52 Weeks of Music – Week 3: Complications

Song 3, after some teething troubles, is finally done.  It’s called Complications, and it’s a lot shorter than the last song.

Download it HERE.

The song was based on an idea I was originally planning to do for Week 4, but I decided to use it for Week 3.  Why?

Well, my original plan for this week was to revisit one of my old songs, Can You See Me?, but after programming the drums, putting down a bass part and having a play through on guitar, I decided I just wasn’t feeling it, and decided to use the new idea I’d put down on the Voice Memos app on my iPhone the night previous.  And thus, Complications was born.

I could’ve quite easily made it longer – some sort of turnaround bridge section would’ve been nice, and maybe another verse and/or chorus could’ve been squeezed in, but in this case, I quite like it the way it is.

And yes, it’s not my best vocal performance.  Been feeling very tired and under the weather today.  🙁  Still, at least I’m maintaining my 100% strike rate.  🙂
