Thread Name: Your First song
Subject: RE: Your First song
My first couple of songs weren't exactly garbage. They were just too self-conscious... "Look at me, Ma.. I'm writing a song." They also were about experiences that weren't mine. The first two real songs I wrote were about a gunfight and an escaped slave. They were as shallow as I was when I wrote them. Not that I'm necessarily any deeper. I just try not to get in beyond my depth when it comes to writing songs.
