the nitty and the gritty

i am reminded about the work involved in finishing music as i have been sitting around analyzing the chords in my music and trying to figure out the musical explanation for what my songs do so that i can intellectually craft backing parts and harmonies.

its easy to write neat sounding chord progressions while in an alternate tuning using my ear. or just play the solo parts over and over and solo over them for hours until something sticks.

but this step of finding ways to tie all the chaos and happy accidents together requires skills i haven't used much and sometimes i forget i have. but it just takes time and energy and remembering theory to figure it out.
