Shallow

Yes, I saw A Star is Born. I actually thought the story was a bit corny. But I fell in love with Shallow by Lady Gaga. Only thing is while the lyrics and emotion resonated with me the vibe did not. If that makes sense. In my opinion it should have been written as a call in response versus male solo, female solo, duet, female solo. So I reworked it and here is the result.

Work in progress

I’m definitely not done with it. I haven’t mastered it or mixed it down. It’s about half way done in terms of song writing. It still needs the main chorus, of which I need to create a build with tension and stuff. ALL NEW TERMS AND SKILLS FOR ME.

I rearranged the words to speak for how I currently feel right now. If you listen to the song, it is me speaking to you from my heart.

It’s hard to define what you are actually feeling. I’ve got a few items that I have done from completely scratch but I feel these reworks are giving me the necessary skills to truly speak to you…like Anderson .Paak or Mac Miller. Jay Dilla is another master that speaks to me. I hope to reach deep into myself and fine my muse like they found theirs.

Mine has been stifled by self doubt. I wasted 20 years not believing in myself but this little ditty above. That little thing is the third song I have ever put effort into. THREE. And maybe it’s not your style. It’s not even really mine yet, but it doesn’t make me feel embarrassed to have made it. Something, I always have felt before. I would feel shivers as I heard parts that weren’t “perfect”. Even though I don’t even believe in perfection. Only the illusion of it. Perfection is in being. It’s Aristotelian but that’s another show.
