This weekend at 4:30 am I was dosing off and some song just started flowing in my head. Mainly lyrics and a style of singing them though I am not a singer at all but background music was in my head to it also. I have been through this time and time again, too often I just was so comfortable in bed that I though yeah I will remember the idea later but oh no that is never the case. This time I was surprised how complete the song just flowed together as I lay in bed that I forced myself up, tore off a piece of a 12 pack coke carton and sloppily wrote down all the lines, verses and chorus to the song. I also picked up my guitar and came up with a basis and key for the guitar chords which turned out to be e minor in the end. I am still working on it but the foundation is there and I am so glad I got my lazy self out of bed unlike the other times I lost the idea later. Which makes me ask you, when you come up with a song or idea do you usually base it around your instrument or do you base the music around your words or idea for singing? I am sure most of you wind up tweaking both to final production but usually I have this whole idea in my head and lyrics before I even try to play to it and usually my minds idea for the music has to be rearranged sometimes way far away from what I thought it would be to fit around the words and singing idea.
