What a time to post wanting musos. The only ones up are the ones who haven’t got to bed yet.
I was talking to a friend who is a musician and mentioned a few snippets of things I thought would make good song lyrics. He agreed and said I should work with them and turn them into songs. All I play is pretty ordinary guitar so the thought was fairly daunting.
Although he is a luddite and uses computers very little he suggested, get some software. He mused there must be stuff that will quickly lay down a drum beat, maybe add a bass line and cycle through whatever chord progression you choose. Then he said it wouldn’t matter how long I fooled around finding the melody.
So I looked up such things and like most things in modern life it would be quicker and easier if I had less choices.
Who uses what? Simple is key I am not after CD quality as he will provide a complete band if he likes the songs. I want to quickly knock up a framework to play around in.
Of course any clues at all will be appreciated because my musical mentor has no idea.
