Well, as I approach the home stretch of this marathon called the 50/90 Songwriting Challenge I can proudly say that I’ve been very busy writing and uploading eight more songs taking my total to 42.
In the last two weeks alone I was able to upload 15 songs alone and I did that by making sure that I was able to fine-tune my songwriting process enough to allow me to work on more than one song at a time.
I would get the basic structure down and map out the song format in Logic Pro X, sort out tempos and the drums loops/samples then start recording the other instruments until I’m happy with the songs overall arrangement.
At any one time I would have about 3 to 4 songs going at once and it’s then that I like to record all the vocals last.
I’m finding that this workflow is driving me a little crazy but I know that the frenetic writing/recording pace I’ve been building and maintaining is going to finish very soon. I now have eight more songs to go and 19 days to complete it.
It’s looking very achievable and I can almost see the end in sight.
If you want to check out what I’ve done so far just head on over to my 50/90 Songwriting Challenge page and if there’s a song idea you’d like me to tackle for the challenge just let me know and I’ll see what I can do for you.
