Passionate Surrender

April 17, 2008 9:27 PM

More three part solo. This time even the melody is improvised. The lyrics are a poem that caught my eye online. (link inside)

The poem is "Passionate Surrender" by Pauline Hamblin

I was looking online for poems I could write a guitar part to and found this one. I ran the microphone while I hummed a few guesses at a melody and didn't think anything about it. When I listened to what I had recorded the next day I decided to do another A capella piece

Its still the laptop microphone, but I think I'm getting better about killing the white noise.

Another nice one.

Do you work out in advance how the harmonies will work, or do you just wing it?

I love this stiff. Keep it coming.

Thanks for the kind words.

I kinda just wing the harmonies as I go. I used to look at lyrics to songs I didn't know and make up melodies. I did the same here, except it was just a poem. The harmony just seemed to fit on top of it.
