That's good to hear. John Lennon, who did a little song-writing himself, lamented 'throwing away' a lot of stuff he wrote as a young boy, young man, and posed the question, "Who was I to judge?" As the song-writer you are the first listener. You make all kinds of judgment calls, and 'complete' your song. Maybe some of your decisions were limited by your experience, shaped by your tastes, flawed by your inexperience, but each was a learning experience influencing the next one you wrote. The electronic world is often an annoyance, but it's good to hear that you were able to retrieve your works, thanks to the internet. My philosophy is that there will always be another song to be written. Despite thousands of years of song-writing we have not exhausted the possibilities. Someone will write a great new song and we'll all hear it and many of us will declare it a great new song. So why not you? As long as you keep reaching for your instruments, and exploring what your mind can do with notes and chords and words and tempos and percussion, the possibilities are endless. Welcome MusicGirl971. And tell #s1 through 970 and 972 on to stop by and explore JustPlainFolks!
