Process of Writing: Song Arrangement?



So I think I mentioned a while back that I was trying to compose a new song to go on my album/EP (haven’t decided which yet) I probably didn’t say what I was doing with the song at that. Hm.

Anyway, that project basically crashed so I decided “Why not arrange one that’s already written? ” If you don’t take care of the things of others who will give you what is your own? Or something like that =)  So I’ve started work on this song Stronger by Mandisa. I guess this isn’t full on writing, but I am repackaging the it as a piano/vocal cover. Tough choice since I had to sell my digital piano which is easy to record in any environment because you simply connect to the audio output and record. The phone could be ringing, the dog could be barking, my sisters could be screaming and laughing in the next room–no problem!



Then I just edit, as you see above, and voila! But I can’t do that this time I have to record this love piece of furniture.


lol I call it furniture because of the amount of stuff we normally have on it. It’s a good piano but out of tune! sigh. Well I’ll get the concept of the track laid in and then my duet partner and I can lay down our lines and see if it works–fingers crossed. If it doesn’t work, obviously we need a tuned piano =) In any case we’ll have a clearer idea of what we want to do with the song. I’m looking forward to see what happens with this arrangement.
