I hope this is allowed in this group.

I usually post in poetry. For the last maybe 5 months Iíve been working as a lyricist for a band. They asked me to work on this project, but the musicians are all over the East coast and weíre all locked down (except the guy in Florida but he self-isolated.) So I have no music, but the doodling is supposed to be a guitar picking.

2. Thank you so much!

Right now everything is a song. If they donít get to actually become music, Iíll probably take out the chorus and publish them as poems. This YouTube video was the first time Iíve ever had an audience. I was so self-conscious that Iíd stop singing if someone came within hearing distance.

4. The band does nu metal, but...

After every 4 songs they record that Iíve written, the 5th recording session is for me. Theyíll play and do backup vocals for me. So some of my song are kind of country, some are songs whose genre I donít know. Maybe alternative. I havenít done any yet because they were in the middle of the 4th song when the virus hit.

Oh, if you like it, could you please hit the 👍 thumbs up spot.

5. And the doodling

... Is in place of a guitar. Weíre on lockdown, so I couldnít get together with the guitarist. So I doodled.


And Thank you!

6. That's interesting

I detected a little country-ish tone to it but I could even see (hear?) it as an acoustic thing.

7. It could probably work.

After I write the songs, I email the lyrics and then I have to send them a video of me singing it. No picture though. I put my phone face down so itís just a black screen. So I learned today, for the first time ever, that I make faces when I sing! But because I always send them with just my voice, I tend to try to make a noise that is somewhat close to the way an instrument would sound in certain places. So maybe it doesnít HAVE to have the guitar.
