It's "A Joyful Noise"

OK, I'm a little behind.

Thursday morning, I got up early and I re-cut the acoustic guitar for "Sunshine". I haven't gotten a chance to play it for John, though, because his wife has been there with him whenever he comes over. He's trying to record the song as a birthday present for her.

Of course, I'm hoping she doesn't find this blog...

She's not much on the net, so, I'm not worried.

And then thursday night, the cellist came over. This tune is really shaping up. It's not easy for the musicians to play. A tough part. But it's sounding good.

Then, after they left, I cut some guide vocals for "Rejoice". While I was doing that, Brendon came up to me and said, "Can I sing you a song I wrote?"


So, he sings this song, and where most of the songs he makes up are rambling explorations of atonal art (he's just barely six years old) intended primarily to hold my attention, this one actually has verses and a melody. He even had a "lyric sheet" which had a stick-figure picture to remind him what each verse was about.

So, I readjusted the microphone and had him re-sing it, and we burned it onto a CD. He was pretty excited about that.

Then yesterday, as I was coming home from the Boy's Ranch (I'm teaching a songwriting class there), I started hearing a song I'd bgen working on in my head. So, when I got home, I pulled out the lyrics and finally worked out some things in the chords that have been bugging me for a long time.

So, the song is basically written, now. It's called "Play the Cards" (or maybe "Play Your Cards"... I haven't decided which, yet.
