Well, I fell off the wagon again. I was working on a song, but got discouraged and eventually just stopped working on it again. I want to say that I'll be done soon, or that I've been quietly rehearsing the parts in the meantime, but the fact is, I haven't touched it since I tried doing a different vocal harmony take a few weeks back. Haven't rehearsed or recorded any of the other parts. I can barely hear them in my head at this point.

Basically, the song turned out to be a little more up and chipper than perhaps the lyrics called for. Leaves me with the problem that I don't hear another melody for those lyrics. It's a decent enough melody, and I should do something with it. I just can't seem to convince myself that I'm headed in the right direction. The only person I have to sit and talk stuff like this over with is rarely available to me, and basically told me to figure it out myself. I really need to start talking to more musicians again.

Anyway, I have to write a song for a project I'm working on, and I only vaguely have that one in my head, so I don't know what's going to happen with it.

I can't tell you how frustrating it is, being so detached from the music that used to just flow like water through me. Sometimes it rushes through so fast I have to run to keep up, but so much of the time, it just eludes me.
