Writing Music

Postby angus.hendrick » Mon Jan 01, 2018 1:33 am

I'm dangerously close to being 50 years old and I have not followed through on a dream that was born when I was 15: to write some music. I have a goal of writing an album by the end of 2018. I'm posting about my efforts at http://dangeroustoons.blogspot.com. I'm using Linux tools, including Ardour, Drumgizmo, Cadence, and of course Jack, and I will be include info about those, as well as the experience of overcoming 30+ years worth of stage fright and writer's block.

Best of luck.
Don't get too bogged down with detail at first, just get the ideas down in some form - even if it's just humming into a mic. Nobody else will ever hear those bits :lol:

Excellent plan, Angus. Looking forward to hearing what you come up with and following your process.

You might be interested in attempting one of these February challenges along the way:
RPM Challenge

I know it's crazy to think of doing it in just one month, but thousands of folks participate in these things and pull it off despite work and family obligations. It's fun, there's no judgment, and nothing works better than a deadline.

Try it if you can--even if you don't finish, you'll have a bunch of stuff to work with for the next ten months :)
