Circle Me

August 24, 2011 10:46 PM

I am wrong, I am not correct.

A dear friend was visiting, a musician, and we've never had the chance to write together. While discussing this fact, I mentioned the current SongFight! title, and that I was hung up on the number of people that would write a song about Google+. She suggested it would be better as a song about circling wrong answers. I picked up my ukulele and sung (more or less) the opening line that you hear in this recording, and a few minutes later, the chorus. After several days of letting it simmer in the back of my head, the rest came out. Thanks, Dawn!

Three takes, back to back, combining the best parts as one cohesive whole. Ukulele and me at the same time into two cheapo Chinese-manufactured mics from Guitar Center, into GarageBand.

Hey, pretty sweet. Sounds like you're hitting the top of your singing range but it works. I like the rhyme of "cigar" and "gold star."

add some more instruments and capo it to sing it lower- if you capo it high enough, you can just drop to a lower key. this might be harder with a uke, but perhaps worth a try with a guitar.
