My Muse Paid Me a Visit

For the first time in forever, I tickled the keys of my Young Chang upright over the last couple of days. It needs a tuning, but still sounds nearly as good as it did when I’d bought it nineteen years go.

[Begin tangent] Wow, I can’t believe I’ve owned this piano for that long. And it’s traveled everywhere with me. There are few nicks on its black lacquered finish but otherwise it’s in very good shape. I may finally have to part with it in a few months. But I may (or may not) share the reason behind on a separate post. [End of tangent].

I play by ear so most times I’m just messing around with chord progressions or maybe play any number of songs I’d written in the past or try to figure out the chords to an existing song.

These past couple of days, I’ve been toying with a new song. It’s got a pretty good melody and has a good progression from stanza to refrain to the chorus. I don’t have a bridge yet, and may not need one. I also don’t have any lyrics to it yet, but believe to have a pretty decent melody already.

Although lyrics writing is not my strong suit, I’m going to try to put some strings of words together today while my muse is still around.

Who knows? Maybe I won’t finish this song. Maybe I will.

    Hey! I used to have a Young Chang! Her name was Veronica. It was an OK piano…but I had to sell it since it wouldn’t fit into my teeny apartment. I got a pretty decent trade-in for a beautiful Kawai upright. Is yours an upright or a grand?

    Good for you for becoming inspired to make music. I’d love to hear what you come up with. Now, here’s the piano teacher speaking: practice, practice, practice!

    OK, I’m having a stupid kind of day. I just reread your post and saw that you answered my question, so ignore it. Duh.
