----- Overview -----

These songs don't have a title either. Their names are of the form New Song and a sequence number.

I have given up promoting my songs on Facebook as I received very little (none) support from local musicians but have had some support from friends.
It's like pulling teeth!

From now on, you can find my songs in one of two ways: My YouTube channel or through this website.

 

Additional Information.

The X series of songs culminated with a song whose content was about me accepting who I am.
People of all sorts of persuasions have always thought of me as odd/different. Now I understand why.

The Y series of songs was an attempt to reach people, musicians and others, that could possibly find time to comment on my song posts. I have now abandoned my effort as the silence was deafening.

I have always been of the mind that I'm sharing what I create so others can enjoy them. Now I will follow a different path.

The steps have always been:

1. Think of an idea. This could be words or music.
If I have words, then I have obviously thought about a subject and the story unfolds. If the music comes first, then the feel of the music will suggest a topic.
2. Create a framework for the song.
Is it an instrumental? Some songs (tunes) don't need words.
What instruments should I use?
Harmony always sweetens a song, whether instruments or voices.
3. Record the song.
I now record snippets of a song, a few bars, and stitch them together. I don't have the patience or the stamina to play a whole song.
Some parts, even a bar, can have different tunings to achieve what I hear..
4. Publish the song to my YouTube channel.
5. Announce the song via Facebook in the hope it will generate some feedback.


Step 5 has proved the most problematic for me.

A few comments from my friends and no comments from my fellow musicians. I have struggled with this for some time and have finally decided that step 5 is redundant. It has no value.

I create songs for my own pleasure and will continue to do so. I just don't wish to continue providing new material and having it ignored.

Having someone 'like' a song is really slap in the face because it's anonymous. You don't know who has liked the song, and, they have not entered into a communication with you. They have used my music for free and not acknowledged the fact. Clearly not social.

It's like most things, if your interested in something, you will seek it out. Clearly, music will not be found on commercial services. Do yourself a favour and seek new music. There's a lot of fantastic music out there and all you have to do is look for it.
