New YouTube Channel

Trying to pull all this together now that I have the trademarks in place and can use the Blusic and Blusician names now free of litigation. Here is the first video posting:

The Blusician YouTube channel (this video), which will be linked to Blusician web site, is here. A separate Blusic channel is here, where Blusic will be more about music and video exchange in general. Trying to always get more followers, so please follow.

Putting Songs Together

Over the past couple years, I have managed to finish the master’s program in songwriting and guitar at Berklee and move on as a musician. Lately I have noticed that I leave a lot of songwriting unfinished, and untrackable. In other words, if I want to go back to something I was working on days, weeks, or months ago, it is impossible to figure out the name of the folder or the location of the project. As of this month, I now just name the song projects I am working on by the date, until I get a complete song.

Part of the challenge to finishing songs is that I have always been working on lyrics without a melody in mind. Then go back later and make a harmony and melody fit the lyrics. Now I am turning that around. While using the Maschine I come up with a beat template in Maschine, which has some good drum kits installed, and I have pre-programmed about ten standard rock rhythms, and ten basic blues rhythms. That gives me a rhythmic base, that I will add a bass or keyboard… or, just a guitar. This at least gives me a verse loop to work from in putting lyrics down.
