I have to let you know right up front, the idea for this tune comes from the lovely and talented Lisa Firestone. (More about her in a minute*) It’s one of those clever song ideas that made me laugh, then grabbed me by the brain and wouldn’t let go.
It’s called How ‘Bout That Game, and this is a simple guitar/vocal demo done with Garageband software on a Mac. Garageband is cool, but you gotta know what you’re doing. And as you might already be aware, I possess an Analog Brain In A Digital World.
Still, the song is there and all its parts are in the right order. You can listen by clicking the link below. After you listen, just hit your back button to return here and unleash your esteemed personal opinion in the comment box below. Critique it any way you like. Honesty is optional, but usually preferred.
(If you’ve never commented on this blog before, it’ll take a few minutes for your comment to be approved by the Head Maestro – me – but don’t worry, it’ll show up!)
– FYI – it’s not meant to be a “comedy” song. More like a cute/clever love song with a lot of wordplay. Cool? So what do you think? Is it finished? Is it close? Or do we need to pat it on the head, send it out to the cornfield, and start over?
Thanks for listening!
