Hey all

So I’m getting back into this digital learning thing after having a bunch of stuff on my analogue plate for a while.  I just jumped into my first time really participating in this big world of Coursera, and found inspiration in the first video lecture.  I have made this video and passed in on to you guys – #moreMOOClove.

The instructor, Pat Pattison, spoke about building boxes in our songwriting.  The boxes grow in size at each verse because it must carry the information and the sentiment of the box before it.  We want to build our songs in such a way that they become more complex with each verse, reaching a climax at the end, rather than the beginning.  In this song, I think I have lost the momentum by the last verse… really it’s just my standard verse about “I’m not done this song yet….”  Soooo…. if anyone has any ideas about how I can continue to grow the song – either by adding information in the last, or moving some of the information from the 1st and 2nd, jump on in!!!
