Development of a song

Posted: November 7, 2011 in Uncategorized

I have a song that is getting some attention here in Nashville called “That’s When I Love Her So” an uptempo country song that I recorded in the Fall of 2010.

I have a hand held voice recorder that I keep by my side to record moments of inspiration. It has been valuable in my songwriting process. Every now and then I download the tracks to my laptop to make room for more newer creations on the VR. Well, a few weeks ago I was listening to what I’d recorded and ran across a very early version of the sogn above – but at that time it was titled “That’s All I Need To Know”

In stark contrast to the finished uptempo guitar driven song, this was slower and based on the piano. Besides the title change, at that time (6/10/10) I had not yet written a bridge.

Anyway, I thought my songwriting friends might find the growth process of this particular song interesting.

Please leave some feedback or tales of your own writing experiences.
Peace!
Dave
