Comments for entry Songwriting
I don't talk much about it, but I have been writing songs since I was 13. On the Celtar CD there are some relatively recent songs, but others are a few years old. But recently I started to co-write with a guy I used to be in a band with about 20 years ago! He found me over the internet and first broached this idea about 2 years ago. It took until now for me to clear my plate and get my mind into writing again.
It is a little like a marriage. At first you feel funny about sharing ideas. You don't know if you want your ideas challenged, and you don't want to hurt the other's feelings by rejecting his ideas. But now we seem to be getting past that. We are writing songs that neither of us would have written on our own. He pointed out that the best songs are usually written as a team (Lennon/McCartney, Gershwin/Gershwin, Rogers/Hart, Rogers/Hammerstein, Elton John/Bernie Talpin, even Garcia/Hunter). So maybe he has a point. We'll see if we can get a deal on a song.
