This one's a little newer than my previous post:

Someone on here posted a video a while back with some great songwriting tips in it, and I thought I'd try to follow as many of them as I could. This is the result...

Boy, after not writing a song or doing any recording for nearly 10 years, you sure get rusty. Hoping my vocal technique, among other things, improves with practice.

Here're the stats:

Backing tracks created entirely w/BIAB v. 2009, style was POPH085. I didn't do anything to customize it at all. Just used it out of the box. I hope to be more creative with this stuff in the future, but there's a big learning curve for me here. Used Realband for recording vocals and mixing.

Can't find the words

I'd like to write a song today
Take all the things I feel and send them on their way
I'd like someone to understand
Someone who's suffered too
At their own hand

I've got so many
So many words inside
So many things I've never said
But I can't find a way
To make those words come out
They're stuck inside my brain
I need to rip them out

But I don't know what I should say
Can't bring my thoughts into the light of day
I keep my feelings locked inside
I can't expose myself
I'd only run and hide

I've got so many
So many words inside
So many things I've never said
But I can't find a way
To make those words come out
They're stuck inside my brain
I need to rip them out

So many things are left unsaid
The pressure mounts and pounds inside my head
But there is nothing I can do
'Cause I will never get to talk to you

What a lovely song.
I too can't find the words to say why, because that was beautiful.
Lovely lyrics....2nd line paints a picture....wonderful

isn't the PGMusic suite of programs great? To make a song this cool right out of the box is just amazing!

You've got a real Neil Young vibe going in this song, and I like it

I've reached an age where my hearing is not so precise anymore, and I often have a time understanding lyrics. Many of the people who post songs here also post the lyrics. Makes it easy (for us... but its more work for you)

Thanks everyone for your comments. You are all too nice!

Pat, yes, this software is unbelievable! I know I've only scratched the surface of what it can do.. It really is like having my own band, ready any time I want to play, who can play in whatever style and switch any time. Crazy!!

Can't wait to get going with version 2013!!

hopefully there will be a mid-year version in 2013 as in the past several years... if that's the plan, it must be close, because we're already past the numeric middle of the year. Last year it was released in early August
