Songwriting

 Heather & I have been making a lot of progress with our songwriting. We recently completed a 6 week internet course offered through Berklee College of Music with Professor Pat Pattison. WOW! We both learned so much. Pat's class gave us tools to help with songwriting that seem like common sense and are easy to apply. The mark of a good teacher! I took 39 pages of notes that have already become an invaluable resource with our writing and in helping my students with their songs.

Speaking of new songs! We'll be debuting a brand new duet on Friday at the Village Wine shop. It's called "Harmony" and here's the story: I came up with some chord changes and a melody a couple months ago. After playing it for a while, I somehow got the idea it could be about a girl that walks into a nightclub and falls in love with the singer on stage. He also notices her and they start trading musical lines creating a story. The trick is they can't hear what each other is saying -- only the audience gets both sides of the conversation. Similar to a love scene in a Broadway musical. Are you confused? I gave the idea to Heather and she did a great job with the lyrics. Hope you like it!


Supercross

A couple weekends ago we went to our first supercross race in St. Louis. I watch the series every week but it was a lot more intense live! We're already planning to go to the Indy race next year.

In the 450cc main event, series points leader Ryan Dungey started 1st and won by a pretty wide margin. But Eli Tomac was fun to watch. He started 7th and mounted a charge through the field winding up 2nd. Eli was quickly closing in on Ryan but ran out of time.
