Fires of Bangkok: Wrap up

aK-avioatorsWell, I only made it through 19 songs. Thanksgiving and Christmas gatherings definitely put the brakes on things but the real truth is, writing and recording songs at this pace will drive a person mad. The first week was exciting, the second obsessive, the third just plain crazy. I decided rather than go crazy over it all that I would go ahead and admit that writers block had set in. Not that there were no ideas flowing, it was more about the quality of the ideas. To write a good song I always like to have that improvisational enlightenment thing happening. Without that feeling the melodies just are not as good and the words become lame. I have written songs at a fast pace in the past but doing it day after day without a break is draining. I must say that Eric and CJ pulled off something incredibly difficult and deserve a hand for finishing the insanity.

For those who took the time to listen, Many Thanks! I want to also thank CJ for putting forth the effort to keep something like this going, i do not take that for granted. This process definitely offered me a much needed kick in the butt. I am looking forward to hearing music from the next victims. Until then I don’t think I want to hear music for a few days.
