E chord progression with a melody that fell into place. With the lady coming to visit on Wednesday, I only had a couple of evenings to get everything in order and set for recording Friday afternoon. I think that shows. Admittedly, this is not my best work; it’s just OK in my book. For starters, there really isn’t much of a hook, and the melody is too forgettable. Looking at this piece structurally, there is no definitive chorus but rather six verse parts that formed from mumbled jibberish during a scratch take. This was intentional, a different approach to the songwriting craft, yet the end product doesn’t do much for me. That’s what’s nice about this weekly process: The good ones stick; the bad ones have a short shelf life.
