2024 RPM Challenge idea number 20 becomes finished song number 20. Fitting, eh? This one isn't going to make the final album. It's okay but I think there are at least 10 songs better this year. Oh well. I'm too tired to care. 2.5 hours…

2024 RPM Challenge idea number 14 becomes finished song number 19. Fmajor7 to Eminor7. I use that change a lot. I used it as the entire basis of this song. It didn't really work. This one doesn't do much for me. It's okay, but it's not…

2024 RPM Challenge idea number 16 becomes finished song number 17. This one will make the album, I think. I kinda like it even though I am sure I have written this exact song about 100 times before. Oh well. It has a nice 6/8 groove…

2024 RPM Challenge idea number 15 becomes finished song number 16. This one is okay. Better than most of the garbage I've piled up this year. I think it will make the final album, but it's sort of on the bubble. I'll bury it in the middle…

2024 RPM Challenge idea number 17 becomes finished song number 15. I tried to be screwy and make the verses the more developed section than the chorus. Just for something different. There are vocal harmonies in the verses but not in the chorus…

2024 RPM Challenge idea number 11 becomes finished song number 13. This one is okay. We'll say it's on the bubble as far as making the final RPM Challenge submission is concerned. I like the vocal harmony at the end and unlike most of the…

(Remastered 22/10/2021) And here we go - Edith FINALLY gets it... Actually, she's been getting it ever since I wrote it on the 29th May. I thought it would take a week or so, but it proved to be more of a fight than I was expecting. On…

Song idea number one for the 2024 RPM Challenge becomes finished song number one. This might be the only song I like for this year's RPM Challenge. We'll see. Is the mix too reverby? Probably. I like it today but I might not like it tomorrow…

Song idea number 20 is finished song number eight of 50 for the 2023 50/90 challenge. I really like the vibe of this one, simple and basic with a cool groove, but I HATE the vocals. The melody, the lyrics, and most of all the performance…

Song idea number 12 becomes finished mix number ten of 50 for the 2023 50/90 challenge. I don't hate it, but the lyrics are laughably bad and there are some really bad pitches in the vocals in the chorus that were copied and pasted all over…

Prior to the switch to the white UI I was having an issue where all of my uploads were marked as private and I couldn’t change them. I created a second account and moved on. Then after the white UI switch I found a couple of tracks had vanished so I moved everything back to this account and deleted v2.
